This morning, just before I went in the shower, I was looking at the scale by the sink in the bathroom. I noticed that I was losing about 1/2 pound of my overall weight. That was an over 2 pound loss. I was over my daily calorie goal. I decided to go for it. I had breakfast at my favorite breakfast place. I ate a big breakfast, drank a lot of coffee and lots of water, and then walked down to my favorite spot in the park.
Now that’s a cheat day. I was actually in the gym, playing basketball, and eating a healthy breakfast. That might not sound like a big deal, but the fact is that most of us have cheat days. So if you do your best to maintain a healthy lifestyle these days, you can still get a huge weight loss.
I’m not sure if most people realize what a cheat day is, but it’s pretty common for someone to go to the gym and lose a few pounds, or put on a pair of skates and hit the ice. There’s something about getting fit that makes you feel awesome. And as for the ice, the whole point is to get rid of the calories.
So how are you supposed to get rid of the calories you eat when you have cheat days? Well, if you’re a fitness junkie who’s always on the go, you’ll want to get your blood pumping with a good sweat, and this is where the cheat day calories come in. After a workout, your body will start to burn off stored fat and create energy, but until you actually eat the calories, they’re just going to stay on your system and get stored.
In most fitness programs, this is all you’ll ever do. But just because youre an out-of-shape nerd doesn’t mean you should cut out all calories, right? When you eat a lot of “cheat days,” youve got to make sure youre burning the foods youre eating to get the energy they contain. So instead of using a calorie calculator to determine your calorie count, you can just count the calories youre eating to see how many you have left to go.
This is a simple idea that many fitness programs don’t offer. You can do this by just eating too many cheat days and having your body go crazy. But that’s just a general rule. To really know if youre cutting calories, try going with a cheat day that you can control.
The idea behind this tip is that cheat days are usually longer (10 to 30 days) and the food you eat has a chance to get stored for later rather than now. A cheat day is the ideal time to eat and if you just eat as you normally would, your calories will not go up because youve already burned them. This tip is especially good for anyone who is in the weight room. We’ve all been there.
So if you skip breakfast, you want to make sure you are eating all your calories, right? Thats true. But some people are more prone to eating too many calories than others. Some dieters just eat more than usual, and this is a good time to cut out all those extra calories.
The trick is to just eat your normal amount of calories and add the extra calorie you want to eat and your body will do it for you. If you are not eating enough, not all your calories are being used up. If you are eating too much, your heart rate will go up, your brain will ache, and your metabolism will slow down.
