I have been on a very strict low calorie, low fat and high protein diet for the last 2 an 1/2 months along with a strict cardio and weight training routine. I have not strayed but starting to feel the little temptations of a meal that reminds my taste buds the flavor of "being naughty ". The fear is that I have had very good success these last two months and I don't want to lost any hard work but at the same time that same fear makes me wonder if I should reflect on an other issue of being over obsessed with results and not learn proper "normal out of program" moderation etc. Any help would be much appreciated.
Positive: because you deserve it. You’re dedicated to your work-outs. You’ve learned to discipline yourself through your training regimen. You deprive yourself of a lot of things to maintain your strength and health. I don’t know how old you are, but it doesn’t matter because you never know when it’s your time to punch out and go to the Big Gym in the Sky. So, treat yourself to something you like every now and then and don’t feel guilty about it–just don’t go on a binge, you’re too disciplined for that. Treating your taste buds to a burger and an ice-cold beer is as important as treating your muscles to a day off.
