When you are out of routine you can find yourself eating differently.
Think about when you are on holiday.…. likely you may be more relaxed about what you eat and drink and end up consuming more. Who’s watching anyway?
Most of us can get away with these behaviours for a holiday period, but most of us are glad to get back to normal. A month into lockdown and you might be seeing some unwanted gains which may be visible or leave you feeling miserable. Is the fatigue, unstable energy levels or a lack of concentration that you are feeling related to your diet?
Are you frustrated with how this is impacting on your mood and how you feel day to day.
It can be difficult when you’re mindful of money and have a family to feed. You may be padding meals out with additional carbs or grabbing what’s on offer or easy to store. Likely you’ve had to adapt your shopping habits, perhaps someone else is doing your shop for you? All of these things can limit and impact your food choices.
Losing a sense of control can impact on your motivation and decision making. You are grateful for what you can get your hands on. You can’t be fussy- pasta has never been so desired…
Yet, getting into a better mindset in terms of food will help you establish better habits. You can feel more empowered, recognise emotional eating habits, feel healthier, and get back in control.
Planning and recording what you eat can help you to stay committed to healthier eating patterns and keeping a simple food diary will support you to stay accountable. You can gain a sense of achievement from sticking to it whilst feeling healthier and more positive about getting back on track. These actions of self care are likely to influence to other positive health behaviours.
Do you need more help with improving your food mindset and breaking long term habits which have been preventing you from reaching your goals?
