If you found it hard to stick to your fitness goals, you still have a few months to change that! Healthy eating is essential when it comes to achieving your desired weight, but it can be quite difficult and tricky. What really is the deal with it? Below, beauty-queen-turned-celebrity-chef Sabrina Artadi debunks misconceptions about healthy eating, which may even encourage you to become fitter than ever!
Healthy eating is expensive. “It’s very important. It’s actually cheap, especially local vegetables,” the former beauty queen says. These are everyday ingredients that can make you feel full! The way you eat has an impact on your health and performance, and going for fruits and veggies doesn’t always demand a high price!

Healthy eating is boring. “People think it’s hindi masarap. It’s so not true,” stresses Sabrina. Others quickly get bored with their meals as they can be simple and repetitive, causing them to experience sudden cravings. Yet, she clears it’s just a matter of adding fun to it! “If you watch my show, you’d see how I always make healthy food colorful and delicious!”

Healthy eating is unsustainable. Sabrina argues, “Magagawa mo ito every day and puwedeng hindi ka magsawa.” What could be an effective system of staying in shape? It’s eating right from Monday to Saturday, and having a binge day every week. “Binge day, meaning, ikaw na bahala – softdrinks, cakes, pizza, doughnuts, whatever. Having a binge day can help you stay on track with your goals.”
