A lot of people that are trying to lose weight have what they call "cheat meals" or "cheat days". Pause for a second and think about that.
What are you cheating on?
The diet you're following?
If your way of eating is so restrictive that you feel the need to "cheat" on it, how do you think that might pan out over the long term?
Now I'm no eating disorder expert. Never will be. But if you're approaching food with that way of thinking, it might lead to a less healthy relationship with food.
If you're having cheat meals or days, you might feel guilty with what you've eaten. But why should you?
Why should you have guilt surrounding you for eating something you enjoy such as a burger or cake?
By not having cheat meals, I'm not saying you shouldn't eat what's typically considered as a cheat meal.
I still eat burgers, cakes, chips, ice cream, pizza etc... But it's done in moderation.
That's why I'm much more of a fan of an inclusive approach. Not labelling foods I enjoy as "cheats" or having guilt around them.
Are you having a "cheat meal" today?
