Daily tip #32| How to cheat

Cheating can be a great pressure valve to release yourself once in a while, you can only eat rice, chicken and steamed vegetables for so long before you pig out on creamy, frosty and sweet stuff. Let me walk you through on how to properly cheat without destroying all of your work just because of a small temptation..


What you first should realise is that a cheat meal is not a cheat DAY. It should not be two pizzas and two six packs of beer - it should just be two or three slices of pizza and a few beers.

In my opinion, everyone should have a cheat meal atleast once a week. You might go a week without it, then go on the second week, and then the third week the pressure will make you explode into and eating frenzy, ruining a few weeks if not a month of your work, also demotivating you greatly.




Do not let that happen to you, have atleast one cheat meal per week, even if you feel like you don't need it. A cheat meal is designed to prevent the binging, it is not a scheduled meal, so have it whenever you feel like, it is a safe way to get that kick up your behind to get you going on your regular plan again, because I'm sure you'll feel just a tad bit guilty after having it, making you want to keep on eating better.


Do NOT have more than TWO cheat meals per week. One is good, Two are okay, Three is a NO. Remember, a cheat meal is not a cheat day! I know what goes through ones mind when they crave, I really used to crave all the time while starting out, I had cheat days and random cheat meals all throughout the week - it went nowhere, I achieved nothing. It was like I wasted my time and work all for nothing. Then, I realised I can continue on with my plan while releasing the pressure with just two random cheat meals per week.


Have anything you want, but do not have the whole thing. Pizza? Have a few slices. A six pack of beer? Have half.

Got it? Okay, good.


Do not forget to drink a lot of water, not underestimate sleeping properly, stop making common mistakes to become happier!

I haven't cheated in about a month.. But.. I'm not really craving anything either. I guess it has to be infront of me for the cravings to kick in.

I'm supplementing with beer at the moment, only for the extra protein of course

Hasidic Plumber said...

That's good advice. What most nutriotionist teach you is that you shouldn't be on a diet you can't sustain throughout the time, because sooner or later, you will explode and eat without control hahaha

I think this is the hardest part of being on a diet. The impulse to eat a bucket load of food.

Makes a lot of sense but I wonder how many people have enough will power to not turn it into a cheat day.

Reilly said...

but i need the beer to survive :(

Movies on my Mind said...

I was very proud the other day when I turned down the offer to eat some KFC. I have demonstrated a level of will power few people have.

MRanthrope said...

I eat so much random junk its not even funny =/

Bart said...

lol this doesnt help at all, cheat tips for tests would be better. also two pizzas and 24 beers is the best.

Ruth said...

Whoah, man you drive a hard bargain - I think I love my sweets too much :L

DEZMOND said...

It's kinda a sad thing if one pizza a week can ruin a week of training so you just have to limit yourself to two or three slices.

Max Power said...

it's good to know that i can cheat, and i have been eating half a pastrami sandwhich and maybe a burger once aweek. It's working good so far. I wouldn't want to diet if i couldn't cheat once in a while.

Lord Phrozen said...

I just came back from a party and ate a whole pizza.

Check my blogroll

Neatfit: "do not have the whole Pizza"

you are so right, i think a cheatmeal a week is really okay because you can´t resist all the time and without being frustrated with your diet;)
