Use the guilt that you feel to prevent this from happening. Small binges are okay, but an entire roll of cookie dough is a bit extreme. I think I would throw up if I ate that much dough!
Just realize that all the obese people gave in and you are better than that.
Take your guilt/anger into the gym with you also.

officially an adult
forget about it and move on!!! In the long run you really didn't do too much damage, but you might have set yourself back a week or two.
When I have a sweet tooth I go for diet coke w/ splenda and it seems to work for me, try it!

I don't think you set yourself back two weeks, rykertest. I say that because I know you will try extra hard now. Just make sure you aren't cutting calories too fast. I had a problem with that before. If you cut too fast you will have more severe cravings.

Thanks....I love you guys. (not in a prison way of course)

Call it your cheat meal, appreciate it, think about how the excess calories will boost your metabolism back up and see it as a good thing.
Cravings are there because we deprive ourselves of something, you had the craving, you gave in, now its done.
I bet in two weeks you will have another craving, you are only human you know.
Don't sweat about it, we have all done it, it will not ruin you.
Just don't do it every day and you will be fine.

Yeah that's the way I see it; you just threw your body for a loop--consider it a preventative measure to keep your metabolism in check. Now you can resume eating clean and you'll probably notice even faster results.

I've noticed that in the last couple of months of cutting/dieting that when I gave into a craving it seemed to pick my weight loss back up following that meal. I just made sure to tighten up my diet and workout the next few days to make sure the excess was taken care of.
Consider it a treat and enjoy and move on. Gettin depressed after these types of things can lead to people saying screw it and they continue to eat the same afterwards because they feel as if the one meal killed all of the work.

Cheats have their place, as they def increase the metabolism. What I would do for a roll of cookie dough !!!
05-04-2006 03:04 PM
A whole roll?
Yeah - I'd puke after all that.

I AM NOT A FATTY!!! I am just big boned! :P
Hey bro, if I may ask what are your stats in your avatar pic?
05-04-2006 04:30 PM
Yerah I thought I would too and was halfway tempted to make myself but thats not a good road to go down. I have not felt that gross since that night in Tiajuana a few years back.

I bet if we all posted our craving downfall for this month, your cookie dough would not seem that bad.
Maybe we should start a "how I cheated today" thread, and I bet you would feel much better.
05-04-2006 09:11 PM
Yeah - philly cheese, pizza, and Oreo ice cream are my downfall.
Apart from apparently being arrogant...
05-04-2006 09:26 PM
OMG, you make me laugh. You ate a whole roll of cookie dough. Its like will ferrell in ELF reading off his agenda "First were going to go ice skating, eat a whole roll of toll house cookie dough as fast as we can..."
05-04-2006 09:36 PM
I'm watching another Ferrell movie now - Ron Burgundy.

Cheat?! Hah! It's been like two months!~

Oh, and for my big boned friend, I was in the low 280s for that pic, and I'm 6'1". I'm currently ~250 and a good deal leaner (though unfortunately I've lost some size in the upper body since that pic).

Works for me when I pour it into ice cube trays and freeze it. Then pop a few as your cravings dictate.

I actually put in a couple of days (2-3) every 2-3 weeks of eating more during a cut (not excessively however). After trial I found that works perfect for me. My muscles get fuller and my energy levels get back up w/o gaining fat and bloat. Otherwise I just hit a wall and cutting back more just seems to target my muscles more than the fat.
