- Skipping lunch
- 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.________________________________________________________________________
