Don’t Eliminate Your Favorite Foods
Lots of people who decide they want to lose weight believe that it’s an all or nothing approach. They decide that they’re going to give up all the foods they used to love and adopt a completely new eating strategy which is filled with healthy foods that they’ve never eaten before in their life.
However, losing weight is all about balance and there’s no reason for you to give up your favorite foods completely. While you will need to make changes to your eating strategy, you can still enjoy your favorite foods in moderation and lose weight.
A good way to balance healthy eating with your favorite foods is to adopt an 80/20 rule where 80% of the calories you consume come from living healthy foods and then 20% of the calories you consume come from other foods of your choosing.
By adopting this 80/20 rule, you’ll find that losing weight is much more fun as there are no restrictions and no foods are off limits. The freedom to eat your favorite foods in moderation makes the whole process much more enjoyable and you’re much more likely to stick with it as a result.
Hopefully you find this useful to incorporate into your daily routine. Leave me a comment below and let me know!
