so i dont know how to regulate a cheat day. what do you guys do? how far off your diet do you stray?
I dont allow myself "cheat days", it would defeat the purpose.
wow, you read an article written by some lazy bitch who cant stay on her diet. Like I said I dont cheat, why put in all that work just to cheat yourself?
no cheat meals lately, but i've been experimenting with a once a week carb load
I don't incorporate them into my diet. Instead, I follow my diet as strictly as I can and then if I end up in a circumstance where I have to eat out with other people, for example, that becomes my cheat and I enjoy it rather than feeling guilty about it.
On the flip side though, I don't binge with it - if I have to eat out, I don't go all out and have starter, main and dessert and I don't think that eating a 1000cal piece of cake doesn't count because I'm 'cheating'!
Generally, say I was aiming for an intake of 2000 on a daily basis, I always tend to hit just under (say about 1900-50) so that gives me 300-600 calories to play with if I do end up in a situation.
I don't know about anyone else but for the most part, the satisfaction of eating junk disappears. The other year when I was cutting I felt physically ill after eating KFC and during this cut I've had an instance where I've eaten more calorie loaded crisps and it just did nothing for me. It was just a waste - I'd rather have eaten something healthy.
you on a CKD diet?
If not, why are you carb loading?
I do not have planned cheat days. I just follow a strict diet and then if the time comes where I go out to a restaurant with friends or something I will whatever looks good. Honestly, this only happens about once every two weeks if not three. I find that if you plan out a cheat meal for every week you tend to go off track for the surrounding days as well.
whatever the fuck I want to eat.
yeah , im using some of the basics from lyle's UD2.0 but without all of the detail and minutia. It's effective for now, and i'll tighten it up as necessary.
i dont see the point of a "cheat"
eat whatever you want in reasonable portions as long as it fits into your daily calorie allowance
if its food regarded as "bad" then obviously dont eat it everyday, but a couple of times a week assuming you work it into your food schedule will not hurt you
