How to Trick Yourself into Eating Healthy
#1. Eat before you go out so you aren't starving later.
#2. Sample your faves instead of pigging out.
#3. Split dessert with a friend or lover.
But I also want to share a few reverse psychology tricks that will help you eat healthier.
If you go through a long period of eating healthy foods you will start to want the junk food simply because you want a break and want something sweet. Part of it is simply wanting something that you can't have because it is Forbidden Fruit.
There are three solutions to the dealing forbidden sweets and junk food however:
1. Eat junk food more often.
This really seems counter-intuitive but this strategy works for a lot of people because indulging regularly takes away the need to gorge on a grand scale when your willpower completely collapses. And after enough time goes by, where you're fighting between a controlled and crazy appetite, something has to give. It's usually willpower. So what you do is have small amounts, small measured amounts, just to take the edge off.
2. Don't think of it as junk food.
Another tip is to stop thinking about food as good and bad. People always want what they can't have. Although it would be a stretch to ever try to convince yourself that celery sticks are the new chocolate bars it's easy to pull some reverse psychology on your psyche and convince your brain that the chocolate is not all that it's cracked up to be and opting for the real food is just as satisfying, if not more.
You're at a party/holiday gathering to be with your friends and family so do just that. The food isn't the main reason why you're visiting. Catch up on stories, reminisce about the past and enjoy the company of loved ones that you don't normally see all in the same room at once. If you forget the food is there then it is time well spent.
Use these tips to change the way you think about eating and keep your balanced diet on track!
