Keeping it Real

Realistic limitations and actions are much easier to adopt, practice and become habitual. This is why it’s so important to set up your plan using realistic or easily achievable guidelines. Consider these two options using sugar as an example since it’s a strong addiction for many;

1. I’ll never eat processed sugar again.

2. Following the 80/20 rule I’ll limit my sugar indulgences to 3 or 4 times weekly. (numbers based on a 3 meals per day lifestyle)

Obviously the latter is a much easier and more realistic guideline. You wanna know the beauty in that? It means you can follow it consistently, for the long haul and enjoy success in your weight loss efforts AND your health! The all or nothing approach doesn’t work because it’s far too restrictive and easy to bail on. You likely know this because you’ve done so in the past – just like ALL of us have.
