Today’s Challenge: Treat Yourself

By the Editors of SilverSneakers |

Use the 80-20 rule to eat well most of the time without feeling deprived.

When you allow yourself dessert or your favorite treat, does it bring you utter bliss? In this Fit for Life Challenge video, fitness expert David Jack explains how the 80-20 rule can help you eat well without feeling deprived—and why you should make sure your 20 percent foods really count.

Nutrition experts agree: Including the occasional treat in sensible portions (so, a half-cup of ice cream, not an entire bowl) can make a healthy eating plan more sustainable.
