It isn’t a justification for eating off plan foods. Off plan is off plan.
It doesn’t mean ignoring THM principles of separating fats from carbs, protein centred meals, timing of meals, etc.
It does mean having the freedom of not starving or being hangry. It doesn’t mean counting calories or macros but to be aware of them.
It means the freedom to choose your S, E or FP meals based upon your needs, your wants, your budget, etc. some people need more E meals than S meals or vice versa. Some need more FP. Anything done to excess becomes unbalanced and is not THM any way.
It means not being bound to follow your best friend or popular blogger but instead choose when you will eat and what food category you’ll eat.
It means that you don’t have to like or consume smoothies if you hate them. Substitute nearly anything in place of the word ‘smoothies’. I don’t much care for kale, shakes or oats.
This is THM your way. And THM, unlike most other eating philosophies, has room for ALL types of people!
Your home looks different to mine and they both look different to someone else’s. As they should be.
If you have any questions about doing THM your way, feel free to ask.
