Losing weight can be a chore sometimes, but if you formulate a plan that you can easily stick to then it could be a whole lot easier.
This is one of the simplest weight loss plans you can follow. It is called the 90 – 10 rule for eating snacks and meals.
The name basically says it all. You can cheat on your diet 10% of the time with this rule and still lose weight. It works by calculating how many feeds you have in a day. So 3 meals and 2 snacks would mean that you have a total of 5 feeds in a day.
That would work out at you having in effect 35 feeds in the week. 10% of these feeds is 3 , so if we round that up we get 4 feeds. This means that you are then allowed to cheat on four of your feeds in a week without it affecting your chances of losing weight.
It does not matter whether you decide to cheat on your snacks or on your meals, just as long as you only cheat up to a maximum of four times a week. For the rest of the week you have to eat sensibly and stick to this regime.
When we say sensible, what that means is a matter of opinion. Common sense should prevail in this case. Avoid anything that is bad for you and eat only healthy foods and you will be fine.
The common cause of people dropping out of their dieting program is that they are often too strict for them to adhere to. The 90/10 rule is a completely different system. With you getting to cheat on certain occasions that you choose, it does not feel as though you are on a strict diet at all.
If there is a downside to this rule, it is that you should not drink milk or any kind of soda, not even diet soda! You should only drink protein shakes made with water, filtered water or green tea. These are all healthy drinks that will do you good.
So stop feeling guilty about what you eat. Lose weight with the 90/10 rule and enjoy yourself while you do it.
