The 80/20 rule is a guideline that suggests that you should strive to eat healthy, nutritious foods 80% of the time and indulge in less healthy foods 20% of the time.
This means that you should aim to eat whole, nutrient-dense foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats for 80% of your meals. The other 20% of the time, you can enjoy less nutritious foods such as processed snacks, desserts, and fast food in moderation.
The 80/20 rule is a flexible approach to healthy eating, allowing for occasional treats and indulgences without completely derailing your healthy eating habits. It’s important to note that the rule is not a pass to eat unhealthy foods all the time, but rather a balance between healthy and less healthy foods that can be sustained in the long term.
- 80% of the foods you eat should be healthy, whole foods. The other 20% should be foods you enjoy!
- Nutrition doesn’t always have to be 100% restrictive, boring, and tasteless.
- Learn to create a balance between the foods that will help you move towards your fat loss goals, and the foods that you enjoy!
