Today I want to share some learning experiences I found this week about a "cheat day".
Do not be afraid of "cheating". To have a cheat day set up properly can actually help you stay focused and get along with your weight loss journey with evergreen motivation. Let's look at some reasons behind it. Why do you want to lost weight?
- you want to be more healthy
- you want to look fit
- you extra weight bothers you all the time
Basically you want to be happier, so why can't you make life a little easier for yourself?
Here is what I do. I set up a cheat meal every 7 to 10 days as soon as I meet a mile stone - according to my strategy plan.
I only estimate the total calorie from that meal and usually I will gain weight from that single meal, which takes 1-2 days to get back to the same weight level before the meal. One secret to get rid of the extra weight from the meal fast is to drink lots of water, I mean, a lot! To a point that you need to go to washroom every 30-40 minutes.
Here is what happened for this week. I lost 2.6 in first 3 days, so I went for a cheat meal. It then takes me 2 days to go back to the previous weight level and 1 day to lose 0.8 more pounds, but it's fun. It's all about recharge the power and continue going.
Let me know what you think and please share your thoughts as well.
