Pass The N.E.T. with good eating habits

Pass The N.E.T. with good eating habits


Are you one of those test takers that have to have a bag of chips or popcorn next to you while you study? Well if you are, then you are one of many that have developed this habit over the years. One habit that is extremely hard to break. Overeating prior to testing for the Nursing Entrance Test, the HESI or the TEAS Test, may make you feel better but it won’t necessarily raise your score. Overeating is not the healthy way to study.
A lot of people are overweight today. Obesity is due to various factors that have integrated of a person’s life, not to mention the fact that there is also a genetic predisposition to being overweight. Our society does not help those who are obese. Models that are paper thin are touted as beautiful, beer is advertised and many types of foods that are empty in necessary vitamins but high in calories. Therefore anytime someone comes up with a quick fix to weight loss, there is band wagon of customers willing to try anything. Unfortunately, some of these products interact with blood pressure meds, and can be very dangerous to the heart and kidneys. Fast weight loss is not the answer. The so called, “quick fix” is a false statement that many are led to believe is fact. The body is a miraculous machine which can adapt to many different environments and eating adjustments. Those people who have been struggling with a weight problem for years have to understand that it is going to take perhaps years to take off the weight and to learn how to adjust to a new lifestyle. Losing weight is as much mental as it is physical. Just a alcoholics must religiously attend AA meetings, the overweight individual must also surround themselves with mentors and stimulation to keep up a new style of life and eating habits. It has been proven that excess weight can cause a plethora of health related problems, such as high cholesterol, heart disease, lung problems, and varicose veins. People who are obese also suffer from anxiety, stress and low self esteem. Not all obese people suffer from these aliments, but there are many. Society does not help their plight at all. A support group is especially crucial for the obese person to remain strong and committed to their new routine. Knowing that they can contact someone at all hours of the day and night helps to relieve the day to day stress associated with eating disorders and anxiety attacks.
The obese person should first begin the mental commitment to change in life and eating habits. Any type of change requires that one accept the change and then adapt to the change. It does not help when there are other family members who are overweight. The gradual change in choosing the right types of foods becomes harder when those in the home continue to have poor eating habits. This can tempt the overweight person. Beginning the journey to weight loss can begin with a simple statement of, “today I am going to begin an new lifestyle”, or “Today, I will not eat 1 candy bar.” As the obese person gradually is able to meet the small challenges, they can increase their repertoire to greater challenges. Accomplishing the small steps are the most important at first. One may say that they will go up and down a flight of stairs twice. Once they actually do it they can increase their goals daily. The overweight person gains confidence when they meet their daily goals. This building of confidence will help them to achieve their ultimate goal of lifetime fitness.
Building confidence without snacks is the first goal that one should try to achieve before studying for the N.E.T. If one must have some type of oral fixation, then try broccoli or cauliflower with a diet ranch dip. Even low fat crackers are better than high calorie snacks.
Best wishes and good health while you study.
