What happens when you’re told you can’t have something? You want it more! That’s why strict diets don’t work! It’s too hard to be perfect 100% of the time! We’re humans, we have cravings that if not fulfilled drive us crazy!
Say you’re following a strict diet and fall off the wagon by eating something you’re ”not” supposed to. You feel guilty, then overindulge again…it’s a vicious cycle! Instead, give yourself the green light to “moderately” indulge daily! If you eat a diet made up of “real” food and consume mostly plant based meals you can budget for a little splurge! Remember, moderation is key…I’m not saying go ahead and polish off a 42 oz. bag of M&M’s in one sitting!
My splurge food is dark chocolate. I allow myself to have a few squares every day. It satisfies my sweet tooth and keeps my cravings at bay. I love making treats at home with raw cacao, but when I’m too busy I indulge in brands that don’t have all the “junk” such as Unreal Candy, Chocolove, and Dagoba.
If I’m craving something salty and crunchy I will make air popped popcorn with sea salt, rice crackers, crispy chickpeas or have a few handfuls of potato chips such as Terra Chips.
Yes, that’s right…a Dietitian just told you to eat potato chips and chocolate!
What’s your splurge food? Do you crave salty or sweet?
How come your best friend thrives off of eating a raw, vegan diet that leaves you feeling cranky, drained and constantly craving good old cooked food? Unfortunately, there isn’t a one-size fits all approach to healthy eating.
What works for some may not work for others.
So where does that leave you, how do you know what foods to eat? Use your body as a laboratory! Listen to it and learn what fuels you best. Experiment and keep a food journal to connect the dots. For example, start off each morning with a different breakfast. One morning eat a grain-based meal, the next morning have a breakfast high in protein, then the next morning have a light breakfast of fruit. Monitor and record how you feel 1-2 hours after eating. Maybe you will discover you feel sluggish and reaching for sugary snacks when you started the day off with a bowl of oatmeal. Use this information to create a “diet” that is unique to your needs!
Take the time, experiment, and listen to what your body is telling you!
The more you listen, the more you will learn!
