Snacking, overeating, getting stressed – these are just a few bad habits that perfectly describe 2020 for many of us. While we may have managed to keep these guilty pleasures under control in the past, pandemic stress and lockdown have definitely messed up our schedule.
However, it’s never too late to make a change and improve your lifestyle. In the end, it might even uplift your mood!
The first step towards being a better you is to acknowledge your bad habits and bring solutions. And that’s where we step in.
Today, we’ll have a look at 5 habits that can seriously mess up your physical (and mental!) health plus tips to cut them off for good.
Eating breakfast when you’re not hungry
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day – or at least that’s the advice we’ve always got from specialists. It’s thought that eating breakfast reduces your appetite throughout the day and might reduce the risk of unhealthy snacking.
But is it really true?
A recent studies review published in BMJ proved that eating breakfast may not even help you lose weight after all. Many researchers even advise dietitians to take caution before telling their patients to eat breakfast every single day since it can have the exact opposite effect.
Meanwhile, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics strongly recommends breakfast to everyone looking to shed unwanted pounds in a healthy way. So what is the right way?
Captain’s Solution: Listen to your body. If you’re hungry, eat; if you’re not, fast. There’s a reason why intermittent fasting has become so popular lately – it works. Studies from the Scientific Reports show that not eating for a certain period of time can boost your metabolism, which is essential in the weight loss process.
