So I signed up for a gym and am almost a week into my program. I'll write about that in my week one post. Anyway, part of this sign up was a full health assessment (finger prick...ouch!) and an hour long meeting with a trainer to discuss your goals and offer some advice. The trainer loved my program and asked me how I was doing on my diet. I told him I was following it to a T but it did come up that I put a tiny splash of creamer in my coffee which isn't on the program. I was thinking it was no big deal, and still don't think it is. But the trainer made a really good point:
When following eating plans, even minor substitutions are bad. It's not the actual cheat or substitution it's the attitude. It's a snowball effect. One little thing here, one little thing there, then you are packing on the pounds again.
This really stuck with me. I am following this thing to a T and not allowing any cheats!
