Do you keep trying to change your eating habits?
Are you struggling to let go of sugar?
Does the thought of eating more vegetables make you cringe or leave you at a loss for how?
You need 6 components to Change Your Eating Habits:
1. Knowledge. What, exactly, are you trying to change? Whose approach are you using? What method?
2. Comprehension. You’ve read a lot of articles and books. You know a lot about eating better. Now you need to translate this knowledge to YOUR situation. Techniques are general — your metabolism, lifestyle and health are specific.
3. Application. How will knowledge and techniques affect your habits? Integrating these pieces through a solid game is needed in order to create change.
4. Analysis. Track how you feel before and after making changes. Account for qualitative and quantitative changes to track what’s working and what’s not.
5. Synthesis. What structure will you use to make the new habits, which you’ve deemed effective, permanent? Creating new patterns requires a system to build new routines.
6. Evaluation. Tracking new patterns over a longer period of time gives a more accurate picture than analysis. Changes made, as a result of evaluation, will be smaller — generally just little tweaks.
