YOUR PERFECT Food Day
NO CARBS AFTER 3:00 PM IS THE TRICK
to losing weight, right? Or is it following a gluten-free diet? Wait… isn’t the Paleo diet the in-thing? What about 5:2 intermittent fasting diet? And oh… what about the 21day smoothie challenge? So many diets and rules to follow! It's enough to make one’s head spin! How is a girl supposed to keep track of them all?
There’s a wealth of diets and dietary rules out there, all of which promise to whip your body into shape in a flash. Although diet plans will always have a place in the world of health and weight loss, they come with their own pitfalls. For instance, imagine never eating carbs after 3:00 PM, or having to give up your favourite alcoholic drink! The downsides and the contradictory plans are enough to keep many people from trying to pursue the bodies of their dreams. To make matters worse, most diets can make you feel deprived which intensifies cravings for the restricted foods.
If only there was a way to eat to your fill and still lose weight! Well, there is a way. Forget dieting and eat whole unprocessed foods throughout the day. If you feel like having a cocktail at happy hour, go for it! If you crave ice-cream for dessert, have a tiny tub. Allow yourself cheat meals a maximum of twice a week. A cheat meal won’t make you unhealthy, just as one healthy meal
