Fitness Tip of the Day: Keep 'Vice' Foods Close By

Maintaining a healthy diet means including all of the foods you love

When it comes developing a healthy, sustainable diet one of the main pieces of advice I have is that you should keep the foods you love in your diet—even if they're not the most nutritious.

You should keep the things you love in your diet and eat them in moderation occasionally, or you will most likely one day “crack” and overeat.

A study published this month from Vanderbilt University found that keeping your "vice" foods in the mix is one of the best way to improve your diet. As stated above, the study called for lowering the portions of these less healthy foods while increasing more good foods. 

This basically makes it easier to convince yourself to eat healthier and can lead to eating habits that are healthy and sustainable over the long term.
