80/20 Eating Rule I Follow

1 Jan
80 20
I do my best to follow the “80/20 Rule” when it comes to the foods I eat. I eat healthy 80% of the time and 20% of the time I allow myself to splurge.
There are 7 days in a week and I eat 3 meals per day, which comes out to 21 meals per week. I eat 17 healthy meals and 4 not so healthy meals each week. I also eat 3 snacks each day. Usually, 2 hours after each main meal. Again, that’s 21 snacks per week. I eat around 17 healthy snacks and 4 not so healthy snacks each week.
I make sure I eat the proper serving size regardless of the food being healthy or not so healthy…….This might be something you want to incorporate if you’ve made the decision to switch to a healthier lifestyle.
