You are what you eat. It’s as simple as that.
I’m a foodie, and I’ve definitely had my share of culinary sins. Although I’ve never been into sodas or any type of junk food, I enjoy eating delicious meals in nice restaurants, try local food and drink when I travel (and I travel a lot!), have an occasional glass of wine, etc.
I don’t force myself to give up on delicious food because that would limit my joy of living 😉 Nevertheless, I try to eat healthy 80 percent of the time, which works well for me.
Keep in mind that eating healthier may be challenging at first, but it becomes a habit after a while. Therefore, you should think long-term instead of making drastic short-term changes.
Having a sweet tooth? Find healthier sugar alternatives. Forgetting to eat enough veggies every day? Buy them regularly and place them on the counter instead of putting them in the cabinet, out of your sight. Not drinking enough water? Have a water bottle always with you, and when you work, have it on your desk.
Whatever your weak spot is, find it and work around it.
