the most useful way to discover Balance
Do you struggle with trying to find the balance between good and bad choices? Are you ready to find the perfect combo of the foods to keep you healthy/on track and the foods you know you should avoid, but love? Is the yo-yo dieting something you want to get rid of forever and find freedom in the food you eat?
If you answered yes to these questions, then the 80/20 rule is your perfect match.
I have struggled with my weight since I can remember. When I was in college I was trying every fad diet out there.
Pills, low carb, no carb, pre packaged meals, counting calories, tracking my food, barely eating, and eating only chicken and broccoli. If there is something you thought of that wasn't on this list...you can beat I tried that too. That was the way I rolled for many years.
Until one day I realized this was so insanely unhealthy. I would go from a size 8 to a 4 to a 12 to a 6 to a 10 down to a 6 again. If you think I am joking....I wish I was.
I literally had over 40 pairs of jeans in my closet because I didn't know what size I would in a few months.
After I had my kids I was struggling to get back on track with my weight and nutrition. So, I made 2 adjustments in my life. The first one was consistently meal planning and the 2nd was adding 80/20 into my life. I was able to lose weight, make the healthy choices I needed to on a consistent basis, and feel amazing in my skin again.
These were things that I never understood or was able to do. It felt so good to finally have these areas of my life mastered.
I went from:
😢feeling like crap
😢having no energy
😢 constantly fatigued
😢 making poor food choices
😢 lots of headaches and skin issues
To 100% each and every day of my life...finally!
I was able to:
🤩get rid of my headaches/skin issues
🤩be happy playing with my kids everyday
🤩have energy that I haven't had since high school
🤩learn how to serve my body with a balance of foods to fuel me
I felt so good!

How to 80/20 In a Nutshell:
This is how I love to break down how to implement this into your life:
Most people eat 3 meals a day, 7 days a week....that's 21 meals.
If you take 80% of that 21, that is 16. So I eat 16 clean meals a week.
20% of 21 is 5, so I eat 5 'loose meal's per week.
What do 80% clean and 20% loose meal choices look like?
80% clean is anything I know is healthy for me and is fueling my body with the good things.
🍴Lots of water
🍴Roasted or raw veggies
🍴Olive oil/vinaigrette dressings
🍴Coffee not loaded with sugar
20% loose meals are foods that I know I should not eat everyday. If any of these foods are in my meal, then it counts as a 20% meal in my books.
👎Heavy cream sauced foods
👎Large amounts of carbs
👎Bacon, sausages and highly processed meats
Be sure to reference the 80/20 cheat sheet for more pointers. But, the main thing is planning out your week. Not having a plan leads to failure. This is why the combo of meal planning and 80/20 has been an amazing combo for me. I plan out my meals for the week. I map out what meals are my 20% so that I do not make bad choices every single day like I use to. Having a plan to stick to when I map out my choices for the week has been the ultimate game changer for me, and it can be for you as well!
