🥗First, examine your relationship with every weekend being a “celebration”. When it comes to macros you can have a donut on a random Tuesday if you want so it takes away the weekend feeling like you have to “binge”.
🍔If you know where you’re going, look it up! Preplanning helps SO MUCH. Do you have to do this 5ever??! No! But the first few months it really helps you understand your choices.
🍳Try to modify something you’re craving, for example:
-Swap out a lower fat/lower carb cheese or no cheese
-if bacon, avocado and cheese come on it then maybe choose ONE bc they’re all heavy in fats
-OR get all of those goodies but get a side of steamed veggies/fruit.
YOU get to choose what’s “worth it” & what you can skip.
🍸Alcohol: have a drank or 2 but realize anything more than that is holding back progress in a deficit (gotta keep it real). Ya girl loves a classic vodka soda (put a crystal light packet in it & thank me later)
🍴Lastly: DONT BE AFRAID TO ASK FOR MODIFICATIONS. Do it politely obviously, don’t be a Karen and also leave a phat tip 🤑
🍾Flexible dieting is a way to open up our choices when actively trying to lose weight but still be *aware* of our choices.
(PS when were at maintenance, going out to eat gets “easier” but in a deficit we need to be a bit more choosy-check your privilege, it’s a privilege to be in a weight loss phase for most people)
