Just like a smoker faces a possible future of emphysema and lung cancer, if you neglect healthy eating habits you not only face a possible future of being overweight or obese, you also run the risk of depression, heart disease, diabetes, cancer, bowel complications and much more.

The choices you make each day – from what to eat for breakfast to whether or not to have that extra slice of pie – affect how you feel and how you perform, which as you may be able to guess, affects everything you do. Choose wisely, and you will soon find that feeding your body well translates into a longer, healthier, more enjoyable life.

Once you decide that learning healthy eating habits is worthwhile for you, it’s time to make some changes to your diet. Challenge yourself to come up with some new healthy eating habits every day and put them to good use, like drinking more water or using mustard on your sandwiches instead of mayo. Instead of trying to cut out all the “bad” foods you currently eat, like any processed foods, sweets, soda, candy, and other junk food, it’s much easier and safer to start by adding more healthy foods to your diet, such as fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean meats, low-fat dairy products, nuts, and legumes.

This way, you will slowly be replacing your bad diet with a good diet and won’t be left with a huge, gaping void where your bad foods once were. As you start filling up on healthier foods, you’ll have an easier time letting go of some of your most coveted unhealthy foods.
