I’ve always believed that everyone was built different. I’ve always believed that no two people are the same when it comes to making healthy choices.
Everyone’s body is different. Everyone’s body is going to react differently when eating something, or even working out.
With that being said, here are a few things to keep in mind:
1. You decide what’s a cheat meal.
Everyone’s cheat meal varies. No one has the same one. For example, I indulge in the crispy yet slight greasy fish and chips. But for someone else, it would be different.
2. 80/20 Rule.
The 80/20 rule can be implied to everyone. You eat 80% healthy, and 20% indulge. I’m a pescatarian, a form of vegetarianism, and I love food just as much as the next person. But I know how to do the 80/20 rule. I eat healthy fish tacos, yet indulge in gelato.
3. Don’t exercise just for your health, do it because you love it.
The French, and other people in Europe love to walk and bike, more than driving a car. They enjoy certain exercises because it’s something they want to do. Because they know what helps them get around. They don’t do it for their health. They do it because they love it. They know that it’s healthy and keeps them active, but they take more pleasure out of it than focusing on getting ripped.
4. Embrace your body type, flaws, and shake what your mama gave you!
No one’s body is perfect. I can guarantee you that almost everyone has stretch marks. Not everyone is skinny. Not everyone is big. Everyone is different. Don’t be afraid to be different.
