A better plan to improve your health

Eating healthy and tasty

A better plan to improve your health

 

Starving yourself, cutting out entire food groups, having a dry month might all improve your health

 

All of these things start easy, and get harder as you go

 

Eating mindfully, controlling your portions, moderating your alcohol intake

 

These things are hard to start, and develop skill over time, which means they get easier the more you practice

 

Which is going to help you lose weight and keep it off over the long run? 

 

The key is to make the hard things easier to start 

 

So, make them smaller and more fun

 

Eating mindfully becomes setting a 15 minute timer for dinner

 

You have to eat one plate of food over the 15 minutes 

 

No waiting to the 14 minute mark and scoffing your meal in one minute, this has to be consistent mouthfuls over the entire time

 

It’s hard

 

But if done with the family, it can be a fun challenge

 

Maybe it takes two weeks before you can all do tick the box at least once

 

You don’t need to do it for every meal, just the experience of doing it once will give you an idea of why it’s so important 

 

Putting down your knife and fork until you’ve finished chewing

 

No screens on while you eat

 

Actually talking to each other and listening and interacting meaningfully

 

Enjoying the food, commenting on it

 

These are all things that will help dinner take 15 minutes to eat

 

Why will this approach improve your health?

 

The learning, the skill development, the boring stuff which will be critical to your success

 

Make that part fun

 

Turn it into a game

 

Include your family and friends

The pay off is obvious, you can see the good parts of it already

 

It might be awkward to begin with, this is to be expected, maybe you don’t regularly sit down with nothing else to do but talk and eat slowly 

 

Time will make you better at it, the alternatives?

 

Maybe you’ll get slightly better at them but unless you plan on never drinking again

 

Or never eating another carb for the rest of your life

 

Well, they’re dead ends, and you know that

 

Time for something a little different this time

 

Something that will last
