We are smack dab in the first week of #FierceAF and talking a lot about macros, calories, meal plans, numbers, and how it all works with successful fat loss. One recurring topic of struggle is weekend eating.
When I first started “dieting” I remember have constant moments of falling on and off the wagon. This is where the classic yo-yo dieting would make it’s way into my life.
Monday through Friday I’d get super strict with myself, food prep, drink tons of water to then let all hell break loose come Friday night.
Friday night would be an open invitation for alcohol, chips, cookies, brownies, ice cream and any food I wanted to shove into my mouth.
My continual self-inflicted yo-yo roller coaster was brought on by 2 things:
I was too strict all week not allowing myself some wiggle room to have “bad” foods so I’d go hog wild on the weekends
My mindset that “I’ve exercised all week and ate healthy I deserve a cheat weekend”
It’s taken time to hone in my mindset around food. Too many years of strict dieting will keep you on this unsuccessful loop.
Now that I use a “flexible dieting” approach I can eat the same on Monday as I do on Sunday without wrecking my progress. Plus I feel a whole hell of a lot better too!
In this video I’ll share with you the 3 things that you need to STOP doing on the weekends that are ruining your results.
