No amounts of dieting or gimmicks will get you to a happy place with your body. Having an enjoyable exercise routine and knowledge about how different foods affect your body is the answer.
Avoiding whole food groups is a fast road to the binge mentality, because when you are exposed to them an “all or nothing” attitude can develop. It is much better not to outlaw any foods but understand that when you eat high calorie foods everybody needs to have portion control.

The pancakes fitness models eat
I love making healthy versions of my favourite high calorie foods because not only do they keep me satisfied for longer, I am also getting far more nutrients which positively impacts my health.
Mayans and Aztecs used chia seeds, which come from a flowering plant in the mint family, as a staple energy source. In fact, the word “chia” itself derives from the Mayan word for strength. Chia seeds are a complete protein source, meaning that they contain all essential amino acids. The seeds also contain a high concentration of omega-3 fatty acids, which can help reduce inflammation.

I have never excluded carbohydrates from my preparations and I eat carbs for example: rice cakes, sweet potato, pumpkin, brown rice, basmati rice, gluten free bread. I eat a heap of green and red vegetables and plenty of protein combined with good fats.
