When someone decides to be on a weight loss plan, we understand how hard it is to control food cravings every now and then. When the solution to any of the problem in the universe is food, ultimately you need some solid motivation to not have a 'cheat day'.
Just to inform all our readers what a 'cheat day' actually stands for, it is a day to celebrate food without worrying a bit about those extra calories and fat in your meal otherwise.
But we are about to make a different point of view here; instead of going hard on yourself, replace the word 'cheat' with 'treat' with any guilt.
We know the fact that food is one of the greatest pleasures for every one of us. But still, the idea of incorporating treat meals may vary from person to person. So here are some considerations for including treat meals into your eating plan!
Weekly treat is a good idea
Starting a diet plan by incorporating a daily or weekly treat meal can make sense to some. But others might hold off until an initial goal is reached.
Go by the taste
It is important to choose food one really enjoys. It can be a cheeseburger on a small whole-wheat bun or a fruit or a piece of candy. Whatever suits you!
Finally, lose the guilt
Feeling guilty about the indulging not only denies the pleasure, but it can also lead to emotionally driven eating which will result in weight gain and set you up for a poor relationship with food.
So whether you call them treats, splurges or something else, most agree that there are positive aspects of including them in the diet.
