Print your PERSONAL FOOD PLANNER
Choose 1 food that you like to eat that you know is unhealthy for you
AND you are ready and willing to find a healthy substitute for. Write
it down in the FOODS I LIKE TO EAT THAT I SHOULD AVOID column.
Start with the foods that will be the easiest for
you to eliminate. This will make it a lot easier for you. As you
progress, you will find that foods that you are not ready eliminate now
will be easier to eliminate later as you are being successful in the
In the HEALTHY FOODS I CAN SUBSTITUTE column, write down as many
healthy foods that you can think of that you know you like or would
like to try that you think would work as a substitute for the food you
are trying to eliminate. When you are working on beverages,
don't forget to add water as a healthy substitute.
Every time you want to eat the food you wrote down
in the FOODS I LIKE TO EAT THAT I SHOULD AVOID column, go to your list
one of the foods that you wrote in the HEALTHY FOODS I CAN SUBSTITUTE
Every day or every other day, add another food to the FOODS I LIKE TO
EAT THAT I SHOULD AVOID column and enter as many healthy substitutes as
you can think of in the HEALTHY FOODS I CAN SUBSTITUTE column.
KEEP THIS LIST WITH YOU AT ALL TIMES. Before you choose anything to
eat, consult your list to make sure you are making a healthy choice.
Keep adding to this list until you have eliminated all the unhealthy
foods you like to eat and eating healthfully has become so automatic
that you don't have to think about it anymore.
Always keep a selection of healthy foods and snacks that you like to
eat handy, so that when you just have to have something to eat NOW, you
can make a healthy choice.
Make the transition to healthy eating habits
gradually at a pace you are comfortable with. Remember, this is not a
diet. This is not a program that you will abandon after a few weeks or
months. You are developing eating habits that you want to last your
entire lifetime. Make this a positive experience for yourself.
Make progress every day. Keep a positive attitude.
Give yourself a pat on the back for each step you make in the direction
of developing lifetime healthy eating habits. Make this your healthy eating adventure, exploring
lots of new and different foods. And most importantly, have fun!
If you blow it, don't give up. Take a deep breath.
Remember that you're human. It's not the end of the world. Go back to
your PERSONAL FOOD PLANNER and start all over again. Developing healthy
eating habits should not be a stressful experience. Have fun tasting
lots of new and different healthy foods. Make this a pleasant journey.
Now's the time
to get started on the road to a
healthier you. You can do it!
But... If you're still feeling a lack of
motivation, or a little hesitation, or you would just like a more
peaceful, centered and focused experience of life, try the "power pause." After you
do, you'll want to be
healthy and you WILL
have the motivation to develop healthy eating habits that last a
lifetime. Moreover, it will have a positive impact on your entire life.
