What are bad eating habits?

How we r eating now!

Large_sinuses
Some of the worst damage we do do ourselves we do with our diets. Eating large quantities of fast, highly processed foods instead of freshly prepaired meals, using chips,cookies,snacks to fill up as opposed to fruits & veggies. Eating late at nite is another biggie. Just not taking the time to eat the things our gobies were designed to eat is the worst " bad eating habit" we have!

Dr. Robert Kwok answered:

What are good eating habits?

Think before eating

Cigarette_smoking
Good eating habits come from thinking about the foods & drinks before eating them. At the 3 main meals each day, think about what to select and how much to put on the plate. For snacks, think about what would be a healthier snack. One should avoid overeating at social gatherings (such as restaurants), avoid eating to relieve stress or sadness, and avoid eating while watching TV or on the computer.

Dr. Marc F. Hirsch answered:

How are habits best broken ?

Service

78163698
Bad habits are best broken with equivalent good habits. A spiritual context, like God or nature, helps also. Positive thinking and service of some kind to others are ways of taking attention off yourself and occupying you with socially redeeming activity. Behavior you have associated with the "bad" habit is best avoided if possible. Exercise and diet are other positive endeavors that help.

Why is tobacco habit forming?

Nicotine

Most of tobacco dependency happens because nicotine is a dependency-producing chemical, causing tolerance (the same amount does less) and withdrawal when stopped. It is also habit-forming because someone smoking 20 cigarettes a day is taking over 400 puffs per day - 400 "fixes" of nicotine. Anything done that regularly, that often, is reinforcing psychologically, as well as physically.

How can I change my bad habits?

Change Is Possible

57305710
If one's habits lead to unwanted behaviors, the best way to handle this is to replace the "bad" habit with a "good" habit. Closely watch your behavior and reward yourself when you successfully demonstrate the desired behavior. If you make a mistake and see the negative behavior, ignore it and move on. Do not reward the negative behavior by making a big deal over it. Good luck - change is possible.
