Even if you are a seasoned yo-yo dieter, there are ways to permanently change your eating habits once and for all and get off of the dieting roller coaster.

Even if you have tried to eat healthier over and over again and have sworn off unhealthy foods once and for all, don't give up, it's never too late to make some healthy, lasting changes.

Healthy eating provides so many benefits for your body both on the inside and on the outside.

Regardless of if you have tried and tried again, here are 11 ways to permanently change your eating habits for the better.

1. Determine if You Are Ready

One of the ways to permanently change your eating habits for the better is to first determine if you are ready.

Just like you wouldn't start on a project until you were ready and fully prepared, don't try to change your diet until you are ready either.

While you might not ever be ready to limit some of your favorite unhealthy foods, if you educate yourself on why you are making changes first, the changes will be more likely to stick.2

Start small and make only one change at a time, but only when you are ready for the changes.

2. Define Why

Before any changes can be made, you first have to define why you want to make these changes.

Do you want to feel better?

To decrease your blood pressure?

To have more time with your grandchildren?

Whatever your reasons may be, define why you want to change first.

I've seen a lot of people try to go vegetarian or vegan long before they were ready and were eating meat only a few days later.

This happens because unless you know and have a strong understanding of why you are making changes, you are more likely to go back to your old habits.
