TWR 021: How to Overcome a Case of the “EFF-ITS”

One of the easiest consequences to happen when you are following a diet is to fall off track. Weekends usually are the nightmare of someone trying to eat healthy during the week, but cannot control cravings on Saturdays and Sundays. This is the natural result of one thing: a super restrictive diet philosophy. We’ve all been there but, as always, there is a simple solution.

In this episode of The Wellness Revolution Podcast, Amber talks about how to overcome a case of the “EFF-ITS”, which means that moment when you give up a whole week of eating moderately because you gave in momentarily to what is seen as a “bad food”. Amber explains that in order to avoid these moments of shame and guilt, we first need to transform a super restrictive diet into a more sustainable one.
