Bailey said that you should acknowledge the fact that you’re not going to eat perfectly 100 percent of the time. “I am not so naive to believe that life doesn’t interrupt your health and nutrition goals,” she said. Bailey explained that it’s one thing to eat well in short spurts, but that you should aim to create a lifestyle where healthy eating habits make up the majority of your routine. This, she said, helps to leave room for “life.” “This is drinks with friends from out of town, birthday dinner with your kids, a retirement party with the office,” she explained. “A little wiggle room allows you to live a ‘normal life’ but still stay focused on the task at hand.”
