I follow a low-carb diet w/ a moderate deficit and a cheat day on saturdays. I found my recent results to be stagnating and my weight hasn't gone down. From this weekly cheat meal I feel as if I'm negating all my hard work from earlier in the week, but I have read that those meals help with things like leptin and other hormones. This isn't my first time in a cutting phase as I have previously shedded 10% bf.
Before, however, I only had one cheat meal per 12 days as opposed to a "cheat day" in the week. Should I just return to the latter program and include only 1 cheat meal per 12 days, or continue for another 2 weeks w/ 1 cheat day per week and see what happens? (I am now starting my third week into my recent cut phase with this new approach)
Training wise: I kick my ass in the gym everytime I go.
