    how big of a problem is this


    Ive been on a eight week cut and its been going great. However, today i had a really bad anxiety/panic attack and i broke my diet really bad. I ate everything from honey buns to pizza lol. Is this a major problem or is it just a little hiccup that can be over looked?

    just consider it a cheat day, and get back to being strict tomorrow.

    if you've been cutting pretty hardcore, then a cheat day will actually be more of a benefit.
    You're refilling your glycogen stores, 'resetting' the metabolism, as well as giving your mind a break....don't stress about it
    Eat whatever you want and get back on it tomorrow

    LOL, you just did what I do EVERY day

    No, what you did today is not going to affect your progress, and if you've been ridiculous with your calories or carbohydrates, then it might actually HELP your results.

    You also don't need to train extra hard or be extra strict with your diet to "make up" for this - just continue as you were.

    Not really, just make sure you don't have any more incidents other than planned cheats.

    No. You're being strict and this is the third day since your last higher calories/carbohydrates. You've reached the 8-weeks mark of your cut - from now on, you should start seeing almost daily visible results, even with the cheating. And because you HAVE been so strict, I actually recommend scheduling in 1-2 meals a week where you allow yourself not to be strict.

    yep. A single day of even busting totally loose and eating down an extra 3000 calories at a single meal won't have that much impact, but going too low calorically to try and make up for it generally will cause more issues than it will help. Just don't let it happen often, and you'll be fine. Even in contest dieting, its really the last 8 weeks or even less that count.

    Just doing the math, say you were 3500 calories over on the meal (and if you don't think that is possible, i'll share some of my cheat meals with you). Even divided out for the week, thats just a 500 calorie a day difference. If you are already at 500-750 below maintenance. the worst that will happen is this will be a light week as far as loss goes. But plummeting calories to under 1000, or doing 3 hours of cardio to try and make up for it will cause issues.

    Yes. As I said in post #4, "You also don't need to train extra hard or be extra strict with your diet to "make up" for this - just continue as you were."

    oh for a few examples, 2 1/3 pound burger patties with bacon and cheese, plus fries, a shake and then a stop for large peanut butter cup ice cream at coldstone. Another good one is pizza, i've manage to put down 2 whole pies in a cheat meal, that was an entertaining evening, I had people staring at me eventually at Cicis. I hate their pizza in general, but the kids like it. That cheat meal was probably close to 5000 cals, it was 22 slices of pizza, then 5 slices of their dessert pizza, and a couple other things off their dessert bar. i've done a whole roasted chicken along with cheesy mashed potatoes and a few beers. A full sized calzone, weighed close to 3lbs, around 18 inches across that the restaurant says normally feeds 2-3 people. At chilis, ordering their cheese fries and eating half myself, plus their blue cheese burger, fries and then random assorted desserts, plus some beer. My neighbors run a chinese buffet, so sometimes I go there, and i'm good for at least 3 full plates, plus a 4th plate full of just dessert items, and some ice cream. Can't think of any others offhand that have been really in that over 3000 calorie range recently. One that was close was buffalo barley soup, wild boar sausage, venison kabobs, a roasted quail, a wild rice blend, some corn, and a sort of funnel cake like pastry for dessert, plsu a couple beers. A couple beers is a pretty common theme in my cheat meals But the main theme is I eat whatever the heck I feel like, and eat till I don't feel like eating anymore.

    For reference sake, although the following morning I woke up a good 3 or 4 pounds heavier on each of these, by the next day I was below where I was before the meals.

    Wow thats a ton of food. Yesterday for example this is what i ate

    half of an apple pie id say six inches in diameter
    5 tbsp pb
    6 mini Crunch bars
    3 slices of pizza
    2 burritos and a quesadilla from Taco Bell
    2 rather large bowls of cream of wheat with butter and suger
    a protein bar
    and more but i cant remember the rest. However on a interesting note something i ate made me really sick last night and at around 12 oclock i puked two or three times lol. So does what i ate not matter anymore because i barfed it up? Fyi i didnt eat until i threw up i think something i ate at Taco Bell was like spoiled or something . Man i hate fast food
