Its also a good way to shake up your body. You may put a bit on but it will soon drop off and usually then some

Letting go occasionally lets me keep control the rest of the time.

Have a lovely cheat day!

Down from 60" waist jeans since June 21st 2012.

Still keeping to my 26" jeans, but they are too tight for comfort. too many tasty things in the US, and over Xmas.

Onwards and Downwards! Smile

personally I prefer to keep track also on days in which I allow myself to go over my calorie budget, it is a habit that keeps me on track and let me know how much I need to recover later

Hmmmm - The great binge. I have them as well. Although mentally satisfying I do not like seeing the scale go up and having to work my butt off to get back to where it was before the binge. Seems to go like this - Binge one night = gain 3 / 4 lbs = takes a week to get it off. Makes no sense to me. Anyway I do it I think mostly to keep my sanity and because my body is craving stuff I have long deprived myself of. Enjoy - Just get back on track the next day.

I find that a binge day 4000+ cals doesn't really have any affect on my weight as long as I keep up my training.

Over Xmas despite eating loads more than usual over a couple of weeks I kept up my training and probably only gained a pound or 2 which went when I went back to my normal diet in about a week, so no biggie

I had pizza yesterday and I can almost feel the glycogen filling up those deflated fat cells. Even though I stayed close to my deficit intake, I know the scale will see all that water and glycogen.

Glad I don't weigh everyday.

4,000+ calories for your binge day is still alot...I may eat a pizza slice or two or add more pasta on my cheat meal..never a day and I still keep track.

Maybe 4000 seems high but on a training day I often burn 3000 calories so over the week it doesn't impact, esp if I'm under or maintaining the rest of the time.

When I want to cheat. Boy do I cheat

Barbecue ribs, fries, Hagen das ice cream and popcorn and bottle of fruit cider...my death row final meal right thereSmile

I thought the whole idea of a cheat day is to eat all you possibly can, not have to count, and not plan on burning exactly what you ate. I think that if you eat one day 4000+ calories, your body doesn't really absorb it all. There is a limit of how much of it stays, so the whole idea that once you eat over that amount, there is no point in stopping - might as well go all out and kill those cravings for the future.
