    Lately I've been having Breyer's No Sugar Double Churned Extra Creamy Ice Cream when I have calories left. I'm dieting on ~2300 cals with an average of 250g protein everday. On workout days I up my carbs to ~200g and lower the fats and on non-workout days I have ~150g carbs.

    As long as I get my protein for the day, I've been having 0.5-1.5 cups of ice cream a day for the hell of it. It's a good break from my diet and I'm still maintaining my macro breakdown.

    What do you guys have to keep yourself sane while dieting?

    i pretty much give myself a cheat day once a week, or a couple times a month depending on where i am in terms of reaching my monthly goals...

    too bad this month i lost some willpower so im guna have to scale back some on the cheat days next month.

    since i carb cycle (low for a couple, high(er) for a day, rinse and repeat) i feel that my carb refeed days are breaks enough for me, but on my cheat day ill go and a couple beers with my friends.

    meh.

    i've only truely cheated once since i started dieting january 20. i had a fried seafood platter from copeland's.

    since then, i've had a "bad" snack here and there and last night i had a 3x3 piece of cake at a friend's graduation party.

    every time i cheat i feel like shit afterwards so i don't do it that often. :o

    I don't really consider it cheating since I still stay within my calories and maintain my macro ratios. Other than the ice cream, I really only eat chicken, tuna, oats, salmon, tilapia, broccoli, ground beef, cheese, milk, eggs, etc. Everything else is in check so I don't think the ice cream is really hurting my dieting at all. At least, I hope it's not.

    Every 4 days I go high carb, but still keep it clean so that kinda helps. And then once or twice a week I will have a cheat meal which usually consists of pizza or a nice restaurant.

    I need to cut back the cheat meals to once a week though :hs:

    I know, it looks horrible...but it's quite delicious

    if you guys ever get lost and end up in canada, be sure to try one...you won't regret it...it'll just make you feel REAL guilty cause it's so unhealthy :hsd:

    Although it looks like a putrid pile of vomit, it's unfortunately pretty good.
