I should work “cheat days” into my healthy lifestyle
Cheat days are a hot topic in the health world!
While they might help some people reach their goals, for others they can get in the way.
The fact is, no one can (or probably should) stick with a highly regimented diet 24/7, 365 days a year.
✅But for a lot of people, having an entire day every week when they gorge on “forbidden” foods (sweets, takeout foods, chips, etc.) can get in the way of their results.
Cheat days can also create an “either/or” mindset where you are either all-in or all-out when it comes to healthy eating habits. Plus, flooding your foods with minimal nutrition can leave you feeling tired and bloated.
👉If that sounds like you, a moderate approach might work better – eating a “reward” meal once or twice a week or working some treats (like favorite meals or snacks) into your regular routine so you never feel like you need a cheat day.
