Making a lifestyle change is no easy feat. There is no switch to flip that makes you stop loving the donuts or rich fettuccine or fried fish you’ve loved since childhood. Those foods induce a satiating feeling, and the only way you can get that feeling is to actually eat the food. That’s a tough connection to break. But let’s dig a little deeper into this. If you know that the foods you enjoy so much are slowly shortening your life, does it make sense to still eat them? Is obtaining that feeling worth the ultimate outcome?
As you delve into your healthy lifestyle journey and experience the inevitable setbacks and temptation, think about those two questions before you make a choice that takes you of course. With determination, you can make a healthier lifestyle your reality.
No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. — 1 Corinthians 10:13
