So many people believe that in order to achieve healthy weight loss, they have completely give up the things they love, their guilty pleasures like wine and chocolate.
Well guess what:
I'm a transformational health coach, and I love dark chocolate, salty potato chips, and a good cabernet sauvignon.
Shocking, I know!
This "all or nothing" approach does nothing but creates impossible standards that set us up for guilt, shame, and disappointment.
Here are my top 3 secrets to a healthy, balanced lifestyle:
1. The 80/20 Rule
A lot of people think that in order to be healthy, you have to aim to eat perfectly 100% of the time.
But in my training and experience, it's more like an 80/20 rule.
80% of the time I try to eat seasonal, mostly plant-based whole food meals that nourish my body.
20% of the time I don't worry about what I'm eating and I just enjoy life.
80% of the time I try to eat home cooked food.
20% of the time I order whatever I want!
