The Importance Of The Cheat Meal

cheat meal for weight loss

So listen to this…

Recently, my friend came up to me and asked for some advice.

She’s told me that she’s been working really hard to lose some weight. She knows that the warm weather is coming and she wants a body she can feel proud of at the beach this summer.

So she’s really been focusing on eating healthy and exercising and she’s made some progress.

But recently, she hit a stumbling block.

The scale stopped moving and she couldn’t figure out why.

So I started talking to her about what she was doing. And it didn’t take me very long at all to find the problem.

Because it’s a problem that a lot of people have.

You see, during the week, she ate great. She skipped all the processed junk and stuck to eating nutritious whole foods.

And when it came to exercising, she was equally as dedicated. She never skipped workouts and always gave it her all.

But on the weekends, all those good habits she had went out the window.

She considered her weekend time off… and used it to eat all those foods that she gave up during the week.

The ice cream, the potato chips, the donuts, the alcohol…

All those forbidden foods that tend to make us fat.

So all that eating healthy and exercising was being cancelled out by her unhealthy eating habits on the weekend!

But I understand why she was doing it.

She was looking forward to those foods all week.

Knowing she can eat them on the weekend is what motivated her to stick to her diet all week long.

And that’s great.

She was on the right track, she was just overdoing it.

But there’s a simple solution that lets you still enjoy those “forbidden” foods, without undoing all the hard work you put in.

In fact, this secret allows you to burn even more fat!

And I’m going to share it with you right now.

That solution is to have a cheat meal.

That’s one meal on the weekend… where you get to eat whatever you want.

Any food you want… and as much of it as you want.

Use this “cheat meal” to get all your cravings out of the way for the week.

Then once that meal is over, go back to your same healthy habits!

And when you do, you’ll find that you burn even more fat… because the extra fuel from the cheat meal actually boosts your fat-burning hormones and gives your metabolism a kick-start.

So start incorporating a “cheat meal” into your weekly eating plan. Because it’s the secret to being able to have your cake, and eat it too!
