    What Is Healthy Eating?

    Healthy eating is the ability to eat anything, anytime, as long as it is in moderation. It is about consuming three varied, balanced, and nutritionally dense meals that include each of the food groups every day.

    TIP: In becoming a healthy eater, learn which foods are healthy for you.

    TIP: You cannot overeat on healthy foods if you are aware and respectful of when your body is hungry versus when it is full, when to eat and when to stop.

    If excess and imbalance have become a part of your eating lifestyle, if you find that you are without an accurate gauge for discerning when to eat and when to stop eating, you can expect to see this imbalance in many other areas of your life as well.

    It is likely that you may also be without accurate gauges with regard to:
    How much you study versus how much you recreate,
    How long you talk on the phone when homework is waiting,
    How often you give in to others demands versus when you stand your ground,
    When to turn off the television.
    How long and how frequently you exercise.

    If extremes describe your lifestyle, you might feel happier and more secure if you were to ask for some assistance in putting more structure and control into your life. Perhaps your parents could help you by providing more appropriate external limits in certain areas. You may decide to discuss these issues with your school social worker, or your psychotherapist.
