  1. Such a great title! I’m having to backtrack and catch up, and loving it so far. The 80% rule is pretty much where I’m at right now, and it is SUCH a happier and healthier place than the crazy diets/exercise plans to which I used to be a slave. Being able to occasionally enjoy a treat (hellooo chai lattes) or do yoga in place of my usual workout is so refreshing, and makes me that much more appreciative of the normal healthy foods and hard workouts that I choose.

    Excited for this series to unfold! 🙂

  2. Great post, Monica! I definitely believe the 80/20 “rule” is such a great way to live life. There’s also less room for guilt, which seems to come easier when you’re trying to live restrictively.

  3. Thanks for teaching me a new term- life hack. I’ve never heard of it before. And, you are right, the 80% rule does simplify things. Thanks for the sensible advice. Looking forward for more on this topic.

  4. This works on me .I have done 95% and have lost weight .but went off track for few months…

    Now staring again.so reading this post will help me so much…

    Thank you ..thank you

  5. This really make sense to me. I don’t know why I haven’t thought about like this before. I have tried absolutely EVERYTHING!!!!! I have the HEAD knowledge.The will power comes and goes. It is almost like you have given me permission to lose weight without going on a diet. I need that 🙂 Thanks, Monica!

  6. Good words, my friend. It’s very common sensical.


  7. I so appreciate this fresh approach to dealign with diet and weight issues. I have failed at so many diets and I do think it is much harder to change your thinking than to follow another diet…But I know it makes sense and I think you communicate it very well.
    I”ll be following closely! 🙂

    1. Thank you Camille! I hope it continues to make sense and that you can try doing things differently…I believe it will work if you want it to! Much aloha!

  8. Oh this is so well said and makes perfect sense to me!! I LOVE IT! Thank you. 😉
