    Cheat Day

    Hey People!

    I have been on a very strict diet whilst trying to shread my body fat. So far so good. The only guilty think ive had is 300mls of Gatorade (For my calf cramps).

    At this stage I dont feel like its nessasary to have a cheat day, but I wanted to know what you guys think? Is it nessasary?

    If you guys have a cheat day what rules do you follow?

    I guess im scarred of enjoying it and falling into my old routines.

    Cheers Guys

    I have only just started my diet since beginning of January and have eaten things I wouldn't have eaten normally (previously I was eating ALOT of junk food etc.), but after reading a lot on here it seems that it's okay to indulge every now and then. I'm personally limited myself to one awesome (junk) meal every two weeks. Last weekend was my first so I had a curry from a local curry house, in two weeks time I'll have a Nandos!

    Think the idea is just to be careful and sensible, whether cheat meal, or day.

    Eat foods you like every day, then every day is a cheat day. There is no need to restrict your diet to bland unappetizing foods you don't like. You need to be able to structure a diet with foods you like eating or you will never have long term success.

    That seems fair. All comes down to self control I guess. I dont see a problem, but I just dont want to over do it. Thanks Dude.

    Yeah will do nicklyne

    I have one cheat day a week on friday's, I am losing weight at 2000 cals a day but I'll eat up to 3500 calories on my cheat day. I am still losing weight weekly and while it may slow down my progress a little, its totally worth it.

    See all above posts. You can IIFYM, and/or you can have cheat days. From OP it sounds like you think you're supposed to be having a cheat day for some dietary reason. Until you are incredibly lean (and especially if you're doing keto), there's no real reason to do it other than going absolutely insane with hunger OR it's Christmas (or some other day where you're socially expected to indulge... maybe a work party or something?)
