Good habits that can translate into lifelong healthy behaviors:

  • Start each day with a nutritious breakfast.
  • Exercise at least 30 minutes a day.
  • Get 8 hours of sleep each night, as fatigue can lead to overeating.
  • Eat your meals seated at a table.
  • Eat more meals with your partner or family.
  • Learn to eat when you’re hungry and stop when you’re comfortably full.
  • Reduce your portion sizes by 20%, or give up second helpings.
  • Eat five servings of fruits and vegetables each day.
  • Eat meals or snack every few hours, never go more than 4 hours between meals other than at night.
  • Experiment with new lighter recipes and healthy cooking methods, such as grilling, roasting, baking or poaching.
  • Drink more water and fewer sweetened beverages.
  • Buy less processed foods, sweets and treats.

Set yourself up for success by only attempting to change one bad habit at a time.
