Eating foods you enjoy means you’re much more likely to stick to your diet.⁣
You have more control than if you had a set meal plan.⁣
I see more buy in because it’s a sustainable change.⁣

It does take more time to prepare/track your food.⁣
If you choose β€œdiet foods” (like Halo Top Ice Cream) they can be more expensive.⁣
β€œJunk” foods can actually INCREASE cravings… hence β€œBet you can’t eat just one.”⁣
Tracking can lead to more food focus (for example more planning/waiting for meals)⁣
