80/20 Rule Eat To Live Your Best Life


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

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.

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!

    I like this too. Sometimes, I feel so deprived. I hope it works,
although I expect to still do it in moderation!
