How many of you have used the term “𝐜𝐡𝐞𝐚𝐭 𝐝𝐚𝐲” in the past?
What did that day lead to?
• Eating a bunch of “bad foods” (more on that later!)?
• An all or nothing mindset?
• Turned into a “cheat weekend”?
• “I already ate like crap so I may as well enjoy the weekend and start fresh Monday”.
How did that day make you feel?
• Physically: pretty crummy?
• Mentally: did you beat yourself up after for losing control?
• Aesthetics: did you feel like your wrecked all of your hard work.
🔅Remember, just like one healthy meal can’t make you lean, one meal of burgers and fries won’t ruin everything!
Let’s get rid of the term “cheat day”! It’s not good for any of us!
Instead, there are a couple of different ways to approach it:
1. We find a “diet” that allows those “cheat foods” to fit into your week. ⬇️
2. If we are tracking macros, we plan ahead of time so that instead of blowing our “diet”, the burger actually helps us to hit our protein, fat, and carbs for the day! Yes a burger and fries 𝘤𝘢𝘯 help you reach your goals!
3. We can also get lots of lean protein and veggies the rest of the day so that it’s just one high calorie meal rather than three! Just because you have pancakes for breakfast doesn’t mean you need a full day of pizza and burgers too!
4. Find your meal choices bringing you way under on protein for the day? Grab a healthy protein supplement like @sfh. (Check out @enduranceapparelandgear And use code “roberts15” for a discount!)
Side note: If your diet doesn’t allow you to eat foods that you enjoy, is it something you can survive on long term??
DM me and let’s talk about ways to fix that!
What are some of your favorite foods that you can’t live without?
Me personally? Pizza, burgers, cinnamon rolls, cake….There’s a reason I track macros and make sure my favorite item’s fit.. 🍕🍔🍰Because I have too many favorites 😂😂
