When your behavior is habitual, you do not rely on information or your good intentions or your deliberation or your ability to do it. You just do it.
Fifty-five percent of behavior tends to be repeated in the same location every day. Eating is a behavior that tends to be repeated in the same location and at approximately the same times every day.
If you think you can change your eating by learning about the disadvantages of eating too much food or eating too many calorie-rich foods, you are mistaken. A weight-gaining and weight-maintaining pattern of eating by its very nature is a set of habits that has become an integral part of your life. To change your eating behavior you must take the habitual nature of your eating behavior into consideration.
