What Is The 80/20 Rule?
May 27, 2016
You might have heard that Olivia Munn recently lost 12 pounds for her role in X-Men by practicing the 80/20 rule. There were literally so many articles on the web about it–but, wait, what is the 80/20 rule?
It’s simple, when following this “diet”, 80% of the time you focus on clean, good-for-you food (especially vegetables). The other 20% of the time you allow yourself to eat (pretty much) whatever you want. The rationale being, as long as you eat really well *most of the time* you don’t need to freak out and start eliminating entire food groups. Gisele also swears by it.
Olivia told Women’s Health, “When I started on X-Men, I had been training and doing regular personal training and trying to eat in a healthy way. My intention was to just get as fit and as healthy as I could be, for myself…I started working out every single day, and then I also started getting into eating 20-80, where 80 percent of your diet is fruits and vegetables and 20 percent is whatever. So, that can be any kind of meats or breads or anything else, but mostly fruits and vegetables.”
Well, there you have it!
