We’re about a week into the Healthy Eating Habit module, and you now have some data you didn’t have at the beginning. Let’s take a look at what we can learn from it.

Here are some common outcomes, and what I recommend for each:

If you’re an advanced healthy eater, I’d like to make a suggestion: try eating for purely non-emotional reasons. Don’t eat because you feel like it, because you’re stressed or bored or in a social situation. Make a plan of what to eat, and just eat according to the plan. This cuts out any emotional ties from eating. This requires an advanced degree of mindfulness, and also a flexible mind, because there will likely be days when you mess up, and you need to be able to flow with that instead of feeling bad about it.
