If you’ve found yourself gorging on sugary foods, salty snacks, and alcohol recently, you’re not alone. More than a year into the global pandemic, researchers are finding that adults have put on unwanted weight at an unprecedented rate.
Whether you’re dieting for weight loss or simply trying to roll back bad eating habits, it’s critical to remember that mistakes and setbacks are a normal part of the process.
Stress tends to make us eat more and exercise less. Reframing our challenges is fundamental to maintaining a sustainable diet. Problems and complications are to be expected, so you should never let yourself feel like a failure for experiencing them. Instead, stay positive, pick yourself up, and move forward.
Adjusting your beliefs and perceptions will help determine the course of your diet. Perfectionism is not a reasonable goal. Adjust your outlook with our Instaread on Eat Smarter.
