Committing Again to Healthy Eating

Skip Navigation

Getting Started

It's easy to get off track with your plans for healthy eating. But you can think of healthy eating as a work in progress. You'll get better each time you refocus your plan.

To get back on track, try:

Focusing on your reason.

What's your most important reason for wanting to eat healthier?

Asking yourself what's working.

Give yourself credit for healthy things you already do. What helped you succeed?

Asking yourself what's not working.

What eating habits are your biggest challenge? What makes them hard?

Learning from past challenges.

What can you learn from your mistakes or challenges? How can they help you change?

Refreshing your approach.

It's best to make one or two small changes at a time. Maybe you'd like to find a new healthy recipe online. Or try keeping healthy snacks handy.

Taking the next step.

Write down ideas for a new healthy eating habit you'd like to try.
