Cheat Day: Everyone’s Favorite Excuse
I wrote a post about cheat days, which have been around in concept for a long time but suddenly become a trendy diet topic thrown around recently, thanks in part to Tim Ferriss’ Four Hour Body book.
Some people agreed with my points on cheat days, but others were mad at me. They blame me for trying to take away their favorite carb indulgences!
But I have no interest in taking away anything from anyone.
I just want to point out what you are setting yourself up for when you implement cheat days in your diet. Basically, you are setting yourself up for failure.
You know how many cheat days I have in my diet?
I don’t count, because I “cheat” nearly every day!
Rather than “go on a diet”, and attempt to implement a short term solution to getting into shape, consider a lifestyle change that will leave you with more energy, put you in a better mood, and allow you to not even want to feed your body junk for 24 hours! This is not a diet and you won’t have any guilt if you have an unhealthy food item, or even a couple of unhealthy meals.
Your body doesn’t know what day of the week it is!
The idea is to incorporate health into your life permanently. A great way to do this is via the sentence completion plan in the back of our Healthy Mind Fit Body book. The time investment is minimal as compared to how much better you will look and feel! Excuses like cheat days will no longer stop you from getting down to your perfect weight.
