Eat Smart – Tip # 4

BE REALISTIC in your eating habits. Eating well and living a healthy lifestyle should NOT be an exercise in deprivation, but it’s unrealistic to think you’re only going to eat “good” food 100% of the time!

For this reason, I’m a big fan of the 80/20 theory, and based on this you should be eating “good” food 80% of the time, but you can also indulge in some of the “naughty” stuff 20% of the time. How you break it up is up to you and many of my clients are good from Monday – Friday and save their 20% naughties for the weekend.

80-20 Eating

But wait – the 80/20 theory goes WAY beyond just how much time you allow yourself the good and the bad! It can also be applied to a whole range of other areas of weight loss, fitness and nutrition.

My husband, Graham and I live in Newcastle (Australia), with our fur child, Axel – and our tribe of adult children are all off living their own best lives. I guess you could say I was a “late bloomer” – ie. it wasn’t until my 40’s that I discovered my love for all things fitness, nutrition, health and wellness. It started in 2004 when my eyes were opened to the fitness/sport of Pole Dancing just coming to Australia. We wanted IN, and by 2005 my daughter Bailey and I had opened our first pole studio – Pol-arise Fitness & Dance (which is still operating today under Bailey’s management). It wasn’t long before we also expanded into Aerial Yoga, Barre, Pilates, Suspension Fitness and Yoga, and I became a qualified Nutrition, Health and Life Coach (amongst other things). DEFY GRAVITY FITNESS brings together over 15 years of knowledge, and fusing it with Functional and Suspension fitness to create my EXCLUSIVE new Bungee and Suspension based fitness classes.
