Each and every day you have to make a ton of decision. When to wake up, what to wear, what to have for breakfast, what to have for lunch, etc. These decisions often becomes habits. You have the same breakfast as you’ve had the last few months or even years, you have a few favorite meals to choose from, and so on.
The thing is that every time you consider an unhealthy alternative, you lose some willpower. If you face several tempting decisions every day, you’ll run out of willpower at the end of the day and probably make a bad decision.
The simple solution is to remove bad alternatives. Instead of considering five different sodas and water at every meal, you make the decision to only drink healthy water. By doing so, you’ll never lose willpower. You’ll never start to think “just today”. You always drink water – end of story.
In the end, it all comes down to what kind of person you want to be. Do you want to live healthy and turn good food into a habit or do you want to make every day a struggle with a ton of decisions where you may end up with the wrong one.
