No matter what healthy eating plan (aka DIET) you choose to follow, I’ve found that one rule always applies…
Do you agree with this? It doesn’t matter if you are a weight watcher, vegan, localvore, or paleo. It’s a simple formula normally.
Eat less and move more.
But what about the days when it’s not really that simple?
Here is I’ve learned:
I don’t cheat unless I feel deprived. I don’t feel deprived until I feel like I can’t have a certain thing. I don’t feel like I can’t have a certain thing when I am prepared with my own snacks and food.
For example: When I’m at work, one of my biggest struggles is the fact that we have a Coldstone Creamery right in the hospital. When I was going through my Whole30, it wasn’t even an option for me. I was always prepared with my macadamia nuts and unsweetened dried cherries. Now that my Whole30 is officially over, I haven’t been as prepared. So then I get hungry. Now all of the sudden, I feel deprived. No packed snacks. What are my options at the hospital? Coldstone Creamery of course!!!!
When I think ahead of time, and prepare for anything that can come my way, I stick to my healthy eating plan better. I choose my own coffee with coconut creamer instead of soda, nuts instead of candy, and real food instead of processed food. I don’t feel deprived either.
How can you take charge of your healthy eating plan? What can you do to prepare yourself so you don’t have to deal with the feelings of deprivation?
