This is a Mars bar. I love Mars bars. This Mars bar is not naughty or bad. Eating this Mars bar does not mean that I will need to run 3.66km to burn it off. Maybe I will have a bite or two of it after my dinner tonight. Maybe I’ll eat the whole thing. Maybe I won’t feel like it at all.
Eating this Mars bar will not make me unhealthy. It will not stop me from reaching my fitness goals and it will not make any movement I did last week null and void. I don’t eat Mars bars all the time but I don’t completely restrict them either.
To me, a Mars bar is not a “treat”. I’m not a dog. I don’t work or perform tricks for my food. I include Mars bars as a part of a balanced and moderate diet which also consists of lean protein, fresh fruit, lots of vegetables and some fat. If I want a Mars bar, I will eat one. No guilt. No shame. It’s just a Mars bar and life is too short to not enjoy food you love.
