Why Cheat Meals Are OK

1 Salad Vs. 1 Pizza: This Instagram Photo Makes the Point That Dieting Doesn't Work This Way

Ever eaten a salad and thought you were just the epitome of health? Same. But unfortunately, we all know that consistency is key to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Personal trainer and health coach Sierra Nielsen shared a photo on Instagram comparing one salad to one pizza, and made a strong case against this all-or-nothing attitude. Just as one healthy meal won't instantly make you fit, one cheat meal won't ruin all your progress either.

"It's about BALANCE and focusing on trying to CONSISTENTLY fill up that beautiful bod on the regular with tons of the good healthy stuff that makes you FEEL GOOD (hint hint plants) and not beating yourself up and throwing in the towel when you cheat or indulge here and there," she wrote in her caption.

She continued to say that cheating on your diet also doesn't mean you should punish yourself by fasting or working out twice as hard the next day. You're allowed to treat yourself every now and then, so don't beat yourself up after every indulgence!

"Because come on, we all know pizza, wine, and cheesecake are LIFE!" Preach, Sierra.
