Do you incorporate a cheat day into your diet regimen to help you get over your cravings and get refocused on your diet and goals?
If so, what do you do? If not, why?
I'm not sure I should be asking the question four days into my own diet, but here it is anyway. Thanks everybody!
I don't exactly incorporate a cheat 'day' into my Weight Watchers plan, but I often snack at night without tracking it, and consider it 'cheating', and fool myself into thinking it's OK to take care of that little bit of craving like that.
However, after months of doing this and not losing an ounce more in the past 4 months (just before my last cruise) than the initial 28 lbs I lost last year, I realize I am only cheating myself, and wasting all the other time I am doing so well.
What I am trying to get my mindset back to now is that if I am going to do all that snacking all night, I'm going to have to make it part of the plan, and track it. Or if I NEED to have something that's a real splurge for me, I should just plan for it - sticking to lots of fruits, veggies, water, and some lean protein throughout the day - enough to make me not starving, but have plenty of WW points (or calories according to your plan) for that splurge.
There shouldn't be any food on a weight loss plan that is cheating, quantity and planning is the key! NOW IF I CAN ONLY TAKE MY OWN ADVICE!!
