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.
Your body cannot continuously work on a low calorie diet. you need to re feed and re fuel your body from time to time. I would recomend a “splurge meal” not a cheat meal- as you are not cheating or doing something bad- you are just increasing your calories a bit which will in fact boost your metabolism. it is actually helpful to do so. If you continually keep your calories low, your body will become used to that and eventually your body will require less on a day to day basis.
