The 80/20 Diet

I’ve been giving a lot of thought to different eating programs.  Whether it is no sugar-no white flour-no meat-plant-based-Keto-McDougall-Macrobiotic-candida-South Beach-or the sea food diet (I see it, I eat it).  I have come to the conclusion that everybody=every body is different and there is not a one-size-fits-all diet for everyone.

I thought I had created for myself a new diet called the 80/20 Diet, but after doing an internet search found the concept already exists.  What is boils down to is eating healthy 80% of the time and 20% of the time foods I should avoid. For me I feel healthiest when I avoid dairy, processed flour products, and too many animal products.  Telling myself I can’t have these things is a sure-fire way to fail and overeat my personal no-nos.  Allowing myself the 20% gives me a safety net for splurging.

As we are about to enter and period with lots of food: Shabbos, followed by Succot, followed by more Succos, and then Simchat Torah.  I have now found a happy balance to be able to enjoy my meals without having to micromanage what I’m eating.  I’m going to do my 80/20 diet.  Anyone want to try it with me?

Shabbat Shalom. Thanks for reading.

Karen, T.K.K.
