My Question Regarding Cheat Day
Hello, I have a question regarding the cheat day. I know that you should have a cheat day (or a Cheat Meal) once a week and you are expected to gain some weight. I also know that the weight you gain on the cheat day is expected to go away in next 5-6 days (Sometimes before your next cheat day).
My question is:
By having a cheat day, The weight i am loosing following week ( ie 4lbs ) is what i have got from cheat day. So instead of loosing previous week's (ie 6lbs) + The fat which i am supposed to loose this week (ie 6lbs + 5lbs), I am just loosing weight which i have got due to a cheat day (+ a little extra)!! (ie 4lbs from cheat day + 2lbs this week)
Isn't is better to burn more body fat than burning the fat which you have got from cheat day? (By having a lot less of your choice of food on cheat day, not as Tim suggests to go nuts and have anything in any amount)
All i want to ask is what is your opinion on cheat day and how much do you think one should eat in order to keep the metabolism ball rolling!!
Tim specifically states that you may go absolutely bananas on your cheat day, something I'll say as an RN is are you weighing everyday? The human body can easily have fluctuations 3-6 pounds(more for females) in a day. For the best results, unless you have a health problem I prefer weighing once a week on the same day, at the same time, and admittedly nude to avoid clothing variances. I prefer to do it first thing in the morning after voiding. It helps me keep a good check of the weight I'm losing, also make sure you do not weigh the day after your cheat day as you will have huge spikes from retaining water, Tim recommends in the book to weigh the day of your cheat day before starting.
