Create Healthy Eating Habits for Permanent Weight Loss

Weight loss is sometimes a roller coaster ride.  We shed pounds to squeeze into our favorite dress for each special event through the year.  But, what if weight loss was less of an adventure and more of a healthy habit?

Creating healthy eating habits is the key to a successful and permanent weight loss lifestyle.  Learn how our expert guest blogger suggests you start creating the proper food habits.

Keep the Junk Food Out

First and foremost, keep foods that do NOT contribute to your well being out of the house. High sugar, high starch foods should be cleared out the day you decide you want to get healthy. I understand that it may be wasteful, but you have to clear unhealthful foods out.
Once they are gone, then you have to shop for only foods that will assist you in getting to your goal.

When at the supermarket; shop the perimeter. Avoid the aisles and any other processed foods you may come upon.

Read all labels, if you can’t pronounce the ingredients, put it back. Better yet, just eat whole, natural foods that don’t come in packages and you won’t have to worry about the ingredient list.

  1. I agree with you 100%! My husband and I adopted a vegan diet on April 30th. I felt a little guilty about throwing “good” food away — even if it wasn’t good for us! I boxed up all of the food and was going to take it to one of the churches that does Meals on Wheels when I looked out my window and remembered that one of my neighbors is recently divorced. I asked her if she would like the food I had and she was so grateful! It was a win-win situation!

    Since my husband and I have gone on the vegan diet he has lost over 20 pounds (in less than 6 weeks)! Our goal is to help him lose 100 pounds. I know he will get there. He is already feeling much better and we both look better! I’m fitting in some clothes that had gotten too snug on me and he’s now wearing some things that haven’t fit in a long time.

    Deciding to try something radical (no dairy, no meat, no eggs) was the first step to getting healthy for us. Getting rid of the unhealthy (for us) food was the second step. Now we need to implement a regular exercise program and then I think we’re set.

    You’re right about shopping the periphery of the store. Going to farmer’s markets is another fun way to shop. Lastly, having a partner to help you stay committed and focused is key. Nice article!
