If you’ve ever gone on a diet…
Then you probably remember looking down at your plate and feeling like something was… missing.
That’s because a lot of popular diets and food trends are restrictive and only focus on taking things away…
Instead of adding in more healthy things.
So your diet becomes eating only “this” — and absolutely none of “that.”
The problem is, diets end up making you feel discouraged, or like you’re missing out on your favorite foods.
(Because once you’re only allowed to eat “this” — all you can think about is “that.”)
And when you’re feeling deprived, your “cheat days” usually end up turning into unhealthy binges.
Fortunately, there’s a much easier way to make sure you’re getting all of the healthy foods you need…
While still being able to indulge every once in awhile.
It’s called “The R.O.G. Rule.”
And it’s simple to follow because it allows YOU to decide what you eat.
Here’s how it works:
With each meal, just make sure you have at least one red, orange, and green fruit or veggie on your plate…
And that’s it!
The rest of your meal is up to you.
As long as you have some red, orange, and green on your plate — you can eat whatever else you want.
Because when you fill you up on nutritious food first, you naturally won’t want to indulge as much on dessert or other guilty snacks…
And you’ll be getting the important nutrients you need — without even having to think about it.
Now, to give you a better idea of how the “R.O.G. Rule” really works… here are a few examples of how you can easily incorporate it into any meal.
You see, adding color to your plate can be fun — and there’s no “right” or “wrong” way to do it.
Because you’ll be filling up on delicious and nutritious foods of YOUR choice…
And the absolute best part of this rule… is that YOU are the one in control.
Think of it as the “rule” — with virtually no rules.
So feel free to mix and match your colors with every meal and find what works best for you.
Whether your red, orange, and greens are raw, cooked, or added to a sauce… there’s no wrong way to use this rule.
And you’ll never feel like you’re missing out again.
Stay Healthy, Stay Happy
P.S. In case you’re wondering, here’s how I practice “The R.O.G. Rule.”
For reds: I like to focus on whatever’s in season like cranberries, apples, beets, and watermelon.
For oranges: I can’t get enough of butternut squash, mangoes, and — because Halloween is right around the corner — pumpkin!
For greens: I love Brussels sprouts, artichokes, and of course, all things leafy. I also enjoy a cup of green tea in the morning with breakfast.
As always, be sure to let me know how you’re incorporating these healthy “colors” into your meals — by replying to this email.
