With the holiday season upon us, it’s easy to let yourself go. Avoid the January guilt by joining us on the 80/20 holiday challenge!
The average American eats 21 meals per week (3 meals a day, 7 days a week). When it comes to eating healthy, we often think the key to success is to forbid all “unhealthy” foods. Reality is, restricting yourself from food can lead to a downward spiral. At Superfit Foods, we preach a healthy balance. There is life-altering value in nourishing your body with healthy, nutritious foods. However, we’re all human and want to indulge in some wine and chocolate on a Saturday night.
The 80/20 rule is a balanced approach to healthy eating that incorporates moderation. This rule can be applied to many aspects of your life, but in this case: dieting.
Oscar Wilde once said, “Everything in moderation, including moderation” and we couldn’t agree more! Let’s be honest here, who can eat super clean 100% of the time? Depriving yourself of all the desired American treats simply isn’t realistic. We all enjoy (and deserve) an indulgence…in moderation of course!
The 80/20 rule is not a “fad diet” or tool for weight loss, rather a lifestyle. The practice is to make healthy eating choices 80% of the time, while letting yourself indulge the other 20%. Following this rule, you’ll sustain healthy eating habits long-term, making it easier for you to achieve and sustain your health and fitness goals.
