I know it took me a long time to post another post but now I’m back!
This time I don’t want to talk about one of my rule I want to talk about the 80-20 rule.
The 80-20 rule is a great rule.
That mean that 80% of the time you eat healthy and 20% of the time you eat whatever you want.
In other words one unhealthy meal a day or 73 unhealthy days a year (like vacation and birthday party).
Super easy to follow this rule and it’s suitable to all ages.
What’s my problem with this rule? Well, most of what you eat is from the 20% part and this is my problem. You think you eat healthy but guess what? YOU DON’T!
What’s worry me the most is your breakfast; I’ll put money that your breakfast is unhealthy but you think it is, so you eat more unhealthy things during the day and you don’t understand why you not healthy or why you fat.
What goes into the 20% part?
Any flour - with gluten or sans gluten (you like my French?)
Any type of dairy – cow, goat, soy, almond, rice, quinoa or any other grain you can think of.
Any process meat – bacon, sausage, ham and any other sandwich meat.
Any process sugar – if it’s not RAW honey or REAL maple it’s BAD! Even if it’s raw cane sugar it’s still bad.
What most people have for breakfast? (If they smart enough to eat breakfast and not just drink coffee).
Pancakes, waffles, toast with peanut butter and jam, cereal, yogurt, bagel with cream cheese, eggs and bacon, sausage or ham and muffins.
Beside the eggs part everything else is super unhealthy!
What can you eat for breakfast?
How about eggs, fruit, veggies, fish, chicken breast, oats (not instant!!!) and potatoes (in moderation)?
Healthy unprocessed food to fuel you for your day and give you essential vitamins and minerals you need to function
Eating healthy 80 of the time is great just make sure it truly healthy and again.
I eat process food too but as a treat.
My latte – treat
Granola with almond milk - treat
I’m trying to keep it to one treat a day; If I have my latte I won’t have granola.
They both treat. Not food, TREAT!
It might sound weird but give it a try.
You going to see result so fast that you be shocked!
