Breakfast is always a hard one for most people. We are surround by cereals and sugary breakfast options everywhere which load us with carbohydrates. Now I do follow flexible dieting so I have nothing against sugar and cereals, however, unless you are doing a workout in the morning, eating a high carbohydrate meal may leave you hungry and lethargic soon after your meal.
There are few things that I love about flexible dieting; one of them is that no food is off limits. As long as you have a healthy, balanced diet you can include less nutrient dense foods too. It’s all about moderation.
Today’s society does, however, promote one fad diet after the other, where people are told to avoid certain foods or exclude them completely. Not only can this food restriction cause an unhealthy restrictive/binge eating behaviour, but it may also make you lose out on important vitamins and minerals.
Eating a range of different foods will not only ensure that your diet is more palatable and exacting, but it will also ensure that you get a larger variety of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other phytochemicals.
