We’re all guilty of it. You know, giving into those tempting treats and grabbing a meal on the go, leaving our bodies paying the consequences. Here at HQ we try our best to combat these habits, though they always seem to find a way of creeping up on us. Today we’re going to discuss some of the most common unhealthy eating habits, and how we can set ourselves up for success by kicking them to the curb - read on with us!
1. Mindless Eating
We’ve all been there, sitting in front of the TV or scrolling through Tik Tok, suddenly realizing that bag of chips you were only going to have a few of is empty. Mindless eating is hard to avoid but we’ve got a few tips up our sleeves to help! First off, be sure you’re satisfying your hunger during meal time, this means eating high protein and lower sugar content meals. Our Weight Management shakes hit that nail on the head with 20 grams of plant based protein, and no added sugars that work perfect as a healthy filling meal. Our Appetite Suppressant Lollipops can also do wonders to avoid that mindless snacking, one pop at a time! We recommend 2 pops daily in between meals, when you’re feeling peckish and/or bored.
2. Late Night Snacking
Having trouble sleeping or just a natural nighthawk, finding yourself reaching for those midnight snacks? This habit is an important one to kick in order to avoid those extra lbs - we’re all about ditching those late night snacks! Routines are helpful for so many reasons, one is being able to plan your meal times. Be sure you’re having your dinner at a reasonable hour, we recommend to stop eating by 8pm at the latest. Our Detox Cleanse tea was created to drink in the evenings, this makes the perfect drink to cap off the night, it’s super refreshing and tasty too! Once you’ve finished your cup of Cleanse tea grab that toothbrush and brush away, this will make those late night snacks much less desirable with that minty fresh breath.
3. Skipping Breakfast or Meals
Life gets busy, we totally get it - but your body isn’t so forgiving! Skipping meals, especially the most important meal of the day (breakfast), can cause those lbs to pile up, as your body is storing those calories in anticipation of your next meal. Eating regular meals throughout your day helps to speed up your metabolism and be an overall healthier you. We’ve got the perfect combo to fight those busy mornings with our Weight Management Shakes and Shaker Bottle! Our shakes work as a meal replacement and our Shaker Bottle makes it super easy to grab and take on the go, with storage on the bottom for your shake powder. Just shake it up when you’re ready to drink!
4. Unhealthy Food Choices and Lack of Planning
One of the worst habits we’re all guilty of is the choices we make. It’s way too easy to grab that fast food on the way home, rather than cooking up a full meal after a long day. Meal planning and meal prepping can be a total lifesaver and we’ve got the perfect tool, right in your pocket to help make it a breeze - our Flat Tummy App! Our App provides you with a full workout and meal plan (vegan, vegetarian, Keto, Intermittent fasting, and standard options available), for each meal of the day, 7 days a week, with heaps of variety - and the best part, it’s completely FREE!
