I used to think that if I ate healthy, I would get into the habit of eating healthy and it would "become second nature." But now I think it isn't the healthy eating that becomes second nature. It is the vigilance, creating healthy opportunities, insisting on healthy options, bringing your own snacks and lunch to work, modifying orders in restaurants, etc. that becomes second nature. What becomes second nature is putting your health first and doing what it takes to maximize it.
Taking half of your meal home is a great weight loss tip. But don't think of it as eating half as much -- think of it as getting 2 yummy meals for the price of 1! This works for eating in as well as eating out!
