Here is what I do. I eat healthier (fresh fruits & veggies, lean meats, egg whites) most of the time. I plan my breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack and take them with me to work. Then for dinner I have whatever my family is having (my hubby cooks). If it is not healthy food, I eat less of it. Then I have something healthy (ish) for snack in the evening. I drink lots of water (100 oz per day) and walk on my lunch breaks almost every day of the 5 day work week. I try to workout 3-4 times per week at home with you tube videos (fitnessblender is a new favorite) or Jillian Micheals.
I guess what I am trying to say is there is no one diet plan that is going to work for everyone. I don't want to be on a 'diet'. I want to live and if I want to eat something that isn't good for me one time...I am going to. What I can't do is starve myself until I go crazy and eat everything in sight. What good would that do?
You have to find what works for you and stick with it. I hope you find your own plan too!
