Make your home junk food free to succeed

There’s a saying by Yogananda that “environment is stronger than willpower.” This means that instead of fighting your environment with willpower, use your willpower to set up an environment that helps you lose weight.

First, remove all junk food from your home if possible. You should then replace these foods with healthier snacks and healthy meals you’ve prepared in bulk so you always have good food ready in a pinch.

The second thing to do is be careful with whom you spend your time around. Oftentimes the thing that sabotages someone isn’t a dessert, it’s the negative influence of peers. While family, friends, and co-workers may have your best interest at heart, it’s a natural part of human psychology that some people don’t like to see those close to them change, even if that change is for the better.

You may be better off not sharing your goals with those whom you think will give you a hard time for wanting to eat healthier. But since you can’t avoid it completely, if people ask you about your diet, simply let them know you’ve decided to take better care of yourself. Rather than getting defensive, keep the focus on the positive benefits you’re achieving. If possible, try to surround yourself more with the people whom you aspire to be like and let them inspire you.

The third and final thing to do is get an accountability partner. Having someone to answer to is one of the most proven ways to stay on track. Find a supportive person in your life, share your goals and action plan with them, and stay in touch each week about your successes and failures. If you make mistakes (you will), talk with them about what you can do in the future to prevent it from happening again.
