    Nobody is going to be offended if you eat half a piece of pie instead of the whole piece. I plan on watching what I grab from the christmas party snack trays (which means I'll grab one of everything instead of two of everything this year... well... maybe ) but that's really about it. If I really let myself go and gain 5 pounds of pure fat over christmas, somehow, (hey, since I'll be lifting maybe my working sets will increase while it's happening instead of the fat pouring on) it will be gone by February. Learning how to cut has done so much for my peace of mind.

    I don't accept every invitation I get, and I take my calories WAY down on days where I'm not going to any type of party or holiday dinner. And I mean really down there--to about 1200. (I'm female, so that is not as insanely low on calories as it looks. Men can get away with quite a bit more than that, of course.) This strategy is a bit painful on the diet days, but it also allows me to have absolutely whatever I want on special occasions and parties without wrecking the fat loss effort.

    Squat 145 kg (320 lbs)
    Bench 67.5 kg (149 lbs)
    DL: 142.5 kg (314 lbs)

    ...oh, and I'm a girl.

    I started my cut after (Canadian) thanksgiving, and plan on starting a bulk come Christmas. I've been thinking about this for a while as you can tell.

    Unless you're totally binging for 5 weeks straight, then I'm not seeing the problem with letting yourself go for 2-3 days here and there.

    I'm bulking until after the holidays It really depends on your situation, but in reality, it's not like there's a huge, overladen table of pies and cookies in front of you for the whole five weeks. So you eat a few big (OK, HUGE meals) over the next month to month and a half--it won't kill you. It might, however, make you bigger and stronger

    Its the holidays. Enjoy them. I've been in California for 2 days, and pretty much ate nothing but crap. Yesterday I had 1/2 dozen donuts, 16oz steak, a box of cereal, 1/2 gallon of milk, assorted cookies, candies, etc. I'm going to enjoy my holiday.

    Eat everything you want on just Thanksgiving and Christmas. Nothing wrong with those 2 days.
    I can't wait for all of the gorging that will take place today.

    Don't obsess about 1 or 2 days of eating whatever. This could cause problems that you don't want to have. This is coming from someone who suffered from an eating disorder and still has some what disordered eating. I don't eat junk, at all, I've eaten clean for the past 2.5 years and even on thanksgiving and christmas during these times I haven't indulged at all. I'm letting loose a little more this year, but it's hard, and unless you've been through an ED you wouldn't know what it's like. but i wouldn't want to see anyone do that to themselves. I wouldn't wish an ED on my worst enemy, it really ****s you up physically and mentally for a long time.

    Just ate the last of the pumpkin pie and left over turkey for breakfast. Now its back on the same old grind till x-mas. Past few days were all probably 5000+ cal days, but who cares. Even if I put on 1lb of pure fat, it will be gone in a week.
