    I've been dieting on 2300 cals for quite awhile now. I haven't had a cheat meal since April 8th when my parents were in town. While they were here I pretty much ate everything in sight for 3 days, but have been really strict since they left. I also doubled my cardio in the last 2 weeks.

    Would it actually be beneficial for my metabolism if I were to have a cheat meal such as going to a buffet and eating everything I could possibly fit in my stomach? I've been craving carbs and sweets the last few days and it would be a nice mental break to go to golden corral and splurge. I know it won't hurt me in the long run, but is it actually beneficial or am I just trying to justify it to myself?

    First of all golden corral is NASTY zipperhead buffet is where it is at!

    And this depends on how much food you can puit away in one sitting.

    It's the only buffet I've seen around here :hs: Last time I went I wasn't terribly impressed, but it's food and there's lots of it.

    I'm sure I could eat a shitload, especially considering the desserts.

    Either way, would it be beneficial at all? Give a boost to the metabolism or any of that good shit?

    a single day of cheating will not be beneficial for your metabolism

    Who said it was? I wasn't implying it is when I was talking to fatdude. I was just saying I don't need fancy food to enjoy the food I'm eating.

    nobody said it was, but it is consistantly good here int exas atleast. I know I can go there and pretty much always walk away thinking man, that "Tasty meat here" was good.

    Ahh. I get the frozen shit that's $15 for 6.5 lbs. I didn't really consider that it's already cooked.

    I've found 1 cheat meal a week to be beneficial. Don't go from 2300 to 7000 calories a day. It would be good to maybe bump up your calories to around 3000-3100 once a week, but don't go too crazy with junk food - you want to maintain decent macronutrient profiles.
