Stop Villainizing 'bad' Food

Restriction and avoidance make compliance much harder
#
Focusing on the food you need to stay away from will only move those thoughts to the forefront of your mind.
#
I can’t have pizza, I can’t have sugar — will quickly turn into I really want some pizza, gimme all the sugar.
#
I challenge you to flip the script.
#
Instead of thinking about what we need to stay away from, let’s focus on what we should strive to incorporate.
#
Concentrate on including foods that are packed with micronutrients and improve our health, versus excluding foods that might not have these qualities.
#
The moderation and flexibility that comes with an approach like this will improve your quality of life and turn your diet from a quick fix to a sustainable lifestyle shift – regardless of tracking your macros or not.
#
Make it a priority to start adding in fruit, vegetables, leafy greens and lean meats to your meal plan.
#
Stop villainizing “bad” food.
#
There really is no such thing as “bad” food, and that kind of thinking can lead you right to the bottom of a Ben and Jerry’s pint (rather than enjoying a single scoop).
#
With this simple mindset shift, you are going to be eating a lot of high volume food, getting all the vitamins and minerals you need.
#
You will also be full and satisfied, so overindulging is unlikely.
#
Happy Eating!
