“It’s more of a general guideline, really. I think the 20% is just as important as the 80%. The 20% takes care of you emotionally.”
Her choice of healthy meal plans mostly includes lots of fruits, lean proteins, complex carbs, and fresh vegetables. But, Anna also understands the need of eating the foods you like.
“I think food should be fun … you should be able to enjoy a meal without feeling guilty about it.”
