Changing how I eat is a process. It will take time, and I will never be perfect.
Flour is a higher-calorie density food. Usually I don't eat highly refined flour products, and my bread is usually high-quality, whole grain bread from a local bakery.
There were a couple of times I came close to eating something I knew wasn't healthy for me (popcorn cooked in oil with salt added), but I knew that wasn't what I really wanted for my body.
At first, I felt disappointed in myself, and then I quickly shifted my mindset (I've built up my ability to do so). I knew the feeling was temporary, and I knew I could learn from my mistake. I’m developing new eating habits that will take time.
Once you understand the concept of calorie density in more depth, however, and you take a closer look at the foods you eat, you’ll realize how knowing calorie density can help you lose or maintain your weight.
