Cheat Days

The best time to have a cheat day is over the weekends, especially if you are doing meal preps throughout the weekdays. You don’t want to limit yourself by not having a day to enjoy what you love to eat. Keep in mind, however, that you don’t want to make it a habit of being inconsistent with your healthy diet. Here are some ideas that could help you.

  1. Put it on your calendar! Make your cheat days full of excitement! This way, when you are close to the weekends, you have something to look forward to and know the perfect dates to make plans out with friends and family for your reward meals! If you don’t want your cheat days to be every weekend – then put the days of each month on when you want your cheat days to be.
  2. If you never have a cheat day to enjoy the foods you like to eat, you can easily overdo it. The inconsistency of not having a cheat day will cause your body to crave more of the foods you want and cause you to end up binge eating. Make sure you relax and enjoy treating yourself from time to time!
