This episode of Glow Chef Radio focuses on habits and their role in determining what we eat in a day.
Glow Chef Radio – Episode 3
The main takeaway for you is that you can decide how and what you eat and you can introduce new eating habits to achieve your goals.
Choice vs habits
One comment I hear quite frequently about food and healthy eating is something like “oh, I eat what I feel like at the moment; I don’t like to deprive myself!”…
I have news for you: the truth is most of the time we eat what is available to us the moment we feel hungry. Whether breakfast at the corner cafe on the way to work, lunch at the office cafeteria, snacks at our desk… even dinner at home.
Therefore, availability is one large determinant of our meals – if lucky, we get to choose from a very limited set of options.
And, I actually believe that we trick ourselves into thinking we are making these choices as a way of coping with the demands of daily life, as escapism.
40% of daily decisions are a product of habit!
I read recently – unfortunately, I can’t remember where – that over 40% of the decisions we make in a day are not decisions at all; they are just the product of habit. If this is true then what we think is our free will is actually just routine.
Note: I remembered! I got this stat right here.
So, why is this relevant for healthy eating?
On the one hand, by eating this way we are harming ourselves mindlessly, giving the lack of nutritional quality of the food available at most of these outlets.
However, on the other hand, this is good news!
It means that if we take the time to think and decide how and what we want to eat, then we’ll be able to change our habits and manipulate the availability of the type of food we want to eat. And, therefore we’ll be able to achieve our goals.
