01 Jul What you DON’T Have to do to be Healthy…Forgoing Sweets
I’m asked about what I eat a LOT. Yes, I eat a lot of yummy salads, veggies and grains (what some friends call ‘bird food’), but I also eat french fries and chocolate-covered anything. I know, GASP and not very healthy of me…or is it?
We all know deprivation can wreck havoc on the best intentions. Swear off chocolate for a week and it’s all you can think about. You end up with your face in the closest bag of chocolate you can find.
The good news is, you don’t have to eat only veggies and grains to be healthy – you can indulge (and eat sweets!) too.
Obviously, what you eat is the most important part of diet.
But how much you eat counts just as much, if not more.
Most food falls in the less-is-more category. Veggies? Eat all you want. The other stuff that tastes oh-so-good? Follow the “palm of your hand” ruleand you’ll be eating well – and indulging a little – in no time.
