New Situation New Food Habits

Situation Change

Anytime you move or visit a new place, your food situation changes. That means your food choices change and even some of your habits.

The bread you are used to eating, the special green drink you got from the corner store, or the farm stand specials you got each week are no longer available to you.

What do you do?

Adapt What You Know

This is where the basics of eating and exercising come into play. The things that you can control, regardless of what you are used to doing.

Learning to adapt to your new situation will help you to maintain your health goals.

Also experimenting and letting go of what was can help.

Rely on the Basics

Remember the basics of portion sizes and eating slowly to just full. Basic practices chosen, regardless of the situation or the food available.

What do you do in new situations?

How long did it take you to adjust, or did you not adjust?

Kick off your day with some movement training.
