View Full Version : Stating the obvious but.....

Just a thought....
I myself eat clean all the time (even now eating sashimi when it is 35 plus outside...thats tough) but I know a lot of people who have an "anything goes" cheat day, as in eat any crap you want all day.
This amouts to 52 days a year thats almost 2 months of the year wasted eating ****...Thats insane.
Isn't it better to eat clean all the time no matter how hard it is?
Guess it depends on just how bad you want your physique to change.
I know a lot of people would go crazy if you didint eat a little bit of crap but a whole day of it?
Just my 5 cents.

yes eating clean is better!

but having a cheat day once and awhile makes no difference!

I think cheat days are more for cutting. You need that one day where you get alot carbs etc.

I find on my 'cheat' days I eat less calories overall... it's just the ones I get are crap (loaded with sodium, saturated fats, etc). Satisfies the craving for a fast food combo for a while, though.

Stay clean all the time then eventually the want and need for these bad foods goes away and all you know is how to eat clean

i agree with getfit.. and also gutz actually.

my cheat days aren't days where i eat absolutely anything i want and don't take caloric intake into consideration.. so i don't think they will kill. but i still prefer to try and stay clean all the time because i find that the more i eat cheat food, the more i want to cheat! after not having anything i consider cheat food for awhile, i don't feel any desire to eat it and actually prefer to stick to good old oats and chicken breast.

My cheat days are free-for-alls. The worst part is what happens to my bowel the next day. <cringes>

My cheat days are 100% worth it to me. It's like my reward for doing good all week and it keeps me going. Without them I would go crazy. Not to mention I feel stronger the day after a cheat day.

P.S. Girls don't poop!

Cheat days are more to "help you stay sane."

I know if it weren't for cheat days/meals, I would have quit awhile ago. There are times you just can't say no to the urges for tasty, fatty, bad for you foods.

Cheat days rock, just not too many of them.

Saturday was my worst cheat day yet.

4 Am, 2 Big bowls of wheaties, skim milk
7 Am, IHOP ham/cheese omelet with pancakes
11 Am, Bjs Buffalo Chicken pizza (2/3rds of a large), Avocado Egg rolls, Cookie/Icecream
7 Pm, Mimi's Cafe Teryaki Chicken dinner
8 Pm, 1/4 Marie Calenders Coconut Cream Pie

Felt good to be bad.

Unless you are in the woods, miles away from the nearest facility...then they do. It's like clock-work.

LMAO, that makes two of us.

I don't have a cheat day per se'. But I do have cheat meals - just one per week. Usually, something like a double meat Chick-Fil-A, or a big nasty artery clogger like a triple meat cheeseburger.
