Do You Make These 5 Cheat Meal Mistakes?

If you want to know the 5 biggest cheat meal mistakes you can make as well as the “rules” for cheating without getting fat, then you want to listen to this episode.

Sometimes it feels great to just let go.

To stop striving and trying to control everything and just give in to your impulses.

You know…to just “be human” now and then.

When it comes to dieting, we all know what that means: ignoring the plan and “cheating.”

No counting calories. No estimating macros. And no worrying about what you are and aren’t “supposed” to eat.

There are quite a few opinions on cheating.

Some people believe that even mild deviations from your diet plan can prevent you from reaching your goals.

Others are of the mind that you can stray so long as you don’t turn to certain forbidden foods.

Others still just throw caution to the wind and gorge on anything and everything their hungry little hearts desire.

All of these people are misguided.

You certainly can have “cheat meals” without ruining your progress and you don’t have to stick to a short list of “approved” foods, but you can’t eat yourself unconscious every week without paying a price.

And that’s what this episode is going to be all about:

How to get maximum enjoyment out of your cheat meals while simultaneously minimizing the downsides.

In fact, when done correctly, cheating can ultimately make it easier to stick to your diet and see results.

Yes, you can have your cake and eat it too. 🙂

Let’s find out how…
