Slow clap for your dedication Monday through 5pm on Friday. Now, let’s talk about what happens after 5 until Sunday dinner…when the guilt sets in. As a Weekend Eater/Calorie Saver, you know how to eat, exercise, and take care of yourself; you just tend to abandon ship and overindulge on the weekends, evening, and any out of the box scenario that you haven’t planned for. Eat, feel guilty, repeat. You don’t know how to break the cycle, and STOP starting over every. single. monday.
Did you know weekends account for 33% of your entire week? That means you’re kinda thwarting all your progress with those weekend binges. Womp, womp. Here’s what NOT to do: Don’t overcompensate for your lawless binges by extreme eating and overexercising. Don’t “budget” calories during the week for dinner, drinks, and dessert.
Just eat the thing, and move on. Yes, I’m telling you to eat the treat.
But this really isn’t about what you eat. If you never want to start over on a Monday again, you have to change your relationship with food. And that starts with learning how your body works—which is exactly what we teach in Metabolism Makeover. Think of it as a science class (but—a fun one) instead of a “program”. The thing is, once you understand your body, you’re able to make empowered decisions about food, and you’ll never feel out of control again.
And not only that, but we also spend an entire week inside Metabolism Makeover discussing eating on weekends, holidays, and special occasions without guilt.
With our new Metabolism Makeover web app, consider your path to food freedom just that much easier.
