Binge eating can be considered as one of the most common eating problems that can be found among humans. Thousands of adults are being affected with it per year. When you are bingeing, you are literally out of control. In other words, when you binge eat you are eating a large amount of food within a short period of time, even if you are not feeling hungry. This eventually turns into a habit and will begin to happen more frequently. This can lead to a variety of health issues such as obesity and diabetes in the long run. Therefore, it is a good idea to learn how to stop binge eating.

Here is a list of 5 effective steps that you can follow in order to stop binge eating.

1. Temporary eliminate or reduce cardio

As a binge eater, the first thing you should do is to take a break from cardio. Recent studies have shown that it has been identified that a large number of binge eaters tend to depend on cardio workouts with the objective of lose weight.

Even though cardio workouts don’t always lead you towards binging and hunger, the type of relationship that exists in between them is a complicated one. Therefore, you should take a break from cardio as the first step.

2. Increase your protein and calorie intake

As the second step, you need to increase your protein and calorie intake. Most of the binge eaters tend to cut down their calorie intake in an aggressive manner. In other words, they are leaning on their willpower in order to deal with their hunger.

Habits: How To Break Bad Habits

Our habits make or break us. The difference between someone that gets everything they want out of life and someone that doesn’t comes down to the difference in their day to day habits.

Bad habits such as laziness, procrastination, and negativity can be harmful to success. But the good news is that good habits like positive thinking, tenacity, and healthy eating can feed success.

“Successful People are simply those with successful habits”

– Brian Tracy

In this article, I will show you how to replace bad habits with good ones and also show you three things you should avoid doing when in the process of trying to change them.

How To Replace Bad Habits With Good Habits

A habit is a way of doing something that has been developed overtime. Many times your habits begin and develop during youth.

These habits are deeply ingrained in your mind, whether good or bad, and therefore will take a bit of persistence to change, but it is definitely possible to do. The key to breaking them is to start a new habit and continue doing it for a long enough time until you reach a point that you no longer have to think about it.

Warning: Trying to change a bad habit may suck for a while!

When you have a habit you want to change your body and mind are going to give you a high level resistance. Your body is programmed to adapt to routines, good or bad, and hates breaking them even if it means better health or positive change. If you want to stop eating unhealthy foods it will seem like torture when you have to eat a salad instead of a cheeseburger. But no need to worry, eventually your tastebuds will adapt and you will be loving salad and natural flavors in no time.

The key is to overcome the initial resistance phase for the first 30 days. If you can bare and overcome the temptation past the first month you won’t struggle anymore and the habit will become second nature.

Things To Avoid When Breaking Habits

1. Giving Into Temptation – You will feel tempted to revert back to your old ways. You’ll want to skip that workout or eat the junk food. Whatever you do, don’t give in! Understand that there will always be temptation, but just see it for it is and keep in mind that your desired results in the long run are what is more important than indulging in the more comfortable and temporary pleasure.

2. Giving Up Too Early – many people give up before they even give themselves a significant chance to change their habit. They figure it is too difficult and therefore it can’t be done. Sadly, most of the time, if they would have just persisted for another few days or weeks, they would have succeeded but they gave up too early. Never give up, breaking habits can be tough but it just requires some patience and will power.

3. Thinking The Painful Phase Will Never Stop – Breaking bad habits is no easy feat, but it is certainly possible. When someone stops using drugs they go through withdrawal. The same concept applies to breaking any bad habits you may have – you will go through a withdrawal phase. It will be painful at the start but when you start seeing results and reaping the benefits of having a better habit in your life, the temporary pain you had to suffer will soon turn in to a newfound joy and you will be proud of yourself.

Conclusion

Breaking bad habits can be tough but it is , believe in yourself. Successful people practice good habits and are always working to eliminate the bad ones from their lives. This is how you grow, this is how anybody grows. You have to constantly be changing and adapting newer and better ways of doing things in to your daily routine in order to be successful. Just never give up when pain arises or you find yourself up against some resistance. There is light at the end of the tunnel and always keep the long term perspective in mind.
