Combine diet changes with exercise
You may have heard this advice that you should not make many changes in your life at the same time to improve your health. In general, this advice is correct. But research has shown that combining nutritional changes with exercise increases the likelihood of the diet being effective.
In this field, a study has been conducted on 200 people. The participants were divided into three groups. The first group started exercising at the same time as changing their diet. The second group only changed their diet. The third group started exercising some time after changing their diet. The result of this study showed that the first group continued their diet more easily and better.
Plan your meals before going to a restaurant
If you want to eat out, it becomes more difficult to stick to a healthy diet. Fortunately, there are ways to make this easier. It is better to plan what to eat before going to a restaurant. Otherwise, you may overeat in the restaurant.
Don’t let travel ruin your diet
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle becomes more difficult when you are away from home traveling for work or pleasure. Here are some tips on nutrition while traveling:

Take some healthy non-perishable food with you.

Mindful eating is a good way to follow a healthy lifestyle. Take time to enjoy your food and appreciate it. With this method, your chances of making successful lifestyle changes will increase.

Binge eating disorder is a type of eating disorder that causes a person to eat uncontrollably in certain periods of time. Another study on women with binge eating disorder found that mindful eating reduced their binge eating time from 4 weeks to 1.5 weeks and reduced the severity of their binge eating during this time. These results were achieved only 6 weeks after starting mindful eating.
