cheat meal:bloomin’ onion bread

When it comes to getting fit, diet is public enemy No. 1. It’s the hardest part of fitness—especially in the long run. Don’t get me wrong, trudging on the treadmill before sunrise or squatting your body weight after a hard day of work can be rough, but not giving in to the urge to clean out half the pantry can be even harder. I have a huge sweet tooth that leads me to crave sugar, but I’m able to resist thanks to two wonderful words: cheat meal.

Don’t get me wrong, for most of the week sweet potatoes are my caramelized candy, but that doesn’t mean I’m always on a clean diet. Yes, I cheat. I use the 90/10 rule to maintain sanity but, even more important, I use it as a dietary tool. When used correctly, cheat meals can be a great tool to help carve your physique. They can reset hormones responsible for metabolism and insulin regulation, replenish glycogen for increased energy, and keep calorie-burning and fat-torching mechanisms high.

I tend to cook my cheat meals at home. In this, I always know exactly what I consume. Restaurants are notorious for adding sugar, salt, butter, and cream to food and, although you can make requests, there’s no guarantee that they’re followed. Cooking at home leaves nothing to chance.

TIP:SCHEDULE CHEAT MEALS

The best way to cheat is to plan ahead! Remember that, while cheat meals are meal replacements, they need to fit into your current eating regimen. Cheat meals allow you to satisfy cravings and give you a chance to loosen the reigns a bit, but they shouldn’t turn into cheat days. They also shouldn’t be a reason to eat less than you normally would at other meals.

The purpose of the cheat meal is to add extra calories to your current plan. Skipping meals before or after could end up limiting you cheat meal’s effectiveness and ultimately backfire on you, causing you to become overly hungry and overindulge in your cheat. Avoid this potential pitfall by knowing the logistics behind your cheat meal. Pick a meal that will allow you to indulge without going overboard. Personally, I prefer to replace dinner with my cheat meal. I’ve found that this limits my tendency to want to snack the rest of the day, which is not the case when I opt to indulge at breakfast 😀

 

With this being said…LET’S GET IT STARTED!!!
