I think cheat days are fine.My theory is, if you deprive yourself of something you are really wanting or craving, when you finally give in you might end up eating/drinking WAYYYY more than you normally would! It's all about portion control!Since you are still keeping up with your calories even during your little cheat times, I think it's okay. I think you can have a cheat day with Karla.Just keep up with everything still.And remember portion control!Once you eat, wait about 30 minutes to give it time to digest before seconds, you might not even need or want seconds by then! Don't be too hard on yourself, gotta have a little wiggle room! :)
I don't usually drink alcohol either due to outrageous calories but when your dad gives you a free drink coupon for your airplane ride, you just can't say no! ;)
I don't think I could stick to a diet plan without cheating a little. Especially if you're working so hard for a goal, you deserve to treat yourself. My weakness is craft beer. I'm on myfitnesspal and I've realized some of my favorite beers are between 200-300 calories! Yikes! I did watch a Dr. OZ episode with past contestants from the biggest loser and the two sisters said they plan a cheat day together so that way can work hard and look forward to the day that they can have what they want.
I think it's okay to cheat a little because the thing is if you never cheat at all you'll just explode and go to town on everything. Allowing yoruself a little freedom here and there allows you to be more faithful in the long wrong! Just found your blog and have loved getting to know you better. I'm excited to follow along!new follower :)bonniethelifeofbon.com
