This is an excellent article! Thank you for posting the link. There were a couple of things that really stood out for me and gave me a couple of ideas:
1.) Make a list of foods in my current diet that need to be replaced with a healthier option. While I know I can still have the less nutritious option, it is good to have a "go to" food in mind that I already have programmed in my head to choose instead.
After doing this for a while, I would think that instead of my brain immediately thinking "cookies", my brain would think "pear" instead.
Making this kind of list would also enable me to work on one or two foods at a time instead of changing everything all at once - setting me up for failure.
2.) It's not about "all or nothing," but about making progress. I don't need to be on or off a diet, but I can continuously work on improving my food choices and portion sizes.
