I remember every time I used to start a diet or eating healthier, I always felt like I was missing out on my favourite foods.
I had 20kgs to lose so it really felt like I would be missing out on my favourite foods for ever.
And that was really tough because I love food.
I just felt miserable all the time and this feeling of missing out would always lead to a blowout.
I finally got results (and lost 20kgs) when I started including my favourite foods.
Here is what I did…
Once a week I started having what I call a “Refuel Meal”.
A refuel meal is one meal a week where I ate without any “diet rules”.
Refuel Meal Ideas:
- Pizza and garlic bread,
- Spaghetti bolognese,
- Thai noodles,
- Burgers and wedges,
- a slice of apple pie,
- going out to dinner with my partner,
- or having an Indian takeaway on the couch watching a great funny film
Bonus: I found out later that eating richer food and more calories in one meal, once a week actually “reset” my metabolism.
So my special “refuel” meal:
- Allowed me to eat my favourite “go to” food every week
- Gave me something to look forward to every week
- Prevented blowouts
- Made my metabolism speed up, for faster weightloss
I was losing weight faster by eating more!!!!
The refuel meal has been part of my programs and a favourite with my clients for the last 16 years!
If you love food like I do forget going on “diets” and trying to eat nothing but salad…
