How to Get Back On Track When Your Good Habits Stop Working

by | Oct 31, 2016


After years of yo-yo dieting, Ashley had finally got off the dieting rollercoaster after discovering Summer Tomato and Foodist. She learned to embrace the foodist lifestyle and joyfully lost weight without dieting. Things were great.

Ashley’s new habits were working great until she had a shift in her work life that enabled her to work from home. While she loves her new freedom and flexibility in her day, some of her more structured habits like lunch and snacks have fallen back into disarray.

Together we discuss what has changed in her routines and come up with some strategies she can use to retake control of her choices.

Wish you had more time to listen to the podcast? I use an app called Overcast (no affiliation) to play back my favorite podcasts at faster speeds, dynamically shortening silences in talk shows so it doesn’t sound weird. It’s pretty rad.

    This is literally my evening every day! Thank you for this podcast! I get home with 2 kids, am completely stressed out, hungry and tired and will eat while cooking. Def going to get out an apple and take 5. Thank you!

    I think a little bit of re-calibration from time to time isn’t such a bad idea.

    I do the same thing almost every weeknight! It’s good to know other people have the same issue. I’m going to try and take 5 minutes and relax, and try to eat something healthy to hold myself over. =) Thanks!

    Hi Darya,
    Is there anywhere I can read the article of your “podcast”? Maybe I am so old fashion but reading the words is always more impactful for me. Your articles are always excellent and has resonated with many little episodes of my life. Thank you very much!

    Thanks to you and Ashley for this episode. Like the others, I identified hard with Ashley’s experience! And it put me in mind of what I’m hoping might be a coming phase of your work: Foodist Kids. Why do we let ourselves feed junk to our kids? How can we keep up our good health habits when we have zero minutes to ourselves? How do we become Foodist families? I would love to see your perspective and any research that might be relevant. Many thanks as always for your work.

    Thank you for the podcasts. And thank you to all the foodists who participate.
    I have gained from every one that I listen to.
    Apart from the insights I develop, I now look forward to my new habit of doing a 2 – 3km run – I don’t really enjoy jogging but I like the podcasts so much that I am motivated to do the run.
