Go Ahead and Cheat a Little

During our quest for a healthy lifestyle we sometimes deprive ourselves to much, when a little cheating could actually keep us on the band wagon. For example, I here that it is sometimes to hard to stick with a certain diet or nutrition plan because you crave your favorite unhealthy foods. So instead of sticking with the healthy program you quit or don't even start. Instead give yourself a day to eat those unhealthy foods, just don't go crazy and make yourself sick. This is a great incentive for being good 6 out of the 7 days in a week. The best thing is you're more likely to stay on your healthy eating plan because your providing yourself with balance. As time goes on you'll crave those unhealthy foods less and less. But when you first start don't forget to cheat a little!


  1. Following from the hop! Follow back if you have time! :)

  2. I have to have a nibble of chocolate now and then but I find the craving getting farther and farther apart. Great post.

  3. i will definitely try this during the week. this is the first day of my new healthy lifestyle so this is perfect timing!

  4. Great advice ~ to often we throw in the towel when we suffer a set back - instead of giving ourselves permission to give ourselves a break!

    Thanks for joining the Tuesday Train!
