We all know that taking care of our bodies is an important thing. But every now and then we need to splurge, because if we don’t have that second helping of cake or that plate of pasta, we might just go crazy from wanting what we can’t have.

Now that the holidays are coming up, bowls and plates filled with carbs, sugar, and processed food are going to be served. And we should eat the hell out of it! We’re on a break from things that stress us out, so why not take a "food break" and eat whatever we want, too.

If you’re still hesitant to eat what you want during the holidays, here are 3 reasons why you actually should!


You Only Live Once

“YOLO” may be an overused phrase, but it gets the point across when it comes to this! It’s okay to cheat on your diet once in a while because your body won’t drastically change if you eat a slice of pizza. And the best place to splurge on food is during the holidays when cookies, cocktails, and roasted meat are abundant, and the spirit of the festivities make it even funner!

Eat The Right Amount

Are you worried your gut will come back if you eat a few pieces of chocolate? Or that your skin will lose its glow once you gulp that glass of wine? As long as the amount your consuming is just enough, then there’s nothing to worry about! There’s a difference between splurging and overeating.

You Can Always Detox After

Cleansing, detoxifying, juicing, these are just some of the things you can do after the holidays to slowly get back into your diet again. Doing a cleanse right after the festivities is perfect to remove anything unwanted in your body, it will help flush out toxins, and clean your system again.
