9. The 80/20 Rule
The 80/20 rule is not only applicable to being healthy, it really is relevant in nearly every aspect of your life. However, when it comes to this topic, the 80/20 rule suggests that you eat healthy 80% of the time and the leftover 20% is for snacking and eating unhealthy. Not allowing yourself to have a treat will often have the opposite effect: you’ll want it even more and get more cravings. This could lead to overeating.
