However, we are here not to discuss what to eat or drink; but to discuss 5 extremely unhealthy eating habits, avoiding which you will not only lose those extra pounds, but will remain active and energetic leading to an improvement in your overall health!
The most common mistake that we do is skipping a breakfast, which means losing energy in the early hours of the day that eventually leads to munch on anything (chips, fried stuff) throughout the day.
Also known as food binging, which is the result of skipping meals. We let our body starve till it is on the verge of starvation and then load it with food that makes the situation even worse. It is important to eat smaller meals and increasing frequency of meals rather than eating a large meal in one go.
Sometimes we regard eating as a form of stress buster, which is another really bad eating habit that eventually leads you towards obesity and other chronic diseases. Eating while stressed or without being hungry munching on your favorite candy, chocolates, chips, ice creams may make you feel better for a short while, however, this is one habit that you need to break .
Eating while watching TV, reading, chatting with friends, talking over a phone, unknowingly leads to over-eating. Make sure to eat your meals without the distraction of any other activity. You will not only enjoy your food better but will be surprised as to how this simple habit will cut down your overall food intake and help you lose weight too!
Eating too close to bedtime will not only lead to weight gain, but welcome other problems like acidity and disturbed sleep. Make sure to eat several hours before your bedtime. Avoid eating large meals before bedtime.
Changing your lifestyle by taking small steps at a time will lead you to an overall improve in your health and even provide you a boost towards your weight management goals.
