I have never liked sweets or sugary foods. But Nutella is my weakness and I succumb to it once a week. I have been sticking to a very clean diet and have gotten amazing results. For the first time since I was 20 I have a 6 pack and I feel great.
I always worry that having my one pig out day (Sunday) will mess up my hard week of workouts and good diet, but it seems to do the opposite. My body seems to lean out even more after I go on my sugar and carb binges on Sunday. I still don't stuff myself with food until I am exploding, but I eat until I am REALLY full and will usually have Nutella crepes for breakfast and pizza in the afternoon with something to snack in the evening. I don't even stick to the 5-6 smaller meals a day rule.
During the week I eat LOTS of vegetables, fruit and chicken breast. I do a lot of whole wheat wraps with chicken breast and I put a lot of vegetables and guacamole in there. Egg white omelets with one yoke and sliced chicken breast.....well you get the idea.
What I can't understand is why I am leaning out even more after each Sunday. I actually don't want to get any leaner, as I am happy with my body fat right now, and overall I think I am stagnating when it comes to it, except for after my sugar and carb binge.
Had anyone experienced anything like this and if so, do you know why it happens. I would be very curious to find out. I am really trying to learn as much as I can about diet, not only for muscle building, but even more so for health reasons.
