So every once in a while something in a person’s life will come up and they will go off of their diet for a meal.
Whether it be an event, didn’t plan properly, or just something randomly came up.
From a calorie standpoint a unplanned cheat meal really isn’t going to make too much of a difference weight loss wise.
However from a psychological standpoint (and lets face it weight loss is mostly mental/psychological) it makes a world of difference.
Let me explain.
Say a person has been dieting perfect for a long time and then comes up with an unexpected cheat.
Something has then happened psychologically that makes it easier to cheat again.
For example a person has been dieting perfect for 3 months and is killing it.
Then they have an unexpected cheat.
Then maybe 2 weeks later they have another.
Then it’s every week.
Then it’s a couple of times in a week.
Then the diet is out the window.
When a person stops dieting they just don’t wake up one day and say f it I don’t want to diet anymore.
It usually is the exact scenario above.
So I know it is tough at times however things can snowball and get out of hand VERY FAST.
Recognize this and try to avoid at all costs!
