so, every 4-8 weeks i have a cheat day, except of course the couple times in between when i get drunk and feel like eating some t-bell or candy. But besides that its really strict. So my fav cheat situation is when i have been going hard for 8 weeks, not missed a workout..not cheated but once or twice and lost about 20 lbs....and am craving some food...but not real food....like popcorn candy....amazing.

so i got about 2 weeks left and im gonna go to the movies get a huge bucket of popcorn...some chewy candy(licorice, swedish fish, gummy bears...my fav) a bag of m and m's and get a nice big diet pop and go to town at the movie theater. Thats my favorite

I say you buy all the candy in bulk on the outside and then sneak it in.

If I'm gonna cheat it's gonna be classy, like going to a nice Italian restaurant and ordering a big plate of pasta with cream sauce and all the fixings, a Caesar salad, and eating all the breadsticks I want. For desert, I'm thinking uber-rich chocolate cheesecake with an espresso on the side, or something to that effect.

I'm also perfectly content to go to Cracker Barrel.

4-8 weeks? LOL Jesus that's awesome. I cheat at least twice a week, downing on average 10k calories on said cheat days. No ill effects to speak of.

yeh I also prefer going to a nice restaurant, its still not garbage food... I just can't find the taste/results in me to eat garbage food like candy/ice cream/frieds stuff in massive quantities. For candy I will have a piece of lindt or something every blue moon and that settles me. If its ice cream I will eat like a cone on a hot ass day of walking around and take some protein with it. Like the other poster I'd much prefer a nice restaurant and then just eat a "lot" of quality food.... my favorite would be sushi. I haven't had just a cheat "day" in a few years now, I already know where that result is, just feeling like total ass. I always balance when I abstain from my normal diet and I think things just work out easier that way, especially since I know how to manipulate the rest of my macros/calories for the day and time these things too, everything in moderation. If an event comes up with friends that food selection is not going to be optimal, out at a restaurant, out for dinner, holidays, I will just eat and enjoy myself. Thats why I never plan cheats, I just don't worry about it and go about my business when it happens. Binging does nothing but make me feel like crap for a few days.

lol it sure does - unless your that jerk like me who smuggles in a proper meal. Like wedges w/ sourcream+sweet chili and a burger that everyone else gets to enjoy the smell of.

Those were the fun fat days where some peanut M&M's would likely follow up that snack.

I think you know your a little neurotic when u take to the movies a homemade tuna+brown rice salad lol. I was watching 300 a few weeks ago and broke out the tupperware :o

10k calories twice a week is 20,000 calories...divided by 7 is a little under 3000 extra cals per day...no ill effects? Do you eat anything besides your cheat meals?

Best cheat situation? A lot of money and a grocery store nearby, with a bakery, of course.

I felt like that too at the club last night, or whenever I go out, not quite tupperware, but I definitely broke out a protein bar I had in my pocket and ate it real quick... My friend was like wtf? I just told them it was a candy bar :P Whats worse than having bad food choices at a bar, is being in one that doesn't even have food at all and you are in there like 5-6 hours.
I've been known to take packs of nuts too. Maybe next time I will take a ziplock bag of chicken an d brown rice then just squeeze it down my mouth.

my ideal cheating situation is a trip away with friends where i dont look to be particularly gluttonous or healthy but rather just eat what everyone else is eating and drink what everyone else is drinking and not worry about anything cept having a good time.

The nutrient partitioning effects are great!! Try a pwo shake followed by a big cheat meal afterwards for best results.
