Get calorie counting out of your heads!
I mentioned on Monday the 80/20 rule. That means eating well for 80% of the time, and then eating whatever it is you desire 20% of the time. Let's say you eat 3 main meals a day, and two snacks. That's 35 meals a week. Following the 80/20 rule that means that 7 of those meals, let's say 3 main meals, and 4 snacks, you can relax a little. All of a sudden, that seems like there's a lot less denial-of-self going on! Each treat if you like, counts as one of your seven cheat treats. Do you like the sound of that Betties!! Eating guilt-free!! 'Tis an amazing feeling I tell you. Sometimes you might even find yourself having just 4 of your 7 treats in a week! They don't carry over by the way, 7 per week is your limit!!
Anyway, for the rest of the week we are going to look at what a week of 7 relaxed meals might look like, just to give you a little Betty love. Valentines day looms after all!!
