Bonjour from Paris!

As you can read from my title of this post, “perfect” is pretty impossible. I touched on this term many times in my previous posts in relation to dieting. And today, I wanted to give you an idea how a perfect day of dieting for me would look like in this ideal world :).

A Perfect Day of Dieting…

The night before my official day of dieting, I would aim to go to bed before 12 AM. I don’t think staying up too late is healthy in general. I also try not to eat anything after 12 AM, because apparently your body is not able to digest the food too well when eating super late.

When I wake up, I prefer to wake up early in the morning like 6-7 AM- that way I can get many things done for the day. I would start preparing to go to the gym and doing my workouts. And after a successful workout session, I immediately prepare something healthy for my breakfast. Something that includes healthy fats, protein and carbs such as one or two slices of toasts, eggs and veggies. Or maybe a green smoothie with spinach of course!

Okay, so once I’m done with my breakfast, I would do some work or run errands. If I’m out of the house, I’ll obviously grab some snacks with me- and only healthy snacks such as fruits and veggies. I try not to eat out at restaurants, because you never know what ingredients they put in your dishes. Oh, I’m also aiming to drink 3 cups of green tea in a day, because green tea is packed with great health benefits and it’s good for my diet!

For dinner, I would whipped up a salad with lean protein such as chicken. At some point, I’m tempted to give my Ben & Jerry’s Cookie Dough ice cream a try, but noo! It’s bad and eating that will basically waste a day of being good. I manage to resist my cravings and go to bed- ideally before 12 AM. And yet, I’m still hungry, angry and frustrated.

The new diet is NO DIET

This is how a perfect day of my diet would look like in my head. What I forgot to mention is that often times I follow everything exactly until I eventually fall into temptation of eating something naughty. The worst part is that once I fall into temptation, I would feel so guilty of myself that I would eat and eat- absolutely having no self-control whatsoever. Honestly, I’m tired of this diet mindset that everything has to be clean and healthy. And if you don’t do something according to plan, you’ll fail.

Today I decided…NO MORE DIETS! Okay, let me rephrase it. THE NEW DIET IS NO DIET. So stay tuned.

Have an awesome day!
