Unhealthy Eating Habits That are Bad for Your Waistline

The way you eat your food has a big impact on your health, maybe even more than the actual food you’re eating. So if you’re struggling to lose weight, especially that stubborn belly fat, check out these bad eating habits you should avoid at all cost.

Skipping Meals

Simple logic dictates that if you eat less, you’ll lose weight, but your body is more complicated than that. Studies suggest that people who skip meals are more likely to be obese, because this slows metabolism.

Eating When You’re Stressed

Let’s be honest, we all do this from time to time. Eating when you’re stressed is bad for your waistline and it can also cause a lot of health problems, so don’t make this a habit.

Day 10 of cooking Street Food on TikTok for 21 days! When I was young, my dad brought me to night markets every weekend in Taiwan. One of my favorite things to order was chicken rice bowls. When I moved to Canada, I was determined to recreate the dish so that way whenever I am homesick, I always had a bowl of chicken rice to bring back all the fantastic memories of my childhood.  The best part of the recipe is the sauce that is a combination of chicken oil and shallot oil; GET YOUR RICE READY EVERYONE!!!  I am using chicken thigh and leg today, but you can also use chicken breast if you like!  VIDEO NOW UP ON TIKTOK  Ingredients   4 piece of Chicken Thigh and Leg (separate meat and skin)  2 cups of Chicken Stock 3 cups of Water  3 slices of Ginger  1 green Onion  5 shallots (thinly chopped)  2 tbsp of Soy Sauce  1 tsp of Sugar  1 tsp of White Pepper  In a pot, add chicken stock, water, chicken meat, ginger, and green onion. Turn the heat up to medium-high, and once it starts simmering, let it cook for 7 minutes with the lid on. After turning the heat off, put the top on, and let it sit and rest for 15 minutes.  In a pan, drizzle in oil and add in chicken skin. Turn the heat to medium-high and let the skin render the oil out; mine took around 7 minutes. Once the skin is crispy and there is chicken oil in the pan, remove the skin and add in the shallots. Fry the shallots for 3-5 minutes or until crisp. Once the shallots are crispy, let is rest on a piece of paper towel to stay crispy.  OPTIONAL, BUT HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, use the chicken stock to make the rice.  Remove the chicken from the stock and let it rest to cool down. Once the chicken has cooled down, shred the chicken. Add in half of the sauce and half of the shallots and mix.  Next, to assemble the rice bowl, start with rice, add shredded chicken, top with crispy shallots, and drizzle with chicken oil sauce.  ENJOY!  乾杯🍻 gānbēi

Eating too Quickly

It takes time for the stomach to tell the brain that you’ve had enough food. That’s exactly why people who eat slowly consume less per meal, compared to people who eat faster.

Eating in Your Bedroom

It’s a well-known fact that associating food and eating with pleasure is not a good thing, because you then eat a lot more than you should. That’s why it’s best to avoid eating in your bedroom, in front of a TV, or while listening to music.
