Stay away from these bad eating habits to get on
the fast track to a healthier life, leaner body, and more
satisfying eating experience:
SKIPPING BREAKFAST :
As far as ideas go, skipping breakfast is a pretty bad one. Not
only does starting the day with a healthy breakfast give you a
boost of energy and help clear the fog out of your brain, it also
helps you make healthy eating choices throughout the entire day.
EATING BEFORE BED :
If youíre seeking sweet dreams, avoid eating before bedtime.
Eating fatty foods before bed will slow down the emptying of the
stomach, exacerbating indigestion, while spicy foods can lead to
heartburn and indigestion.
Unfortunately food binges usually come in the form of fatty snack
foods like chips, pizza or cookies. Gorging yourself on said foods
will likely lead to weight gain, dissatisfaction, and a feeling
that you lack discipline.
STARVING YOURSELF :

starvation is weight gain via the storage of fat. Well, when you
donít eat for long periods of time, your body thinks it needs to
store calories as fat because it doesnít know when the chance to
eat will come again. And then, the fat remains with you.
EATING WHILE WORKING :
Not only is eating while doing something else a great way to get
food all over yourself, it also tends to lead to overeating, and
subsequently, weight gain. Plus, once you begin eating while doing
something else, you often canít stop it and becomes a mechanical
EATING TOO FAST :
Start slowing things down at your next meal because eating too
quickly isnít doing you favours. Hoovering in your food at warp
speed will not only make you look like you just walked out of the
Neolithic ages, it also encourages weight gain.
NOT DRINKING ENOUGH WATER :
Itís no secret that water is necessary for the optimal functioning
of all life forms, humans included. Whatís surprising is that not
drinking adequate amounts of water throughout the day can actually
slow down your metabolism, making weight gain a likely
possibility, since water is necessary for all metabolic functions,
including calorie burning.
