You ever feel like a cheat day?
Today it felt like a cheat day for me.
While some weight loss gurus really forbid the cheat
day, I think it can help people stay on track. It is
something to look forward to.
You have to be smart about it though. You don’t want
a cheat day every week. I would say every month is
OK and I personally hold off for every 3 months.
You also can’t go totally crazy. I won’t sit around and eat
a load of junk food on a cheat day. I will still stay active
and I will limit myself to one or two of my favorite treats.
I also plan cheat days to land on holidays if possible. This
helps me avoid sneaking in an extra cheat day because
“it’s a holiday!”.
Lastly, make sure you don’t extend a cheat day into a
cheat week! A wayward cheat day has lead to the demise
of many a diet.
