    favorite cheats


    The thread about cheat meals got me thinking about cheat meals. And since many of us are cutting... What are your guys favs.?
    Mine are:
    1. McDonalds
    2. Fried shrimp Poeboy, with spice fries and a Purple Haze beer
    3. Palisades pizza
    4. Taco flavored doritos (since you can't find them east of Chi-town, I have to go with the newer twistos taco flavor)
    5. Coke. "Stuff of the Gods"

    McDonalds..lol. I used to like it before I seriously got into lifting and getting into shape. Now I dont even want to go near that place. For me its pizza hands down. Once I start I cant stop until i eat the whole damn thing. A pizza buffet is suicide for my cut diet.

    I like to go to the Chinese buffet. Or if I go to a good restaurant, I like Peeking Duck!. Not sure if I spelled it correctly. But I love peeking duck!. I also haven't made pizza in a while but I make my own. Everything fresh from scratch nothing pre-made. Its pretty good. I use my own pizza stone and it came with its own peel. I guess going to school for culinary arts did help in some ways. I hardly ever make detail receipes anymore though, because it would be a pain in the ass to figure out all the calories and macronutriets for each recipe. Nowadays I usually make everything plain, plain meat, plain everything. Also when spring comes around I know the best places to get the best tasting lobstah rolls!. Man they are good, not too much mayo though, that just ruins it.

    subway, or a huge plate of pasta w/about marinara topped w/chicken breasts or lean ground beef. I know it's boring but i love it.

    Pizza is also a good one, but i feel like a blimp for 5 hours after i eat it.

    Mmmmm PIZZA!!!! It's got to be Pizzeria pizza and not Pizza Hut or dominos or papa johns kinda pizza. Pizzeria pizza is my weakness along with Chocolate chip cookies but my strength in being able to not tempt myself with them is getting pretty good. But reading and posting this has just stirred up a craving. THANKS A LOT!!!

    New York Pizza is the best. I live in Maine though, so its not like they deliver. If I went to new york though, I would definitely get some pizza. Pizza in this state sucks ass, thats why I started making my own. No dominos, pizza hut crap for me. Its just crap!. You can't go wrong in the spring though here if you know where to get a good lobstah roll!. I'm not from here but thats how most of the idiots up here talk. They can't pronounce there R's, just like people from boston, and they are in love with boston and the boston red sox. I'm an oddball up here though but thats ok.

    Pizza, Fried Chicken (Bojangles) or McDonalds.

    No matter which, if you stay on your diet and only partake once in a while,

    IT TASTES LIKE GOD MADE IT!

    For me that's like once every six months. Hey! I'm an old fart. I have to diet extra strict.

    dude, it was like pure heaven. I fear, however, they'll be coming to an end in the next week or two. At least, to that extent lol.

    But I savour it like a kid ina candy shop. I don't feel sick at all. Monday's are a little rough as I am still in my carb induced coma state

    What kind of scotch? I like Johnny Walker Blue. Smooth as silk. Expensive as hell though, going rate is about $200 a bottle.

    The last time I drank (and I mean the last time), I drank Johnny Walker Gold. I have never been so hammered in my life. I threw up several times and I was hungover the entire next day. Bad, bad,...bad memories.

    I'm getting some Ta Ching Chicken and fried dumplings today!. Anybody see Sly Stallone on Jay leno last week I think it was. He says he always includes a cheat day, and he goes nuts!, He said chocolate cup cakes, cookies, everything you name it!. You have to have a cheat day anyway to increase leptin levels...Especially while dieting.

    Hells yeah. Damn good music 'round these parts.

    Tex-mex is a big bold no-no on the CKD, and I'm more or less insane about clean carb-ups, so this is gonna have to wait until I'm back to maintainence...

    Today its girl scout cookies...I almost have a cheat meal everyday....been putting a scoop of ice cream in my eggwhites before bed.After doing this for quite a while, and not eating so clean I gained more weight, and am close to the leanest I have ever been....go figure.
    I remeber an article in the 90's about Shawn Ray...he basically lived on hamburger helper..

    My Favorite cheat would have to be either a nice 16oz Ribeye with garlic mashed potatoes or a 'Texas Size' Chicken Fried Steak with cream gravy and mashed potatoes. I could eat those every day, I just wish I didn't have a Saltgrass Steakhouse so close to where I work (within walking distance) because it's waaaaay too tempting.

    Couple that with all of the Mexican restaurants down here, it's no surprise that I'm 250 pounds.

    Cheesecake, and any tipe of frozen yogurt, italiƫn icecream etc.

    I can eat lots of fat and stay lean, it's carbs that get me. So if I want pizza, then I eat pizza, but I only eat the toppings and leave the base.
    This way it's not a cheat meal and I can eat it any time!! I only do it about once a month though.

    I once had BBQ nachos at a Memphis Redbirds (Cards' AAA team) from Corky's. I liked it alot, but didn't like the cheez whiz **** they used.

    So, I bought a few lbs, transported it home in a coolier. I make my nachos w/ Doritos gold tortilla chips (sometimes a spicy tortilla chip), probably a half lb of the bbq, extra Corky's BBQ sauce, 1 or 2 sliced jalepeno's, and then I shred a few oz. of gouda cheese. I abosutely love gouda. Those nachos are the ****, but I've been staying away from 'em for a while. Gotta order some more BBQ from Corky's. (I used to be able to get it from the local grocery store where I used to live.)

    Damn.. chocolate covered almonds are the ****.

    macaroni and fu*kin' cheese

    Homemade oatmeal chocolate chip cookies without raisens...
    Braums brownie fudge sundae's (hell.. anything Braums)
    Those chocolate covered mini donuts that come prepackaged
    Chocolate Chip Muffins
    Chinese food is awesome.
    Mexican food is a close second
    Indian food is tied with Mexican food
    American food is 3rd (pizza, hamburgers, chicken tenders/nuggets, steaks)
    Italian food is 4th < damn I love beef lasagnia.

    ..its almost enough to just screw going for the physique and just indulge.





    Are two cheat meals a week really that bad?
