Dietitian Julie Upton, MS, RD, of Appetite For Health puts it best: "You wouldn't cheat on your partner, and you don't cheat on tests, so why would you cheat on something as important as your diet?" Today, there's no cheating. Instead, your mission is to make time to move and eat clean.
When you feel overwhelmed by work, family, or a busy social calendar, it's too easy to skip out on the gym. Learn to plan workouts in advance, so you don't cheat on your healthy goals. And if you're not sure what constitutes a clean and healthy diet, read through the clean-eating rules we swear by. If your regular diet is filled with processed foods, you'll feel a difference after just one day of natural, good-for-you foods.
