This doesn't apply 2 me..I suck when it comes 2 eating healthy..temtation is a mothatrucka
Amen sista thanx 4 the advice
I don't cheat per say because I feel healthy eating is a lifelong commitment and it has to happen everyday or I'm not doing myself much good, just dieting. But I never have and never will completely eliminate foods I love from my diet (with the exception of health concerns). I can change foods I love to make them more healthy or have them sparingly and in small portions. Cutting out foods you love will make you want to cheat or give up. In addition, rather than watching calorie intake, I track the nutrients I take in throughout the day and make sure I am getting enough of what I need. I do take note of higher calorie meals and make then less frequently than the lower calorie ones. I also try to average my calorie intake each week, which can allow for some cheating with some sacrifice.
Usually if I know I have a intense workout coming up like my basketball game and I can afford the extra calories. Even then I do feel guilty for the lack of nutrients so I try not to do it often.
Everyday! Flavored cold coffee until it gets cold outside and I'll switch to hot. Lol.
