How many of us would like to have our cake and eat it, without eating the whole thing?
Having some balance with treats can be a real challenge for those of us that suffer with ‘all or nothing’ mentality. It can be so hard not to allow one treat to become a ‘fuck it’ situation where you feel like you’ve messed up and just eat all the crap until starting again the next day, or the next Monday!
This is something I’ve struggled with in the past, but have successfully managed with a few tricks. I decided to record a vlog about it all, sharing my top tips!
To sum it up:
- Decide what a treat is for you – and decide what is really worth it, your faves
- Upgrade where you can
- Set some boundaries for yourself – how many treats a week / eating out a month
- Work in some healthy alternatives where they work for you
- Have realistic expectations about how many treats work for your body, tolerance for certain foods and your goals
