Can you unlearn old behavior? This is an issue you will face when you are trying to lose weight?
When you are trying to lose weight, your old behaviors of eating too much food and eating too many fattening foods are incompatible with your new weight loss plan. Eating the old way will certainly prevent you from having real weight loss success. So you probably say to yourself that you have to stop doing what you’ve been doing and do it differently. While this makes good sense, stopping your old ways isn’t as easy as it sounds.
There is the close association of your old eating behavior with the particular context in which it used to occur, like time of day, a particular place, certain moods, feelings, desires, and interactions with other people. All that needs to happen then is for the right context to be there and cue in your old behavior. Before you know it the old behavior is right where it always was.
Going back to old behavior from time to time like this is colloquially known as diet cheats. You’ll be surprised to learn that it is such now-and-again insertions of old behavior (cheats) that help you more than ever to unlearn your old anti-weight loss behavior of eating too much food and eating too many fattening foods.
