When choosing a healthy eating lifestyle, remember to stay positive. Replace saying “I can’t eat that.” with “I don’t eat that.” It’s more empowering to be in control of what you choose to eat instead of denying yourself from eating certain food items.
When making healthy eating lifestyle goals, make a decision that counts. Make goals that are SMART: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Timely. Start simple. It’s realistic to say, “I will only have one sweet a day.” Write it on a piece of paper and post it next to the pantry or refrigerator.
