How can I get myself into the right MINDSET for healthy eating/dieting?

The food cravings I can handle – I just need a reason to do it in the first place. BTW I’m not obese, or even overweight. I just want to eat more healthily.

    Sometimes it helps to really set your goals firmly in your mind. Make a list (or other visual aid) of what you hope to gain from healthier eating. Whether that’s more energy, a great swim suit and/or a longer life. It’s personal and you shouldn’t let other people’s opinions influence you. Then put it someplace you’ll see it from time to time.

    Don’t try to do it all at once. That sets you up for failure. Make 2 or 3 changes for the better in your eating that you can handle. Instead of eating dessert every night, limit it to 2 desserts a week. Mix your sugary sodas 1/2 and 1/2 with sugarfree of the same brand and slowly wean yourself off the sugar over time. If you barely eat one veggie a day, increase it to two. You get the idea.

    After a few weeks of that… and once you’re adhering to those goals without having to think about it… much… then it’s time to set 2 or 3 more. Over time, you’ll be living healthier and not feeling deprived.

    Have you seen supersize me? That is a good place to start.

    I agree the mindset is tough, because we are all young and think, well, why am I in such a hurry. But keep in mind our generation has been destroying our bodies from the inside out since we knew what candy was.

    Our parents generation had much less processed foods available to begin with, so although they are at the same risks, their bodies didnt start taking the same pounding till later in their lives.

    Mindset also has to do with knowledge. Find some resources that explain the benefits of a healthier diet. You know more energy, less hungry, less heartburn, more alert, better joints, muscles yada yada yada.

    Also find something that suits your lifestyle, if you dont like to cook, or dont have the time to cook, some diets may not work for you. So do some research and I am sure you will find something that will work for you.
