I hope you're having a good weekend
I came across this article about flexible dieting which I found very interesting and helpful, and I thought I'd share it here:
The phrase that really stuck with me was: "sustainability is the NUMBER ONE factor in creating a successful dietary approach".
For me dieting used to be like an on/off switch - either I was going all out obsessively counting calories and living off spinach, or I just ate whatever I wanted and didn't care about gaining weight. But more recently I've been trying this flexible diet approach - for the most part I eat healthy food with lots of veggies and lean protein, but I allow myself some snacks. I'm happy to say it's been working really well for me (for the most part; I'm still struggling with portion control, but it's getting easier).
So if anyone here finds it difficult to stick to a strict diet, consider giving flexible dieting a go! Maybe it will work for you?
