Thread: Free Day/Meal
11-19-2003, 01:40 PM #1
Whats up guys.
I was just curious how many of yall actually have free days or meals during your diets. I know I do on the weekends. I try for one free meal a week but sometimes have to turn in into nearly a day. Do you think that is bad? What exactly is a free meal anyways? Something different but just as healthy or just a meal that you wouldnt usually eat but reward yourself with?

If 1-3 of your 42 meals a week is bad I don't think it will hurt your goals. Actually, I think its a good idea to have a cheat meal/day (of cours depending on your metabolism and goals) once a week to keep your metabolism is from getting stuck in a steady comfort zone.
I have a cheat day once a week right now and I'm loosing about 1-2 lbs a wk. And this is coming from a guy who puts on fat just by looking at junk. My cheat day ranges from eating pizza, snickers bars, garlic bread, and whatever else I'm in the mood for at the time.

Im on the SEE FOOD diet.
Id rather eat food that is in front of me than not eat any food at all. Too hard to ALWAYS be at my house for my food.

Cheat days are great. Allows you to overeat and the excess cals refills glycogen stores in your muscles.

Depending on my class schedule and work schedule i mess around with my second post workout meal and put in some low GI carbs, but i usually work out late and dont want to have too many carbs in me for my last meal before bed. Starting in Jan. I'm going with Swole Cat and I'm sure many things will be tweaked. Saturday is an off day.
