I’m Trying to Eat Better While Stuck At Home

by Neighborhood Trainers Finding a trainer is a personal choice

When the pandemic first hit, people around the world were told to stay in their homes. Businesses shut down, some permanently and some temporarily, and people spent more time than they ever had indoors. With so much time, it’s inevitable that weight gain occurs as people eat more often simply due to the fact that they’re home.

I fell into this same trap, eating throughout the day and constantly heading to the kitchen to find something to munch on. Since I had never stayed home for so long, it took a while for me to get into the groove of things and make changes to my diet to better my health.

It’s easy to let your pandemic diet get out of control, but let’s get into how I started eating better while being stuck at home and how you can, too.

Set a Routine

Setting a routine is easy, but the key is to stick to a routine once you have set it. In order to be successful in this, you should start out with small changes in your routine, such as setting a time to eat lunch and avoiding eating in your work area or in front of a television or screen. Once you’ve gotten started, your routine will become standard and help you maintain healthy eating habits.

Focus on Nutrition

One tip a Nutritionist Brooklyn professional gave me was to focus on the nutritional value of food instead of how many calories it contains. Keep foods in the home that are highly nutritious, such as fruits and vegetables, and reduce the amount of foods in the home with little or no nutritional value, such as junk food.

Remove Temptation

A tip given to me by a Mamaroneck personal trainer is to get rid of temptation in the home, reducing the amount of times you may fall off the wagon or indulge in junk foods. If you do have unhealthy foods in the home, keep them out of your view by storing them in an area that you do not look in often so that they are out of sight and out of mind.

Using these three tips will help you get on the path towards healthier eating. These simple changes can spark big results, so get started on making healthy changes in your life and getting your nutrition to an entirely new level during the pandemic by setting a routine and sticking to it, focusing on nutrition, and removing temptation.
