How Have Your Eating Habits Changed?

No one goes from being a couch potato to a marathon runner in a day. Nor does someone go from eating junk food for every meal, to embracing healthy eating. It’s a long process and one I’m sure I will be constantly improving and adjusting throughout the rest of my life.

My Journey

I was a vegetarian eating too many carbohydrates and sugar. I stopped eating dairy and eggs completely. I started eating dairy, if it was in cakes or desserts. I started making pea protein smoothies for breakfast. I stopped eating diary and sugar completely, no honey and only low sugar fruits like berries.  I started to eat more salads, vegetables and raw foods. I started juicing. I began to eat a few more fruits…

I went from eating this

To drinking this..Lemon, silver beet, brussel sprouts and pineapple juice

I’m sure my eating habits will continue to change depending on where I am in my life. I stopped eating almost all sugar when I did the Sarah Wilson I Quit Sugar program but recently I have started to include a few more fruits into my diet. This works well for me, for now. Currently I am really into salads (I assure you they’re not boring!) but as winter comes maybe I will want something else? Soups perhaps.

This post was spurred on from listening to Rory Freedman speak at The Food Revolution Summit. She gave up eating meat and chicken and then a year later she gave up fish. 10 years later she stopped eating dairy. I think it’s important to remember that we don’t have to go from zero to hero over night, that we can make a change now and once we have adjusted move on to the next.

Do you drink soft drinks? Start drinking them less with the aim to cut them out completely. Do you eat a lot of meat? Considering doing Meat Free Mondays. Can’t bear the thought of giving up dairy? Find good ice cream, milk and cheese substitutes and when your eating out give yourself some allowances in the beginning.

If you feel like you are being deprived or missing out, your eating habits are not going to work long term. You need to create healthy habits which you find fulfilling. If you are taking something out of your diet, replace it with something better. In the beginning, sure you might miss some of your old foods, but give it a month and I assure you, you will have forgotten all about them.

So over to you…

Questions: How has your eating habits changed? How long did it take you to change? And most importantly, how do you feel now? xox
