When I say that I tend not to eat as healthily during the summer, I was kind of meaning that when eating out, I might get a hamburger and fries instead of a salad for example. I rarely do that but that's an example. Or, I might indulge in dessert for a treat. It's those kinds of things that I need to get better control of.
I recently read in my Eat Clean cookbook the following and it really resonated with me:
"Think of it this way: If you have a lot of weight to lose, you need to be stricter with your food choices until you have met your goals. The cheese (or whatever) isn't going anywhere. It will still be available to you three months, six months or even a year from now. If you have already met your weight-loss goals, you can be a little less strict with yourself -- although this isn't permission to get crazy with the Cheez Whiz. I do eat cheese myself but I eat it rarely and sparingly."
Good advice, isn't it? Or, as Roni would say, how bad do you want it?
