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.
I always allow myself and my clients one cheat day per week (unless they are preparing for a BB/Figure contest). I have had feedback from my clients with their cheat day and it usually turns into a cheat meal…only one meal for the day and not the entire day.
We are only human and indulging in a food of our choice seems natural. I dont feel one can “blow” their eating program with one meal…rather a “blow” to their emotion/s of cheating.
