    Hey guys, quick question. If any of you have been paying attention I'm trying to cut down to about 200lbs and/or >15% body fat. Right now I'm at about ~214 and 18% body fat, But I'm making steady progress.

    The question is, If I have a high calorie meal in the day, what do I do for the rest of the day? Usally I'm trying to eat 4-5 smaller meals a day, and to keep my calories lowish, and I do some light cardio every day.

    For instance, this morning, I went out with my wife and we had breakfast. I had bannana pancakes with a little syrup, hashbrowns, and a glass of OJ. For all I know, this meal had 1500 calories (just a guess) and I still have ~3 more meals to eat today. Do I not eat? do I just have a piece of fruit? what is the best approch?

    high protein, low calories.... lots of tuna, chicken breast, etc

    or just don't worry about it, it's not going to kill you to eat at/over maint. for one day.

    Yea, but if I let myselft cheat a little bit every day or every other day then it does add up. I'm trying to lose 2lbs every week without losing any muscle.

    if you overeat on one meal, the others have to be taken away from if you are set on making a certain level of calories each day

    you are cutting, dont cheat that much, just have one cheat meal a week and you will be fine. If you expect to lose 2 pounds a week then you should be dedicated enough to not cheat every single day.
