I'm usually pretty good at watching what I eat on the week days... But I DREAD the weekends! Between going away dinners, birthday dinners, movies dates, functions etc... There always seems to be a reason to indulge in pretty bad foods & drinks. Not to mention I only work Mon-Fri so aside from working out, I'm usually way less active when off. Any advice or tips?

One thing that works for meis before leving the house, make sure I am full. In a satisfying way. Get full on protein and fiber so you won't want to eat in healthy things. To do this you might still indulge in the good stuff but you have to train your stomach to stay full on protein.

One thing that works great for must of clients is 90 percent clean,10 percent dirty diet meaning eat clean mon-Sat,  then Sunday have a cheat meal but not outrageous.  Something u could look forward if u earn it, it keep u discipline & balance at the sometime. Good luck

I understand I'm human... But I swear cheat meals + hunger = the devil! And I can get unreasonable at times when I'm hungry lol. But aside from working out being a major stress relief for me, I do have goals I want to attain. So here goes! I hope it works for me. Thanks so much for your help
