Diet Rules I Love To Break

I have a fun video for you on YouTube about 4 diet rules that I like to break. In that I get a little warm and ‘soapbox-y’ because it’s a subject I’m quite passionate about!


When you feel like you’re being pushed and pulled in a million different directions by every Instagram fitness and health account you follow…


Take a deep breath…😮‍💨

And remember you don’t have to follow the rules! 💃

There is so much freedom to be found OUTSIDE of diet culture.

After 10+ years of discovering what really works for my body, I’m here to share with you the four diet rules I LOVE to break.

Diet Rules I Love To Break

4 diet rules I like to break

1️⃣ I eat a lot of high-calorie foods.

In the past, in my 20s and my 30s, I was all about low-calorie foods, and I automatically thought that if they were low-calorie, they were healthy.

These days I look for foods that are nutrient and calorie dense. I’m talking red meat, salmon, BUTTER. 🧈

2️⃣ I eat after eight o’clock.

I will eat when I am hungry. There’s a lot of that diet culture like “oh don’t eat past seven or eight because you’ll gain weight.”

I don’t think that’s accurate. Overall caloric intake, activity level, hormonal imbalances, and much more come into play with fat gain and loss.

3️⃣ I don’t save fancy money for the weekend.

I tracked Monday through Friday and then went off the track Friday night through Sunday. I was so restrictive during the week that when Friday night came, it was wine, pizza and nachos.🍕🍷

Every day is very important because it keeps you more consistent with your eating habits.

4️⃣ I love fruit and eat a lot of it.

I also love fruit juice.🧃 I feel like fruit and fruit juice get a really bad rap in the diet culture world. Everyone thinks fruit has too much sugar.

Listen, no one who eats fruit gains weight and gets fat because of fruit. 🤦‍♀️

Fruits are good for you. It has fiber, antioxidants and phytochemicals, and it’s delicious.

I’d love to hear what you have to say because, yes, sometimes these rules keep you in line.

They hold you accountable, and they work for you.

Sometimes they can also be completely crazy and NOT work for you.
