how to get in control of eating habits

an idea....

When it comes to getting back in control, you can minimize the damage by consuming
a diet that is VERY high in green vegetables.

But to get to the root of this problem, you might want to make one adjustment, and it can be relatively simple. If you bring daily focus to this simple adjustment,
you will be surprised at your increased ability to make better decisions.

The Adjustment That Is Likely To Help You:

You must focus on the circle of influence versus the circle of concern.

What do I mean by this?

You must focus on what you can control versus
what you cannot control.

When you try to change everything, you get overwhelmed because
your mind actually is an amazing problem solver. Your capable mind, the
thing that solves problems and takes care of things every single day
tries to solve all the problems, including the ones that it has NO

You cannot control the fact that your mother is sick. You cannot
control the fact that your dad didn't treat you the way you wanted to be
treated. You cannot control the fact that you have not made the right
choices to lose the weight you've wanted to lose over the last year, 5
years, maybe even the last decade.

Your brain cannot distinguish between problems you can
control and problems you can't control.

Because your brain is solving problems every day, it tries to solve the situations you can't control as well. Your brain troubleshoots every combination to solve the problem and doesn't stop and it becomes completely exhausted.

great article

This is a great article. Thanks, Jackie! I am a huge problem-solver and I try to solve all of the problems I wonder I feel tired! Thanks for helping me focus on what I can do, not what I can't do.

This article speaks of amazing truths. I never realized what I was doing to myself until someone says. What's great about what you say, Jackie, is that applying this advice doesn't constrict to only eating habits and an active life, but it has to do with other areas of life as well. With doing school work to religious practices to maintaining a relationship. We have to focus on what we can control to be happier human beings.

You are right, we have to focus and struggle on what we can control. Rather than putting the best academic writing service efforts on which is not in our hands. Everybody has to try to control his eating habits. Our bad eating habits lead us to gain so much weight.
