This may sound like common sense, but with our busy lifestyles, pre-planning meals in advance is far from simple. However, pre-planning is essential.
For most of us all we can do to just keep up with dayís activities, much less cook in advance. It really boils down to time management. If you have good choices in refrigerator, you will be more likely to eat that food. When healthy foods are unavailable, you will go out of your way to pantry, pizza parlor, or fast food restaurant for immediate gratification.
In a nut shell:
In some instances what we eat, when we eat it and how much we eat is due to a physiological reaction. However, it could be both emotional and physiological.
Diabetes is at an all-time high in adults and in teenagers. Often, when you wait too long in-between meals, blood sugar levels drop. This is when you may crave foods you normally donít eat.
One very easy practice to take is to try to control your blood sugar levels daily by watching types, amounts, and times that you eat. Eating right has a lot to do with how you look at food, how much you eat and what you eat. Recognize if you have eating patterns. The patterns may be lifestyle, emotional, physically related or all above. Pre-planning meals and shopping ahead solves a lot of poor decision making. Learn to push yourself away from table. YOU WILL EAT TOMORROW!
