How can you eat pizza 🍕+ still stay on track? 🧐🤯
People ask me all the time how I’m able to eat these foods and still stay on track and it’s really quite simple…the key to a sustainable lifestyle is ONLY doing + eating what you actually enjoy.
That means if you can’t see yourself doing what you’re doing five, ten, or fifteen years from now — STOP DOING IT.
It’s as simple as that.
No one likes to be miserable, am I right? 😏
Quite honestly, restricting yourself from entire food groups is miserable.
It might be “okay” or something you can manage until your husband asks you out for a dinner date…
or your kid is celebrating their birthday…
or your best friend is in town and wants to have a marg to celebrate…
What happens then?
If you are stuck in a rigid diet, you have two options: to say “no” and be miserable or say “yes, just this one time” which will either lead to guilt + shame or going completely crazy because you’re “treating yourself” (aka cheating yourself)
I don’t want you to have these feelings toward food, and I’m guessing that you don’t either…😬
Our bodies need food + food should be enjoyed in moderation!
Luckily, when you follow a customized approach to nutrition using macro counting, it does not label foods as “good” or “bad.”
This allows you the opportunity to fit foods that may been previously known as “cheat” foods into your daily allotment of macros!
Yes that means you can eat that piece of cake, have that pizza, drink the beer and enjoy that ice cream! 😋
A normal daily intake consists of about 70-80% of my day filled with nutrient dense foods, leaving 20-30% for sweets and treats!
This is exactly why I’m able to eat this entire pizza (#pizzawithjai) & an entire pint of ice cream later even while being on a mini cut! 👏🏼
