a record of all your bad eating habits, such as:
Buying a bar of chocolate every day
Eating toast, butter and marmalade all evening
Eating too much fat cheese
Eating while working at the sink instead of sitting down at the dining table.
Vomiting almost every evening
Select the bad habit which you think will be
the easiest to correct and concentrate all you can on improving this habit first.
When you have successfully managed to introduce a better habit, e.g.,
to eat a plate of salad for lunch every day, you can then begin to remove the
next bad habit, and so on.
Through all this time, you can count on feeling
sad and irritated. The eating monster inside you will insist on continuing with
the bad habit. It will be necessary for you to be as persistent as somebody who
has decided to stop smoking. Finally, in time you will get accustomed to it and
experience the new habit as obvious and natural. Plus, you will feel good about
yourself for having overcome a bad and unnecessary habit.
