Your environment is the strongest predictor of what you eat. Therefore, building a successful environment automatically improves your diet. The easiest way to build a successful environment is to “add in” lots of low-calorie, high-nutrition foods. Given our crazy environment, adding in food you can “carry with” helps.
I have a food bag that goes almost everywhere with me. I take it to work and it goes with me on the weekend (in my car). My food bag is a small insulated zipper bag. It usually contains several servings of fruit, a nutrition bar and a variety of other good-for-you snacks.
Having my food bag around helps me to eat less of the high-calorie stuff that is everywhere these days. Start building your own successful environment by adding more healthy foods to your home, work and other environments – it will make cutting calories and losing weight much more automatic.
