I like to plan one day a week where I basically eat whatever I want, and large amounts of it. It helps me through the week and gives me something to look forward to after eating good food all week.
I was wondering what everyone else does for their cheat meals. Do you do it when you feel like it, ...or plan it out, etc. Or it is something you only do when bulking?
BTW, tomorrow is cheat day for me

:evillaugh

When I was bulking I would have 2 cheat days a week. Usually Thursday and Saturday. Now that I'm cutting I'll throw in about 2 cheat meals a week instead of cheat days. Going to be hard b/c this is my first week cutting, and it's going to be hard for me not to eat whatever I want to tomorrow like I have been in the past 3 months.

These seem to be the best at it, although i have had a day when i prolly got down 15k cals :eek: I'm still unsure how i didn't fall into a coma...

Some have cheat meals once a week. I've tried this, but my cheat days are too extreme and it kinda has negative effects hha.

I now try to space them out as much as possible. I just keep going until i start getting shakes and cravings haha. Done 4.5 weeks so far...

For me they used to be planned, but not really anymore. They sorta just happen. It could consist of me slackin a little bit on one meal, then I say screw it and the rest of the day is a cheat day. :)

It all depends on the type of diet i'm on, if i'm doing a CKD, the "cheat" day is basically a carb up, so i just eat a lot of sugar and bread. The rest of the week i'm eating hamburger, fish, shrimp, bacon and stuff like that, so it feels like everyday is a cheat day :D

Right now, this is the first time I've stuck to a diet perfectly. I'm cheating this weekend for both Saturday and Sunday.

I plan on cheating for 2 days(weekend) every 3 weeks.

lol...thanks CD, glad my skills are finally recognized :)

Cheating I do not plan. Like chigs over here, I take it too far. But I think I once went about half a year without cheating and this was too far in the other direction. Therefore, I have the simple and cliched advice of "find a balance." Good luck :)

Subway is my mortal enemy, espeically on chest meals. I can pack 2 foot longs subs away with all the liquid in the world at one sitting. I am trying to train myself to feel sick at the thought of cheating. So far I cringe when I see/smell fast food. I also get extremely depressed when I cheat despite the 100mg of zoloft I take every day. Jsut trying to put that psych class I took in college to work.

For example, yesterday turned out to be a major cheat day for me. I was eatin all kinds of deserts and food at a dance last nite. I topped it off with a large Oatmeal Raisin cookie around 1:15 a.m. and a Bacardi Daqauri. :D

The best week of my life is the week after a comp. Oh my god I go wild really wild. It would shock some people. Cream cakes for breakfast, chocolate all day, pizza everynight sometimes two take aways.

hmm....well i have cheat days, and they are days when i eat whatever i want....but i've never been good with the overeating thing...so it's normal amounts of food. I definitely concur that cheat days are good for your mental state though.

I end up eating a carb-up refeed meal twice a week. Where I eat a huge bowl of spaghetti and 2 scoops of a favorite ice-cream. This is following the Natural Hormonal Enhancement Eating Plan.

I love the quote in your signature.

Thanks man,................Well, I had my cheat day saurday......burger king whopper and a big king and ice cream for "breakfast" (my work day starts at 5pm) Ate crap all night. I like it b/c it makes me realize how sheety my body feels when i eat crap, and why I eat like I do. I still can't help feeling really guilty like I have to burn everything off that day. But hey, it's just once a week for me.

I'm kind of glad winter is about over and my cheat days are pretty much over until next winter. Now I just include cheat meals and carb up days. Every cheat day I'd have during winter, I'd eat everything I was craving and I'd end up sick every cheat day I had.

I'm guessing you were kinda kidding around but in my opinion having a cheat day is hardly being a pansy. I think it's about having "fun" once in a while and even being being like "the rest of society" or whatever.

nah but seriously, i never had the need for cheat days, do u really hate what u eat that badly? I like tuna and chicken and stuff, i hate fast food, way too greasy, i despise snack food and sweets cause they feel weird. Restaurants take up way too much time and cost too much, so i prefer eating at home.

No, i never said I hate what I eat. But after a week, it's nice to have some different food.
