“I think that it is quite useful in the summer, the ice or the trendy to approve Beyond Meat Burger. Food should be fun. There is nothing worse to ban food, and thus run the risk of sliding into an eating disorder. There are no prohibitions, there are no feelings of guilt. Goodbye, Food Cravings. Good-Bye, And Binge Eating.
This does not mean, of course, that you should do it every day, with an ice-cream or Pizza on the Sofa comfortably.
Keep to your macros and micro nutrients, cook fresh and balanced, and you train in the week so often to put want to without you.”
