There are so many diets out there telling us conflicting messages — Atkins says to cut carbs, Whole30 says to not eat dairy, and cleanses encourage ditching anything solid.

But for fitness blogger Nikki Rees, allowing herself to have a little bit of everything helped to drastically change her body.

Of course she didn't get so toned without exercising, but her main secret came from letting go of a strict diet.

In her post, Nikki admits she doesn't count calories and hasn't eliminated any one food.

Yep, that's right. She still eats things like cake, pizza, and burgers!

Nikki recommends eating what you love "now and then," and eating what you need - like fruits, veggies, and lean proteins - more often than not.

She also makes a point to show that her weight is exactly the same in both photos. So remember: it doesn't matter what's on the scale, as long as you're happy with yourself!
