1. Prepare your own food

It is a healthier option if you prepare your own food since you can control what you will put in your salad or sandwich. Stop eating or getting take-outs from fast food restaurants. You can research for healthy recipes online and make your list so that you can make them yourself.

2. Be Realistic

Stop comparing yourself to others. Some people may have a thin frame but it doesn’t mean that they are healthy.

It may sound as if it has nothing to do with your eating habits. But it can be a big factor. Your social life determines if who you will become. Do not associate yourself with people who are obsessed with their weight or vice versa. It takes balance whether you will be healthy or not depending on the people you’re always with.
