What Is The Easiest Way To Eat Healthy In The Long Run?
Opt for the 80/20 rule when planning your diet: Junk food, fast food, chocolates, ice-creams, sodas, energy drinks; there weren’t many distractions a few decades back!
Eating clean has become really difficult. I always say this, and it’s not what you eat; it’s what comes your way!
To combat this issue, I follow the 80/20 rule when eating.
What this means is that 80 percent of the time, I will eat super-healthy, only whole foods like pasture-raised eggs, whole cows milk, brown rice, beans, lentils, chicken breast, veggies, fruits etc. Basically, food items that don’t have an ingredient list!

And 20 percent of the time, I allow myself to eat to satisfy my cravings. Whey proteins, Quest Bars (Double Chocolate Chip Dough, Blueberry), red wine, pizzas, white bread.
Basically, food items have an ingredient list. (However, do note that I try and focus on selecting the best products, which probably have healthy ingredients and very less artificial stuff).
I tried eating clean 100 percent of the time for a short period of time, but unfortunately, I gave in, and that resulted in a massive binge for a few days!
After which, I decided to stick to 80/20 (sometimes 90/10 when I am cutting), and I strongly feel it’s the easiest and the most effective strategy to eat healthy in the long run.
