Cheating on your diet once a week
I usually have on meal a week that is bad for me. I meen like a pizza or wings, Mcdonalds or something. Will this effect me negativeley if my diet it good the rest of the week?

This is actually a very good thing for you. I limit myself to 1 meal a week myself. I find that this stops me from bingeing(sp) and also helps fill me out a bit. You will also find that this will help you to continue to make progress in your diet.

If your current goal is to cut bodyfat, definitely limit yourself to 1 cheat meal a week where you can eat whatever you want.
If your goals are to bulk up and add muscle, cheating several times a week isn't gonna hurt you. When I'm bulking, I still maintain a strict diet of clean foods, but I will cheat a little 3-4 days out of the week.

I think what Pumpseeker was saying is that when bulking... eat! Yes, make sure you get your six to seven clean meals in a day... anything over that is added calories for bulking! Now when cutting, different story!

i too have to admit i cheat, i always justify it by thinking the extra calories in that burger are helping!

I cheat once a week while bulking and cutting I carb up once a week,not sure if that's cheating though.

Without a cheat meal..the thyroid and metabolism can deregulate..good to keep a cheater once a week..instead of a day keep it to a meal.

I agree with you daman1. I cheat every fifth day.
Cheat to WIN.

i agree with daman1 too. i read a few places that one cheat day a week is good for speeding up your metabolism. and thats the whole day not just one meal. but when you eat good 6 days a week its kinda hard to cheat all day long on your cheat day. for me it is anyways.

I meet this ex g/f in a motel at least once a week. She does this thing with her.................... Oh I mean yea like Bama said with out cheating you will shut your thyroid down and slow the process of fat loss. I have a cheat day once a week.

1 cheat day a week is what i do when cutting. Keeps me sane

i used to diet insainly strict as to where i nearly had to have a cheat meal in order to keep from going crazy.. now i just keep a clean moderate diet and have a "cheat" meal as a reward, every so often (maybe 1 in a week to wekk and 1/2). i find that keeping my diet this way frees me from having those insatiable cravings- and allows me to keep a more consistant eating plan.. works for me anyway...
