NBSV 098: “Cheat” meals and why I don’t use that term, there’s no “perfect diet”, & other BS-busting
A listener asked, “How do you feel about cheat days or cheat meals?” This is my answer. I discuss why I don’t use the term “cheat” in relation to food, why there’s no such thing as a “perfect” diet or “good” and “bad” foods, why rigid rules and restriction don’t work when it comes to nutrition, and how to break away from the all-or-nothing approach to dieting. I’ve also included powerful writing pieces from three fitness professionals on these subjects.
Important topics and points you don't want to miss:
>> The concept of "the perfect diet": does it actually exist?
>> Why terminology and how we use language is imperative within this dialogue
>> How we can obliterate the concept of "guilt foods" (and why we damn well need to!)
