How do you maintain a healthy food diet?

I wrote out a 15- minute meditation about who I am becoming, why, and how: by choosing better foods and being mindful of my consumption. I wrote it every day for 30 days before even trying to change, then the changes came easily. I also joined Meetups of mindful health- conscious individuals

I try to avoid buying junk food and replace sweets with fruit nd nuts and soda with water. I try to cook at he at night and pack the leftovers for lunch of the next at work to avoid buying fast food and to make the cooking process exciting i try to use different recipes to look at it as something fun!

Reflect and understand the reasonings behind why you want to eat better. Who/what does your diet affect? What was the defining moment that made you realize that you needed to change your eating habits?

When I do my best at eating healthy it usually means I’m doing two things
1. Tracking my food intake on an app like MyFitnessPal or the like. (Put in everything… even it it isn’t healthy and you don’t want to record it) This drives awareness of the healthy things that I like, and the pitfalls. It also helps me make smarter choices when I do splurge.

2. I have a partner who is trying to eat healthy too. We tend to encourage each other and that sense of accountability keeps me more focused.

Bonus: don’t be too hard on yourself if you fall off track. Just note it in the tracker and move on keeping focused on the end goal.

I eat steel cut oatmeal in the morning. It’s easy to make. You can eat with anything you want. I think the key to keep eating healthy food is easy to make, easy to add on other items

It’s difficult but most important: eat at regular intervals never get too hungry, always have a healthy but sweet snack (fruit and nut butter, almond milk pudding with cacao nibs, etc) to look forward to every evening so don’t feel deprived of sugar, prep meals and snacks on weekend, go by quality of food not calories

For me personally, a healthy food diet is not about eating the perfect food all the time. It’s more about finding the area where I can improve the most, this is where a change in habits will have the largest effect. So be honest and find your own dark corner of secrets or shame, like chocolate for breakfast, and make it a little better. And forgive yourself in 5 seconds when you don’t get it right, so you can “start over” and not go into procrastination. Or better, don’t look at it as starting over, view it as a process where you are learning new skills and using them more and more, increasing your quality of life.

Plan your meals ahead of time. That's the most important part, that you want to have healthy options in the house for when you're tired and you've already spent the entire day making decisions. Make sure you have alternatives too, for the times your plans go long or you decide on the spur of the moment to go out in the evening and you need to eat in the next 15 minutes.

i have always been disciplined about WHAT i eat because of allergies. but lately its been about HOW MUCH i eat because i have a tendency to overeat or to try and heal my emotional state with food. im on a journey to eliminate unhealthy habits and be more mindful. keeping a healthy diet isn’t easy, but it’s not impossible. discipline and self-control are the main factors involved.
