Permission to cheat

Healthy eating. Sounds easy enough but is it really? I think the mistake most of us make is that we try to do it all at once with no permission to mess up. Things like “no more sugar”, “no more fried foods”, “I’m only going to drink water from now on” or my personal one “I’m giving up soda”! The problem with those kinds of declarations is that it sets a high standard that is probably not going to last.

What if instead we decided to make a conscious effort to make healthier choices but also gave ourselves permission to make unhealthy choices ON OCCASION? Let’s face it, we mess up and when we make hard and fast rules with no leeway we set ourselves up to fail!

This is why I love carb cycling. By alternating our high and low carb days we have a variety but as part of Chris Powell’s program we also get a GUILT FREE DAY! A day to give into that French fry or doughnut craving! One of the purposes of this blog is to enable you to make better choices and to learn to be good stewards of the body God has given you.

Join me next time as we delve into why God would care what we eat.

What do you find yourself craving? Do you tend to make bold declarations or you a little at a time person? Widgets
