My Journey from Junk to Healthy- A Psychological Transformation

My Journey from Junk to Healthy🌱- A Psychological Transformation.

Junk food

Those were the days when I used to find pleasure in going to cafeteria to binge on pizza and Coke. It was the aromatic therapy of delectable food that secreted satisfying juices and power-nap in the next class in college. Nothing confidential.
Newly acquired freedom to do what I wanted to do and sufficient pocket money, college life was a great relief from disciplined school days. As a science student, I didn’t have sufficient time to chill but once pissed off, the cafeteria seemed to be the best place to pamper myself. My strong headed girl-gang was always a support😉

Carefree days of young age sometimes bring long-lasting habits and tastes to make life comfortable (questionable!) . At that stage we try to find instant pleasure from worldly wonders. I too started preferring junk food to the home-cooked. Health was at its peak and there was no control over senses. Binge eating was the easiest way to find satisfaction from widely spread worldly joys.

We have to pay for the unhealthy habits sooner or later in life. Sedentary lifestyle clubbed with junk food made me lethargic. Studies took a back-seat as health problems began to arise. Even then I didn’t blame junk food, the real culprit.

We are what we eat. The realisation usually comes late in life. I could feel gradual changes in my body. Constant Sleepiness, Slow brain and Unwillingness to move. What was happening to me?

Healthy food

My mother came to the rescue. She was observing everything but wanted me to realize by myself; and I was taking too long!
On my birthday she gifted me a series of Fitness CDs. Accepted with a smile knowing that I won’t be following the training. Time was flying and I was sinking into the deep web of eating disorder. One day my mom sat by me to give me a precious piece of advice.

* If you want to look good and perform better, please take the following points seriously.

* Don’t eat because food is looking great. Eat when you’re really hungry.

* You should know the nutritious value of the food you’re consuming. Eating for eating sake is beastly.

* Take small portion of food in your plate. It will make a significant difference to the amount of calories you consume.

* Keep yourself away from the people who are born only to eat.

* Fix your time to eat.

* No eating when you’re bored or feeling neglected.

* Last but not the least- “You eat to live and not live to eat!”

Transforming yourself physically is not only about changing food habits or increasing physical exercise. It’s more of a psychological transformation. Once you decide to improve yourself, nothing in the world can stop you.

Thanking my mom for the precious advice, I headed towards the prescribed transformation:)
