I understand that making a complete change in your diet is most effective, by this I mean not cheating with crap food. I just want to know if what I'm doing actually negating my efforts in cutting and loosing the flab.
Right now I'm cutting at 2500 cals. I eat the same thing everyday for 6 days. My cheat is on a lifting day, and I lift in the evening on this day. One way I cheat is by eating the same from breakfast to just before lifting in the evening (The same as my regular diet). Then I eat pizza, or something with cheese...love cheese...for dinner. I make sure that I get all my protien and good fats.
The second kind of cheat day is me making sure I get my fats and protiens from shakes, and from morning to evening I eat crap. Dipping a couple snicker bars into peanut butter (not natty), scrambled eggs with WHITE bread and butter, donutes and other pastries and I top it off with something that has cheese, nacho's (Something that would feed 2 or 3 people).
My calories end up somewhere around 4500 to 5000 at times. I do this right now to keep from cheating during the week. I hope to make it into JUST a cheat meal, and then eventually not cheats expcet the special occasion. I have a cheat day coming up this weekend and I wonder if I should just add a little something (cheese) to my chicken dish instead of eating the other crap.
