The 80/20 'Balanced' Diet
100% adherence is unrealistic for 99% of individuals.
You are not the 1% and you shouldn’t expect yourself to be.
This diagram shows what an 80/20 split looks like for someone who has 3 meals, 7 days per week.
Pizza, kebab, burger & fries and pancakes all included.
Obviously, portion sizing and variation would have to be considered…
A homemade, lower calorie pizza will be different to a dominos with added sides.
The difference between a small and large dominos will also be significant.
Calories on a stack of pancakes can be easily doubled depending on the topping/sauce smothered on top.
Although they can be included, this chart doesn’t show snacks or grazing through the day too.
Alcohol is a different story.
