Once in a while, there will be a big birthday celebration or a holiday where you’ll want to relax a little from your usual nutrition plan. But the principles remain the same - make smart, big picture decisions.
Consider the general trend of your behaviour over the last month. This calls for brutal honesty!
- Have you stuck to the essential nutrition plan? Next, consider the results you have achieved.
- Are you making progress?
If yes to both of these questions, then letting loose at a big party once every 2-3 months isn’t going to make a difference in the grand scheme of things. See it as a blip on the radar.
You may notice some water retention for a few days after an event, but this is natural and completely fine. Go back to essential nutrition plan as normal, and your body will be back to where it was after a few days.
If you lead a lifestyle where there is always “something” - birthdays, leaving drinks, holidays, and other special events, it’s going to impact your results, and something has to change if you want a body transformation.
It's important that you are completely honest with yourself about the long term average of your behaviour, and the long term average of your results.
Long-term, if you've established a pattern of eating based on the essential nutrition plan we provide - then are occasional, infrequent deviations at special events here and there acceptable.
