Summary

Tired of traditional diets that leave you feeling frustrated and stuck? Ready to embrace a new perspective on your nutrition? Keep reading...

When you hear the word diet, what comes to mind?

Your thoughts probably jump to the latest fad that celebrities are raving about or your own experiences with diets that felt restrictive and unrealistic. But at its core, a diet is very different from dieting. One encompasses the foods that you eat, while the other tries to control those foods.

For most people, nutrition is a bit of a mystery. With hundreds of sources of information that often conflict with one another, it can be totally overwhelming to even know where to begin.

You might have been led to believe that to truly understand your nutrition, you need to work with expensive dieticians or personal trainers - but this couldn't be further from the truth.

The reality is that anyone, including you, can start to make changes in diet that will immediately start having positive effects both mentally and physically.

But how do you do that?

By understanding your dietary habits and the tendencies you have around food, you'll discover exactly how much your subconscious is impacting your health and wellness.

Once you recognize the power of your thoughts and mindset, you can harness that power to start creating real, lasting change in your life.

In Breaking Bad Eating Habits, here is just a fraction of what you will discover:

  • Practical advice for managing mindset, stress, and attitude while developing a healthier, more sustainable lifestyle
  • How nutrition affects your development even before birth - and why childhood influences are so powerful
  • Eight principles that form the basis of mindfulness with a six-step process to help you become a more mindful eater
  • Tips and tricks for adapting meals and recipes to immediately start improving your nutrition
  • And much more

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Good for Bad Eating Habits

I do know I have bad habits around food and this book is helping me to understand why I eat the way I do. Surprisingly, although I thought I knew a lot about dieting and my diet I have learnt what a big part your subconscious has to play in your daily choices. I have seen a difference in a short time and I’m not dieting any more but making good choices with a different mindset, great! So many great tips and tricks too all new to me and really make a difference.

Such a great reset for the mind!

I absolutely love how the author has brought mindset, childhood, and subconscious factors along with science into this well-thought-out book. There is more to breaking habits than just information. Addressing how important the emotional factors are is key for true and sustainable change. Definitely recommend it for those ready to make a change!

Your Higher Power is Within You

This book was just what I needed to finally stop binge eating... After being overweight all my life, I'd finally found an eating plan that suited my lifestyle and preventative health goals, and I found it in intermittent fasting. The only issue? I'd have the huge urge to overeat and binge on my eating days, even when I no longer felt hungry, to the point of making myself sick and having to wait hours before going to bed because of heartburn from all the compulsive eating. I'm all about self love, but there is no way I can love the impulses that sabotaged all my efforts and made me misserable. Ever since I listen the book, I just felt so in control, and after the first day trying Nick's tips, I enjoyed my food thoroughly and did not overeat at all. Being in control has given me such a confidence boost that the impulses I might feel around a certain food are no longer dictating my life. I will be forever thankful for finding this book and all the resources along with it.

Fantastic book!

This great book was obviously very well researched, as it dives deeply into the science of nutrition and how our bodies work. The author explains these processes in a very simple, easy to follow way. It was great to learn and understand these in order to take some positive action towards changing eating habits.
I am guessing many of us are stuck in bad routines, which we accept as a norm. I definitely was... What we don’t realise, is that we are in control.
Change can be hard, but it’s possible and definitely achievable. Small steps, small changes, they all add up and will ultimately lead to great results.
This book will help you do just that!

More than what I expected.

This book offers a lot more than what the title suggests. It's packed with useful tips and wise advice for developing good eating habits. I often find it difficult to resist things like chocolate, especially when I am stressed and this book has helped me to understand the root of the problem and identify it so I can begin setting new habits.

It has offered practical solutions for me to start using right away and I feel confident that I am on the right path to improving myself.

The author does a fantastic job of discussing how we get harmful habits and how to break them and replace them with healthy ones.

Great motivation!

This audiobook is excellent for a young individual who wants to get encouragement for changing the habit of eating. As a certified nutrition consultant, specializing in blood sugar stabilization and a certified personal trainer, I read the research, nutrition, and science publications more than most people. I can see some of the information here needs to update and corrected. For example, the author recommended having a whey protein powder for breakfast, as a reason for fast digestion, but in the meantime, the author discusses blood glucose and insulin that can cause a rise in blood sugar. Many research has shown whey protein causes an increase in insulin and causes blood sugar spikes. One research mentioned that whey protein causes blood sugar spikes more than a piece of white bread. When you want to prevent a blood sugar spike, you don’t want a protein or food that has fast digestion unless you just finish a heavy lifting session. In this case, you get a good hack from this window of opportunity. Also, too much protein eating in a meal can spike blood sugar, most people do not know about this, and in this case, also the author.

As I mentioned, it’s good for young people but not for people who are over 40. I’m almost 50 myself and work with clients in their 40s, 50s, and 60s and I speak instead of people over 40,

The audiobook overall showed breaking bad eating habits can help young people to get into healthy habits and they will enter their 40s with no health problems or less health problems. I love that it's motivated with the right attitude for helping more people to have a positive habit change.

I was wrong!

Before listening to this audiobook, I was so wrong about my eating habits. I was dieting all the time and came to find out that I don't have to be in a diet my whole life but just make a few adjustments. By following all these strategies, I could keep my healthy weight and still have energy to enjoy my family and the important things. I love the chapter about mindfulness. Wow i wasn't aware that by practicing mindfulness I could change my habits. The author did a great job with details and steps to follow.

Comprehensive!

I love how this book covers all aspects of eating - including the emotions behind overeating. There are detailed explanations about how your body chemistry works, suggested changes and even recipes. I'll probably listen to this several times to get every detail. Great book!

Not your typical diet book

This isn’t a typical diet book, but a book that will help improve your lifestyle overall and sustain it. The information provided I found interesting which kept me engaged and wanting to hear more! This book will help many people not fail at a fad diet or become heavier due to binge eating
