Dieting can be tough, sticking to a strict diet that involves planning and portioning out every meal can become monotonous and tiresome. For these reasons, may dieticians, athletes-even professional bodybuilders and models cheat from time to time. If you don’t treat yourself to a nice juicy burger or a big bowl of ice cream from time to time, you are more likely to slip up when it comes to your diet. Enjoying a nice fulfilling meal that has the fats and salts we crave from time to time isn’t a bad thing at all. A cheat meal once in awhile can actually give you additional calories and protein you can use to progress further when it comes to your fitness goals. Cheat meals can help you put on some extra bulk especially during those long winter months. Conversely you have to keep in mind this is a once in awhile thing, you don’t want to overeat for an extended period of time. This is why it is best to just go all out when it comes to your cheat meal, get it all out of your system at once, in one meal. You don’t want to be spreading your cheat “meal” out adding calories here and there, that is where you will get in trouble and potentially go off the rails.
