That’s your most powerful weapon against unhealthy foods, against missed workout days, against anything that can derail your health.
If you take one thing away from this blog, let it be this: it’s ok to say no.
That’s not always easy, but it is effective. Especially if you want to see results from your diet.
For instance, your family, friends, and coworkers might not think anything of asking you out for, say, a night of drinks or a late-night snack. But if you’ve already committed to eating no later than 9 PM,or if you know your time out will lead you to drink a little (or a lot) too many carbs, the best answer might just be to say no.
This doesn’t mean you have to give up your social life. In fact, you ultimately want to learn how to live healthy in whatever you do…
But if you absolutely know your health will take a hit from doing something, it’s best to not even think about doing it. Know your limits, and protect your health. It’s one of the most valuable things you have!
Bonus Tip: Make a list of things you absolutely won’t eat or drink. That will help you set your own limits.
