    your not gonna go professional.. and one day of eating junk isnt gonna hinder ur gaines.. just thrrow in one extra day of cardio or something! i just ate 6 breadsticks and had rootbeer im behind a protien shake for the day so im gonna try to catch up b4 bed. anyways lookin ripped in ur avatar so i wouldnt worry.

  3. Try scheduling a cheat MEAL (not day) once a week or so, rather than binging on crappy food for an entire day once a month.

    i agree. i do cheat meals for lunch on weekends only - so 2 cheat meals per week. this keeps the monotony from setting in. cheating more than that is counterproductive IMO.

  5. It depends on your goals. But if you're not competing, I don't see any particular reason to be so strict with your diet that it leads to a binge.

  6. the problem is that once i start i cant stop so thats why i do a cheat day......
    but i've noticed that after a cheat day i perform better the following day in the gym....

    Probably because you want to make up for all the crappy foods...Heavily psychological...Or maybe it's from carb-loading? Who knows.

    How about run a diet that's low-carb, but have carb-up days twice a week. Pick up a product like LG Sciences SLIN and you can be a little more liberal with your carb intake and not worry too much. Granted, you shouldn't be eating Oreo's, but you get my point.

  8. I have been doing the no carb deal and usually have a bit of carbs on the weekend. Today was great.......popcorn with hot sauce, 3 sushi rolls, hot and sour soup, and some wendys.

    Personally I feel it psychologically helps you from draining yourself out.

    yes ill get one of those products
    youre right about that.......yeah i follow a low carb diet because i do bad with high carbs diet its not for my body.....but i gonna try to make healthy refeeds at least once a week......but those days when you have those cheat meals are the moments that you dont care about nothing lol.....anyways this should be out of my system in 2 days i hope.....

  10. Cheat meals are a definite sanity saver. The only draw back to them is my stomach after words..especially when I'm low carb and I load with a bunch of bad carbs...lookout bathroom here I come.

  11. lol thats true poor stomach.

  12. I'm on a CKD and that's the only thing I dont like about my refeed day. I tend to get a distended abdomen for 1-3 days after a refeed.
