Fight Temptation with 10 Affirmations to Help You Make Healthy Diet & Lifestyle Choices

With the help of positive affirmations, you can re-train your brain
to replace the desire for junk food with healthy choices

Let’s face it.

When we are trying to watch what we eat and drink, temptation is absolutely everywhere.

When everyone around us at the office is indulging in pizza, burgers, fries, and sugary drinks,
it’s awfully tempting to join in, isn’t it?

When we have “convenience” food bombarding us from every direction, it can be very difficult
to choose options that give our bodies the nourishment it needs.

You don’t need me to tell you that fatty and sugary choices are not the kinds of food that your body
needs –you need to tell yourself!

And if you are raw, vegetarian or vegan, the temptation to eat your old comfort foods can sometimes
be hard to bear.

But what if you could stop that temptation in its tracks and actually choose to make a healthy choice?

This is a Job for Anti Temptation Tools

Fight Temptation with 10 Affirmations to Help You Make Healthy Diet & Lifestyle Choices

Sure, it can be hard in moments of temptation to make the right choice, but with the help of positive
affirmations, you can re-train your brain to replace the desire for junk food with healthy choices.

“Affirmations can help you stick to your diet,

say no to temptation, and eat nourishing

and satisfying foods.

How?

By replacing the negative spiral of thoughts in

your mind with powerful, positive ones.”

Think about it.

If you have daily reminders and effective tools at your disposal, you just may find that
eating the right foods and feeding your body the best fuels becomes a whole lot easier.

But first you have to believe that it is possible to gain control over your thirsts, desires,
and cravings.

The most important step in making a lasting change in your life is to make the commitment
to success.

Are you committed?

Do you believe that you can overcome your cravings?

Once you’ve set your commitment in stone, you’re ready to learn the top 10 affirmations to get you
through moments of weakness.

“Before reading the list below, 

you should know that 

affirmations are most successful

when you internalize the saying

and repeat it frequently. “

Whether you’re having a good day or a bad one, you need to constantly repeat these positive
statements in your mind.

Temptation will strike when you least expect it, so it’s better to be prepared!

Are you ready?

Get set to repeat these empowering  food and fitness affirmations throughout
the day.

10 Healthy Lifestyle Affirmations

Fight Temptation with 10 Affirmations to Help You Make Healthy Diet & Lifestyle Choices

Use positive affirmations to replace unhealthy cravings,
temptations and thoughts with powerful, more positive ones.

1. I can neutralize bad habits with good food, exercise,

and healthy living.


2. I am proud to reach out to my support network instead of 

leaning on food for comfort.


3. I am losing weight for me because I love me.


4. I set aside time just for me.


5. My good health and productivity are the rewards for

the nourishing foods I eat.


6. Weight gain happens over time, so my weight loss equally

requires time, patience, and lifestyle changes.


7. I use self-care, not self-control.


8. The more I take care of myself, the better I feel.


9. I am firmly committed to staying active and healthy.


10. I deserve a healthy body and mind.

When you look at these food and nutrition affirmations, they may seem like ideals–
behaviors and thoughts that you only wish you could have–but each time you
reaffirm t
hem by saying them aloud, you’re slowly changing your mindset.
Over time, these ideals will become a reality through your thoughts and actions.

But remember, you must first believe you can change.

Once you make the commitment to your success, you will change your attitudes about
food and you’ll be thankful you did!

Of course, there will always be temptation, but when you equip yourself with
anti-temptation 
tools, you ‘ll be better equpped to quickly re-focus your mind
on your greater goal of getting and staying healthy.

Love this. I’m learning that the power of the MIND and our thoughts is – often – even more important than eating the “cleanest,” healthiest diet on the planet! If we don’t have the right mindset, we won’t be able to digest and assimilate our food properly.

I’ve been reading “Happy Belly,” and I love using her affirmation: “My digestion is strong and healthy.” It makes me feel very grounded.

Love this post Deborah! It’s just what I need right now. I’m finding myself backsliding a bit from healthy eating, feeling physically, mentally & emotionally crappy from it and then eat more junk to “feel better” (which doesn’t work!!) and it’s a big cycle. I love these affirmations and will start to use them. This is giving me a nice kick in the right direction =)
“6. Weight gain happens over time, so my weight loss equally
requires time, patience, and lifestyle changes.
”
This one is my favourite =)

My own affirmation is: “You want it now, but you’ll regret it later. Think long term!”
