It is challenging to stay on track with eating and exercising on a day to day basis, but when life throws you curve balls with work demands, health issues, and family needs, it can be almost impossible. Almost. With some planning and care, you can create a menu with healthy meals that are quick to prepare and take time to schedule "me" time to get your exercise. So, why do I find myself and so many others lost and unmotivated when we do lose our way and stray from being "on track". I call it the "unforgiveable factor".

I usually encourage everyone to use their FREE MEAL strategy on the weekends because this is an opportunity to spend time with family and loved ones over a meal without worrying about diet, calories, macros, and eating off of plan. Food is so much more than nutritional sustenance and we've all spent the majority of our existence eating in a relaxed atmosphere with the most important people in our lives. One (or two) meal(s) off of plan will not disrupt your fat loss goals if the rest of your week has been spot on with your program.
