The 80/20 diet rule is economics hand-in-hand with nutrition, a way of eating that’s far from a weight loss plan but promotes healthy eating and better choices all the same.
When trying to lose weight or just eat healthier, it’s common to think that we need to cut out entire food groups from our diet because they’re seen as ‘less healthy’ than others. But actually, this is rarely the case and when we do this, we’re likely to feel restricted and are much more likely to binge eat the very foods we’re trying to stay away from.
Enter the 80/20 diet rule. It’s an ‘everything in moderation’ approach to eating, encouraging everyone to have the foods they enjoy while prioritizing those higher in macronutrients, vitamins, and minerals. Whether you’re trying to get into a calorie deficit to lose weight or just want to incorporate more nutrients into your diet, this is what you need to know about the rule, according to a nutritionist.
