80/20 Rule Eat To Live Your Best Life




If you eat healthy with purpose 80% of the time then the other 20% can be the stuff you want to eat because you like and it makes your life worth living.

More Information:

Look at it this way if all you do is eat stuff that is healthy and never eat the stuff you love you'll feel deprived I did this for years and failed my diet goals over and over with binge eating on my favorite foods. So if you really want a cookie then eat it just go back to healthy straight after!
