- Do your best to plan out your meals for the week and prepare as much as possible, so you can whip up a healthy family sized meal in the time it would take to go out and get some fast food. It might sound like a daunting task, but spending 15 minutes on weekends creating a meal plan is the best thing you can do. It will eventually become part of your routine.
- Replace instead of restrict. Keep a large supply of healthy fruits. Be sure that your healthy options are visible. You’re much more likely to grab a snack that’s already out rather than go to the cupboard and grab something. Find fruits and vegetables with strong flavor.
- Proper portioning. Food portions in United States are much larger than they need to be. By slowly working your way back to an appropriate size — think only one piece of chicken and a helping of steamed vegetables instead of two or three — your body can adjust gradually to the newer and healthier eating patterns.
- Support. It’s best when a family unit eats healthy together, but that can sometimes be impractical. If not everyone can partake, it’s important that they are still supportive. Engage the whole family when making your weekly grocery and meal list so that everyone has a say in what they’re eating. Having everyone making decisions will vary the meals you’re having, reducing boredom and repetition.
