The 6th Rule of inergi: 80 : 20…this is about INPUT

I don’t DO diets. I’m not good at being told I can’t HAVE something!!

So 80:20 works for ME, my body and my headspace.

I eat and drink cleanly 80% of the time and 20% I enjoy not having to think or be disciplined.

I don’t believe in putting restrictions on life. Its complicated enough as it is. Just place boundaries. It means that you have options so you can remain in control. The cravings can be satisfied, the socialising can be less awkward.

The 80:20 way means there are less chances of blowouts and more chance of balance!

 

So it’s a simple train of thought and is to do with what we put in our mouths.

The food we eat and the liquid we drink. This concept is:

THE 80’S…CLEAN

  1. UNLIMITED SALADS: rocket | mesculin | baby spinach OR grow your own (if I can, anyone can)

The denser the food the harder it will be for your body to digest:

MEAT vs FISH…PASTA vs RICE…CREAMY SAUCE vs TOMATO SAUCE…AILOI vs VINEGARETTE

DIGESTION IS THE KEY… if your body can’t process it, it will just store it….so the more WHOLE a food is, the easier it is for your body to digest.

 

BIGGEST TIP OF THEM ALL

EAT foods that have INTENSE flavours… spicy, tangy, sharp,

 

The more intense the flavour the SLOWER you will EAT because you are savouring the flavour, “the taste sensation”….

YOU WILL EAT LESS with MORE SATISFACTION

 

PORTION YOUR MEALS:

75% at worst 70% veges and | or salad

25% at worst 30% protein OR starches

 think…..FISH THREE TIMES A WEEK + MEAT FREE TWICE A WEEK

80% DO NOT MIX STARCHES AND PROTEINS, the FIT OR LIFE way … 20% mix them 

 

Because we are now in this for the long haul. Your health, fitness and wellbeing regime is going to be as second nature as flossing your teeth, googling your next adventure, going for coffee, meeting for A drink!

I have no time for long term guilt and pity parties, those days are over.

Be accountable for your actions and balance them out.

I might have chips, dip and wine for dinner one night out of seven, so what : The next day I’ll get back on track and eating fish and salad and green tea……80:20

I don’t have things in the house that I know I shouldn’t eat.

Planning is the key here. If you don’t plan, another week or another month goes by and you’ve made NO changes.
