Treats, sweets and chocolate don’t have to be seasonal. You can definitely have them all year round (I mean every day) if you want them! Obviously, some people will just say “duh” and eat it anyway. This post probably isn’t for you. This post is for people that think that chocolate and cakes are ‘fattening’, bad for you and generally a once in a blue moon thing. Totally not the case. They’re obviously full of sugar and aren’t packed with vitamins but if they keep you sane in small quantities then they’re totally fine and I think, essential.
Eating healthy can quickly become boring if you’re in a rut. Being in a rut basically, means that you’re eating the same things and you’re bored of it. This will quickly lead to escalated cheat days and not sticking to your calories and therefore not losing weight or staying as healthy as you want to. Here are four ways to get out of your food rut!
‘Diet’ desserts are usually pretty dire, am I right? I mean we all know fruit salad isn’t a dessert and yoghurt and berries just don’t cut it sometimes. Don’t get me wrong, I love my yoghurt and berries and a bit of dark chocolate but sometimes you just need something that is tasty and artificially sweet (in a good way!). That cake or ice-cream sweet is hard to beat if you’re running on pure cravings so I like to find puddings that are in no way clean eating but don’t break the calorie bank. Treats like these are hard to find!
Staying on track on a ‘diet’ can be super tough. That’s why I’m so glad that I’ve finally found a lifestyle that I feel like I can stick to! I’ve done my fair share of fad diets and workouts in my time so I finally feel like I’m there with something sustainable! Here I’ve got some tips on how to stay on track with your food and not cave when someone hands you a £1 McDonalds voucher in the street.
Fancy living on 500 calories a day? Nope, me neither but I’ve seen a tonne of articles recently claiming to help people on the 5:2 diet get on well with their fasting days where they only eat 500 calories. Some of these articles are saying that you should start your day with 40g of porridge oats or some Belvita Breakfast biscuits and it’s just not sustainable, nor is it going to keep the person full. They’re also saying to blow at least half of the calories in the first meal of the day. Some of these meal plans don’t even have a lunch included but, I don’t know about you, I wouldn’t be able to last from breakfast until dinner on some sugary breakfast biscuits.
