How To Avoid Saying Yes To Super Sizing Meals

Why is it important to avoid saying yes to super sizing meals?  More is not always better.  We are all pretty attuned to getting extra value, but super sizing meals is not really a healthy bargain when it only gives us more fat, sugar and calories.  Sometimes we will take more of something, even if it tastes bad, just because we feel we are getting more for our money.  It takes a mentality change to avoid saying yes to super sizing meals.

Having a mentality change to avoid saying yes to super sizing meals can be a challenge when we get bombarded by advertising that encourages us to eat more and more.  If that wasn’t bad enough, many restaurants have done their research and they know what gets us to eat more even without pushing the value angle.  It’s easy though to offer something free with the bigger meal.  It doesn’t cost them much, but it will cost us a lot over time to our health.

How can you change your mentality to avoid saying yes to super sizing meals?

1.  Make first priority, getting nutritional value

Having a good daily foundation of nutritional intake will allow a now and then junk food meal without causing extra weight gain and harm to your health.  The value is not always in your wallet, but realizing that having a good daily foundation of nutritional intake will save you money also in the long run and sometimes in the short run as well.

2.  It’s okay to say no.

Even in those times when you have the opportunity to get sometime free, you can say no if it is something that you don’t really want or need.  You are not a garbage disposal.  If we get rid of food down the garbage disposal or eat it instead, it is still food you don’t need, only putting it in the garbage disposal won’t hurt you.

3.  You decide how much you want, not someone else

Stick to the portion sizes that are right for you and do your best to stick to that.

4.  Don’t buy it if you don’t want it

Whether eating out or even shopping, don’t buy what you don’t want, even if it sounds like a great deal.  Extra calories, fat or sugar is not a good deal in terms of your health and vitality.  It helps to shift thinking to more than just thinking of good deals in terms of money.  It takes time to shift this mentality, but it is certainly worth the effort.

Why work on these tips to avoid saying yes to super sizing meals?

It could help you feel better, gain less weight especially as you get older and give you more energy to each day.  Focusing on getting consistent daily nutrition can make a huge difference.  Sometimes cleaning out the colon, making sure it is healthy, then eating well, will allow optimum nutritional exchange, which will help you feel better.  I think for most of this, these healthy habits are a lifelong challenge that we work on daily.  We are likely not always to be perfect, but if continued improvement is our goal, it gets better.
