Why changing eating habits is so hard?

Weight loss is a huge business. Chronic dieting that can lead to eating disorders are affecting millions of people. The psychology of eating is a complex issue because there are so many angles that influence our eating patterns.

First, you need to understand that there are no shortcuts, hacks, or silver bullets to weight loss. Our bodies work as they have functioned for thousands of years.

Almost all diets work if you follow them as advised, but the problem arises when they end. Therefore the only way to change eating habits permanently is to find the things and tasks that suit you. What do you like? What you are able to do long-term? What you love to eat that is healthy?

The effort to change eating patterns fails for the same reasons as any other habit change: Running out of self-discipline, forgetting, lack of support.

Below are some challenges you might face when you begin changing your diet.

Be aware of the feelings and thoughts, which are totally normal. You need to find a way to cope with these situations that suit you.

Start slowly and let your body get used to the new eating pattern. After a month, your body has used to the change and you can introduce yet another small daily change to your life.

Another important notion is to be prepared. That is what psychologists and dietarians do: They coach the client to cope with challenging situations. Tough moments will come, so are you ready to handle those?

Put it into perspective. Long-term lifestyle changes mean that one setback does not break a habit. Still, try to find a way to cope with challenging situations.
