Don’t Make This Mistake: Cheat-Day Meal Size

April 16, 2013 | By | Reply More

We received an e-mail that asked if eating three large meals on cheat, or Victory, day was okay.

Most everyone seems to be looking at that one “free” eating day as the time they can go hog wild. (We’ve used it to oink out ourselves.)

But that’s not what your Victory Day is for. It’s for metabolic momentum and to boost your fat-burning hormone LEPTIN…

A good rule to follow: Even on cheat day you should limit meal size. Why?

Because an overfeed at even one sitting can flip on the fat-storage switch. So don’t gorge.

For example, eating a few slices of pizza is acceptable; however, eating most of a large pizza pie as you growl and snarl at others who are reaching for a slice is not.

Same with desserts. Yes, you can indulge, but don’t eat an entire half-gallon of ice cream at one sitting. You could UNDO your entire week of good eating.

You do NOT want to feel like you’re going to burst after any of your free-day meals. If you do, fat storage is inevitable.

So the bottom line is, yes, you do want to bump up your carb/calorie intake, even with some simple-carb desserts if you like…

Just make sure you do it methodically throughout the day to minimize fat storage. Satisfy those cravings, but don’t gorge (if you do, giving in to tempting food may not be for you–more on that in a future blog).

Remember, you”re trying to keep your metabolism revved and leptin levels stable, not stuff yourself till you’re temporarily disabled.

Train smart, be well, live long.
