Three Tricks To Healthy Eating

Three Tricks To Healthy Eating

Most of the time, the food that tastes the best and has the most appeal is not always the healthiest. So can people actually train themselves to stop craving junk food and actually want to eat healthier foods? Check out these three simple tricks to help train the taste buds and the mind to choose foods rich in vitamins and minerals, rather than foods that are high in fat and calories. It can work for kids too who can often be the most pickiest of eaters.

Three Tricks To Healthy Eating

Gradually train the brain.

No one has to go cold turkey and simply stop eating the foods that may not be the best. It’s more effective to slowly wean off of junk food by lowering the daily consumption of sugary or salty snacks and fatty foods. In fact, it’s even more effective to do it one bite at a time. By gradually weaning the taste buds from junk food, a retraining of the brain takes place too. Cravings start to back off and the need for sugar diminishes. The brain learns to crave the healthier food once exposed to them.

Try, try again.

Have an open mind when it comes to trying new foods, even the ones that have never been a favorite before ... like vegetables. A good rule is to try something at least twice before deciding its fate. To love something, however, takes a lot of repetition. An acquired taste is truly something that’s acquired. This can also be a good rule for children who by nature stick to only a few favorites. Introduce healthy food and keep bringing it back. Even if it’s not loved at the beginning, over time, things may change.

Choose quality over quantity.

Although it’s much easier to choose a big fast food meal, it’s better to choose what’s healthier. It’s also better to take time to enjoy food and savor the taste, rather than rush through a drive-through and eat on the run. By taking time to eat slower, the body can learn to be more satisfied on not only less food, but healthier food.
