So I know the general belief is that while dieting, 1 cheat meal a week (or even 1 cheat DAY per week) is acceptable. My question is, how far is too far? When you are having your cheat meal, do you simply just add a few carbs here and there.. have something friend, maybe a bit of cake..
OR.. do you go ballistic and shove your face with all kinds of foods you crave until you feel as though if you eat another bite you're gonna explode? Common sense says it's not good to do the latter, but do some of you do this anyway and still see decent results while cutting?
I ask because typically my cheat meals is just having slightly larger portions at restaurants but still eating clean overall. But yesterday I went to the cheesecake factory and went nuts. I know just 1 crazy ass meal won't destroy my progress but I wonder if people do this on a weekly basis and still make fat loss progress?
