Have you ever had one of those days when you were consistently eating clean and then all of a sudden, you just wanted to throw in a towel and indulge? Well, it turns out you are human! It is completely normal to want to cheat on your food and knowing that can open a whole new world of stress-free possibilities!
At DeliverLean we realized that early on, which is why we encourage our clients only eat our food six days a week. We WANT our clients to have a day of eating whatever they like so they don’t feel they are on a “diet”. Think about how much you each during the week – if you are eating 3 meals a day, that’s 21 meals a week. So, if you indulge during 2 meals a week, that’s only 10%!
To help you stop feeling guilty, think about your work-week. You work some and then you play some. If you worked all the time, you would get burned out and would want to quit. The same with food! You gotta eat clean most of the time, so your body works properly, and at the same time it is ok to “cheat” so that you can relax and unwind!
