Cutting Back After You’ve Overindulged

The art of weight maintenance is balance. This is especially true when it comes to food. There will be times when you consume more calories than you normally would. You may decide to have dessert or a second glass of wine at a special event. Sometimes, we just have days when we’re feeling a little self-indulgent.

You can relax and enjoy yourself more fully when you know that you will be able to compensate for those extra calories the next day or the day after that. If Saturday was a day of pancake breakfasts and barbecued ribs, for example, you might want to make Sunday a protein day. You can substitute a Lean for Life protein drink for one, two, or all three of your meals, get some exercise, and quickly tip the scale back into balance.
