How many of you have tried sticking to a well balanced/ healthier diet and failed quite a few times ?

I definitely have. It's hard to stay away (personally) completely from fizzy drinks, burgers, lots of "white food types" and over and over again, I ended up starting again , trying my best to stay away and say "no thank you" . I admit, starting out , after a few days or at least within a months time , I can feel the difference. One feels... lighter? Cleaner on the inside, less sluggish (personlly) . Well , with wanting to up ones fitness, what I put into my body also contributes to the end goal.

Good day all !

Oh yea I can relate. It was really difficult initially and I still have slips. But I agree, eating healthy definitely feels healthier and gives me more energy.what I noticed is if you stick to it long enough, the junk will actually turn u off. I can't even tolerate soft drinks anymore, wayy to sweet for me.

Nonetheless I think it's OK to have some cheat moments. I still buy a chocolate bar and eat it slowly over 1 to 2 weeks. All in moderation and as long as we work out it should be ok.

Hi Jodie. I think all of us have been there. I know how you feel. I have felt the same way. What i have found is that suport groups work wonders and help you keep accountable and on target. If you are interested let me know i could be your accountability partner and put you in my groups.

Hello there I won't mind at all :) new when it comes down to partnering up with someone for motivation n all but it sure will help. Like at the moment I'm sick , stuck in bed for a few days and it's so so easy to reach over n grab fizzy drinks n chips. balancing that out right now with exercise is impossible since one shouldn't do vigorous exercise during flu/ chest problems . So this week I will try my best to eat better under the circumstances hehe

For me it's all about "moderation"

I used to eat crap almost every day. Got it down to a few days. Now it's a couple of days a week. I slowly worked the junk out of my life such as soda/takeout and now feel no guilt whatsoever when I indulge myself coz I train like an animal and most of the time keep to a healthy, well-balanced diet.

You don't need fad diets or to starve yourself. Nor do you need to spend money on marketed drink replacements etc etc etc etc.

Healthy, balanced meals eaten in moderation and a trianing program that pushes you is all the body needs to look and feel good.
