Instead of dieting work on gradually building healthier eating habits. Start gradually consuming less and less of your favorite junk foods, however don’t cut them out of your diet completely.
2. Setup a Supportive Environment. If you can’t stop eating junk food it’s not a good idea to buy lots of it and store it in your house. Let’s say you can’t stop eating potato chips. Having a family sized bag in your kitchen is trouble. Why? Because in a moment of weakness, those potato chips will look so good, and you wont be able to stop yourself from eating half the bag.
Also if you try to completely deprive yourself of potato chips that is also trouble. Because it will just increase your cravings for potato chips. Instead maybe have one or two individual sized bags in your house at a time. That way you can eat potato chips in moderation. And if you ever feel like you can’t stop eating them, you will only go through 2 small bags. Since to get more you’ll have to inconvenience yourself by going to the grocery store, and you’ll probably just forget about it.
3. Take Care of Yourself. Yes be vain, superficial and spend a lot of time taking care of yourself. Take care of your body shape, exercise regularly, go tanning, shop for some brand-name clothing, get a nice massage, or book an expensive vacation. The more you take care of yourself, the more you’ll value your body, and your overall health. If you spend a lot of time taking care of yourself, you’ll usually pass on that junk food when you are tempted to eat it. Why? Because you have invested a lot of time in your looks and health and will not want to throw it all away just to have some stupid junk food.
