#Diets: You hear the “d” word. Panic ensues as your mind is consumed by thoughts of bidding all of those tasty donuts adieu. Luckily, #NutritionPlans don’t need to be based on elimination. What about all of the new foods you can add? Let’s talk balance.
When you are starting a new diet or nutrition plan, it’s easy to feel really bummed out about all of the things you “can’t,” eat anymore - namely, all the fun stuff.
Most of those diets out there tell you that you can’t have donuts, french fries, cheese, alcohol, peanuts, and the lists go on and on and on. When you’re flexible dieting, we don’t tell you what you can and cannot eat (but this isn’t necessarily about that).
Instead of focusing on things you think you can’t have anymore, let’s focus on all of the new things you can have in abundance. What we’re saying is that you should make your nutrition more of an, “add this,” not, “eliminate that,” diet.
You know you should probably add more veggies, so try a new one each week. You know you should probably drink less alcohol, so allow yourself one instead of three. It doesn’t have to be complete elimination, just less of certain things and more of other things.
