Allowing Room for Unhealthy Choices

80-20-principle As an RD, I have received various forms of judgement and pre-conceived notions about my lifestyle and eating habits. “I bet you don’t eat that.” “How do you eat that and stay thin?” “Don’t judge me for eating these chips – I had a craving.” The truth is that I don’t have a perfect diet. I have a sweet tooth, I eat out, and even indulge in ‘junk food’ when I’m out such as pizza. Do I feel guilty about indulging in sweets and junk food? Not one bit. Why? I follow the 80/20 rule.
