As I continue my weight loss and fitness journey, I strongly believe that it’s important to display moderation and balance in every aspect of the journey. Especially, when it comes to eating habits. Some people refer to what many call “cheat meals” or “cheat day”.
We’ve seen and heard many say, “I’m dieting… I can’t eat that or they feel as though they’re banned from enjoying any of the foods they used to enjoy. The way I look at it, cheat days, or cheat meals are for people on diets. In my mind, I have chosen a lifestyle change, not a diet. I’m not cheating, I’m making healthy lifestyle changes and displaying balance in what I choose to eat and how often. As I’ve made changes in my diet, I’ve cut back tremendously on breads, starches and sugar. However, I still enjoy these things in moderation.
