Habits to Avoid If You Want to Lose Weight

“We become what we repeatedly do.” –Stephen Covey

In the last post, we talked about the bad habit of mindless eating and how to avoid it. In this post, we will talk about two other habits you need to avoid if you want to lose weight. They are:

Habit #2: Regularity of Eating

A common problem in losing or maintaining weight is the false idea that the more frequently you eat, the more you are likely to gain. As a result, many people skip breakfast or other meals as a way to control their weight. They do not realize that this is actually harmful to their weight loss goals for several reasons, including lowered blood sugar and mental justification.
