Being fit is trendier than ever. Yet the notion of body positivity is on a surge. There are advocates of veganism, people who swear eating raw saved them, sniff paleo cakes all day, get high on ketones and some lucky spirits that has their intuition do their portion controls (I don’t think they tried our ice-cream).

On an individual level the quest to be healthy has all the innocent intentions. Which is of course to look hot and feel bomb. And maybe live 873 years extra and slay. With heaps of information online, pressures bombarding us from all directions its no surprise somewhere along the line some of us overplay the means and the ends. This implicates our mental health adversely with devastating eating disorders, and mental illnesses.

We’re not here to take a side, we’re not even here to create awareness on the problem. Quite frankly we couldn’t care less.

The Raw Truth
Doesn’t the pursuit of becoming healthy become unhealthy sometimes?

What starts as the purest intention to look hot, feel bomb, and get strong. And maybe live 873 years extra, CAN backfire.

And that’s just not right

We’re here to break the status quo, and make some rules of our own while we’re at it.

A Tale of 1001 Nights

The founder’s story is no different than that of the many people who took gym and eating by the reigns and slayed flawlessly. Little did they know, somewhere along the way, they found themselves in a vicious cycle, confused with what went wrong.

After exactly 1001 nights, the founder had an epiphany. She found that we lose control, because we try to control our body’s natural means of survival.

Obvious? Stay with her, she’s on to something.

The logic

o be able to sustain and maintain a ‘healthy’ lifestyle, two problems needed to be taken care of.

1. Removal of continual decision making

2. Leniency towards what we think we ‘should’ not eat

Studying this, she found we don’t normally lack the desire and motivation to reach a target physique. What makes the effort tiresome is maintenance. Having to repeatedly make decisions, triggers our impulses sooner or later, as they are biologically meant to protect us from caloric deficit. Often we blame this on our lack of willpower

The key element here is the removal of continual decision making, which helps maintain our efforts in the long term. One of the reasons some find meal plans helpful is because it removes the constant need and pressure to make decisions.

What these programs lack however is leniency, which is the second contributing factor to sustainable eating habits. Satisfaction from eating, is another natural part of life. How about embracing it for a change? There is only a certain amount of dry cardboard-tasting chicken breasts we can endure chewing on, before running for the ice-cream tub.
