⠀⠀
? Are you curious about “Flexible Dieting”? Or maybe you’ve heard of the “80/20 Rule” for dieting and you want to learn more?
⠀⠀
If yes, this post is for you! ?
⠀⠀
? Flexible Dieting, or the 80/20 approach to diet and nutrition basically comes down to this:
⠀⠀
?? 80% of your total daily calorie intake should come from whole, healthy foods like lean proteins, fruits, veggies, whole grains and healthy fats.
⠀⠀
?? This means that 20% of your total daily calorie intake can be “flexible”, and can be allocated to foods you really enjoy, like Oreo’s, a slice of pizza or some ice cream.
⠀⠀
? As an example, if you were eating 2,000 calories per day, roughly 1,600 calories (80%) would ideally come from foods like chicken breast, apples, berries, sweet potatoes, cucumbers, peaches and carrots, and roughy 400 calories (20%) can come from your favorite fun foods, like a cupcake.
⠀⠀
? And furthermore, the way you get started on this diet is quite simple…
⠀⠀
? Download some sort of nutrition tracking app that will help you set your daily calorie intake, and loosely track your intake to make sure your diet is close to the 80/20 numbers we discussed above.
⠀⠀
? And if you’re curious as to WHY this flexible style of eating is best, the answer is this…
⠀⠀
? Sustainability.
⠀⠀
⏳ When you allow for flexibility in your diet, you can maintain your diet long term and keep your results for life.
⠀⠀
? As I always say, it’s better to be consistent for 12 weeks than it is to be perfect for 1 week.
⠀⠀
Got it? Good! ?
