Is Having a Cheat Day Good for your Diet?

Is Having a Cheat Day Good for your Diet?

A lot of you have heard about the famous “cheat meal” in a diet. This a very big part of the Yes You Can! Weight loss program and here we’re going to learn why. The cheat day is a day on the week when you get to chose one meal and eat anything you want, pizza, cheeseburger, fries, chocolate cake or any other thing you can think of, without having to count calories, fat content or sugar. You can always include a Carb Blocker supplement.

It’s important to make it clear that this “cheat meal” is not for every process, it should only happen when we reach our ideal weight and we are at our maintenance period. If it’s done before, during the weight loss process, it will set us back on our goals significantly and it will slow us down on the way to our goals. One of the advantages of having it only during the maintenance period is that it becomes an extra motivation to get there; it’s a huge benefit that’s worth working extra hard for.

This meal is also a way to surprise our body and reignite our metabolism. The body is like a well-oiled habit machine, it gets used to everything after a while, include a balanced diet. When the body gets used to a diet our metabolism tends to slow down so we don’t burn calories as fast as before. Giving your body this extra workload in the cheat meal makes it “wake up” and start to function again.

Another one of the reasons is a little bit more psychological, remember your mental diet is just as important as your physical diet. This break that the cheat meal creates from your regular diet kills the monotony of it. With this meal we can be as creative as we want and eat anything we crave, releasing a little bit of the pressure of the rest of the week. Knowing that you have your cheat meal coming up on Friday or Saturday helps you avoid temptations during the rest of the week and that way you can keep focused on your goals.

Rewarding yourself is very important and the cheat meal is a way of doing this, it’s a prize for all the effort and work that you put in during the week. This type of short-term goal is an amazing way to keep your motivation up and not giving up. Tufts University in Boston proved that 95% of people who have a cheat meal during their diets reduce their appetite and their cravings for food that’s outside of their diet plan, this led to much more success in the process.

As always it’s important to take into account that nothing in excess is good, the cheat meal should just be done once a week and it can’t have a starter, entrée and dessert, you should choose just one. Pick the one you like the most and enjoy it! It’s also important to remember that your maintenance period should be accompanied by a steady movement routine and 100% natural supplements.
