Some call it "cheating", but I call it "being naughty."
If you lived by the rules all the time, you would have no fun. There are too many rules to follow all the time.
Nutrition is the same. There are very few hard-and-fast rules that all nutrition "experts" can agree on. The one thing they agree on is that they agree on nothing.
Vegan or low-carb?
Sugar or no sugar?
Alcohol or no alcohol?
Cheat days or no?
In my YouTube series this week, I released a series of videos about various behaviors that are "holding you back" as the article says.
If you listened to these rules all the time, you would basically have an eating disorder.
You would be what I was 10 years ago: constantly living in fear of the next bite of "forbidden food", constantly tracking everything, tweaking my diet without any noticeable effect, analyzing nutrition labels, looking at menus beforehand, saying no to everything that I wanted.
If you listened to personal trainers, dieticians, nutritionists, etc. all the time you be eating nothing but "superfoods" all the time, would be spending $200 a week on food and supplements, would never allow a gram of sugar or salt to pass your lips, and would live in constant fear of some ingredient on the label ("uh oh, beat sugar could give me diabetes!").
Forget it. There's a better way: https://bit.ly/2UQcLBW
