Default 34 days, no cheat....yet?

OK, I am cutting to lose about 12 pounds of fat. I have been 34 days with no cheating whatsoever, I have went from 193 to 184 and feel great. My goal is about 175 or so.


I want to have a cheat meal but feel it is not needed. I was thinking of a 1000 calorie cheat meal for PWO every 6th day. The meal would be fat free and sugar sugar based, like a whol half gallon of fat free ice cream of something like that.

What do you think, forget it or do it. I think it could give me some rejuvenation each week and a little pop for lifting.

I am very low carb. 100 grams on workout days, zero on non workout days and I am on a 1 on, 1 off split.

I can't think of a good reason not to do it.

Have a little fun food. You made some great progress and deserve a little break... But just a little. Sometimes it can sneak up on you.

Thanks for the replies. I am a serious endo who used to be 290+ punds, so needlesss to say, I know how to eat.

I used to have a 5000+ calorie cheat day (low fat) every single Sunday to get to 190 pounds but lately I am real motivated to eat healthy and clean but I figure since I do 50 minutes of fasted cardio EVERY morning and lift on average 4 days a week for 35 minutes each and low carb, a 1000-1200 calorie cheat meal every 6th day just cannot do any damage and may be beneficial.

Thanks again guys, I am heading out to get a Blue Bunny half gallon of Fat Free chocolate ice cream and substitue it for my PPWO meal of rice and chicken.

I think 34 days is too long to be sub maintenance. You should be cheating more like once a week or at least once every 2 weeks.

My 2 cents.

I plan on a bigger cheat meal every 6th day, that is not enough? It will come about 1 hour after a workout and be low fat/fat free so maybe some, or most will get stored as glyco.

Do you think a 6-8 hour carb load would be more benficial, something like an influx of 2-3000 calorie of low fat foods of my choosing with some oats thrown in to the mix to be "semi helathy"

You can do the short refeed IMO. You want high GI carbs though. I wouldn't do the oatmeal personally.

when I used to do a carb load, I just ate whatever I wanted from hi gi low fat carbs (cereal, bread, etc.) for about 6 hours. Grazed and crammed but I am not sure how good force feeding like that is.


It woked well, got lean slowly but I keep most mass.

I have also tried the 1 hour "pigout" every 6 days with decent results. It was basicly eat for about 1 hour straight until super full with boxed cereals, fat free ice cream, grilled cheese with far free cheese,mac and cheese. I really looked forward to that 1 hour and it keep me very motivated.

So you say that this 1 hour gorge fest can actually be beneficial to keeping/gaining mass while dieting?

I am 6 foot, 184 pounds and eat 2100 calories on workout days and 1900 on non workout, this has gone on for 34 days.
