6 Reasons Eating Healthy Is Harder Than You Think – James Heathers, PhD
Eating healthy isn’t always easy. For anyone who has tried to eat better, or has clients hoping improve their eating habits, you known the struggle that can ensue. Whether it’s a busy schedule, over-complicated meal planning, a prominent sweet tooth, feeling exhausted, or falling back into old habits, there are numerous reasons why efforts to eat healthy fall by the wayside.
In our “Best Article of the Week” James Heathers PhD, highlights one of the most restrictive reasons as to why some individuals have difficulty with eating healthy: access. For many individuals, affordability and access to healthy foods is limited. This makes healthy eating not only difficult, but near impossible.
By permitting himself the same healthy food resources that many have, Heathers highlights the specific needs that our clients may face in their pursuit of eating healthy. This helps practitioners provide healthy and achievable recommendations.
Eating healthy isn’t always easy, but making the connection as to why reaching for that apple or salad can sometimes be so difficult is essential. And while it may not make eating healthy necessarily easier, it just may make it more attainable.
