WHY A LITTLE TREAT CAN DO YOU THE WORLD OF GOOD
We all know the dieting mantra that too much of anything can be bad for you. However, it is also true that a little bit of what you fancy does you the world of good. When trying to create a balanced eating regime, it can be very easy to fall into the trap of eating foods that are really healthy, but are also so bland that you do not have anything to look forward to at meal times.
One of the most disheartening things to hear about dieting is that people can come to dread eating if they have removed all their favourite foods from their meal plans. This is as much about psychology as it is about the physical side of things - if you enjoy what you eat, you are more likely to feel good about yourself, be motivated and also have the energy to get out and about to maintain an active lifestyle.
So, do not ban yourself from a sweet treat every now and again, it could be one of the most important parts of your diet! You'll find plenty of low calorie treats inside the Equal Kitchen.
