⚠️ Lets talk ➡️ Your relationship with food. Is your Monday to Friday ‘perfectly strict’ and weekends an absolute train wreck⁉️ In the dieting world a restricted Monday-Friday and blow out Saturday-Sunday pattern is a common vicious cycle 🔄 and indicates a poor relationship with food. Essentially dieters consider food in two categories either good or bad and anything falling into the ‘bad’ category is usually what indies the diet and is consumed in uncontrolled portions when the diet is too restrictive! ✅ Your body recognises your intake on a periodic basis which is why no matter whether or not it’s the weekend or how ‘clean’ you ate during the week – it still counts and may be hindering your results.
💡 Consider this, if you’re consuming just over 1200 calories Monday – Thursday followed by a 9000 calorie Friday onwards of dine out meals, sweets, take out, cheat meals, alcohol etc = then despite your ‘clean weekdays’ your weekly daily average is STILL 1900. This could be the reason you are maintaining/not losing weight provided it may not equate to a calorie deficit for your body. 🔑 Whether it’s alcohol, your favourite dine out meal, chocolate, ice cream etc the key is to maintain a more balanced approach and incorporate these as part of a balanced diet on a consistent basis as opposed to weekend blow out. ⚠️ Non restrictive diets from a calorie and macronutrient perspective be more effective in achieving your goals AND sustaining a good relationship with food
