“Sorry guys, I can’t come out to dinner. I’m on a diet.”
So, going on a diet not only takes away the foods you love, but now the people too?! This mindset is setting you up for failure. Surely you are not going to avoid all restaurants for the rest of your life to stick to your diet. And why are you dieting anyways?
Living a sustainable, healthy lifestyle can be challenging at times, but avoiding your friends and family for fear of falling off the wagon at a restaurant is just crazy. The difference between a diet and a healthy lifestyle is knowing that there are going to be some perfect days and plenty of not so perfect days- and that’s okay!
