What is a bad eating habit? The other day someone asked me sir i ate dosa is it good or bad for me?
No food is bad. Even french fries are not a bad food if you look at it from a calorie perspective. It will give you some calories that can help meet the body’s daily caloric requirement, but it is fried and oiled, making it not the preferred choice of food.

So even if you are injured and not training, your body might still give you signals to feed the same amount of calories as the pre-injury period.
Suddenly you are ending up eating more calories than you actually required as you are resting.
It’s not so about bad eating habits but more so becoming aware of current requirements and rejig your diet and intake.
The bad habit develops on the psychological level. When athletes get injured they might be tempted to drift away from their strict and disciplined daily regimen.
Many athletes like to reward themselves with massive meals because they believe that the hard work they put into the training sessions will cover it up.
Unfortunately, it only lessens the positive impact that might have had on the body.
Similarly, when an athlete is injured, it is not the time to set yourself free; instead, it is the time to be more disciplined. Athlete’s mentality during these times is what separates the champions from the rest.
