The Road Trip Diet (Travel and Lose Weight): Food Tip #6, Treat Treats as Treats

The Road Trip Diet does not eliminate your favorite treats.

After all, what is a road trip if not an opportunity to try new foods?

However, while traveling and at home, treats should be eaten in moderation. That is common sense.

Food Rules by Michael Pollan is an outstanding book. Rules are powerful, effective, and simple to understand and remember–with one of my favorite rules being Treat Treats as Treats.

Yes, you can have your cake and eat it too, just not as your breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

  2. Even though we love them so much, our favourite snacks are not meant to be taken in every single meal. Moderation is needed, especially when you want to keep a healthy lifestyle. Thank you for sharing this! Treats are not meals and should never be taken as such.
