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

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.

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.

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

I eat fast food more than I really care to think about, but tend to avoid mcdonalds, taco bell and burger king at least. When travelling, its sometimes tough
10-28-2010, 12:09 PM
