Tip #2: Focusing on what you CAN eat vs what you CAN’T eat

 A diet is more than just eating salads. I owe this tip to my dad. For years he would always associate dieting with salads. He didn’t understand ( and still doesn’t) that dieting doesn’t limit you as much as you might think. The key to a consistent diet is variety. People get bored of eating […]
