Ever dreamt of enjoying your favorite ice-cream on your diet?

Ever “blown off” your diet because you couldn’t control your cravings and had one cookie? Might as well finish the entire jar now, right? BUT. What if you had it and could still be on your diet? Wouldn’t that be awesome? Most of us have a predisposition that we are/aren’t allowed to have certain foods in our diet. There are certain “good” foods and certain “bad” foods. But why? At the end of the day, the “bad” foods also contain calories; the same way as the “good” foods do, albeit with a lesser nutritional profile. Being on a diet means making smarter food choices with the caloric budget that you have. Enter the 80-20 rule, which states that 80% of your daily caloric intake should come from minimally processed, whole foods and the rest can come from whatever your guilty pleasures are. Ice-cream? Yes sir! How about a chocolate bar? Good to go. Just make sure you estimate those calories smartly and plan your caloric budget for the day/week accordingly so you can reward yourself for the hard work you put in! Bottom-line: Being flexible in your dieting approach makes sure you maintain a healthy food relationship and stick to the process in the long run. Make sure to plan your meals accordingly and you’re all set. NOTE: Building these habits takes time. Hence, self-control is key. So, you can have your cake and eat it too, literally! #FITTRinshorts #fittrcoach #healthylifestyle #flexibledieting
