Well one thing I have learned is have a cheat day. I make my cheat day any day of the week , I only have 1 thing , like something that I really think it was forbidden .

If it works for you then great. I don't do it every week (and some weeks I have more than one). IMO a controlled "cheat" every now and again is better than an uncontrolled binge later.

42" jeans(25/01/2013) 40"(28/02/2013) 38"(20/03/2013) 36"(25/05/2013)
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.

i generally eat a little something 'bad' everyday , scoop or 2 of ice cream
i eat some organic dark chocolate everyday as well but all within my caloric limit

now and then generally once a week i go off the reservation and eat loads of good and 'bad' stuff going over my calorie allowance by up to 1500 cals. I treat it as a re-feed/leptin reset and it doesn't seem to affect me negatively and gives my metabolism a kick start.

I follow the 5:2 way of eating (2 fast days, 5 normal eating days). On regular days I eat what I want. Overall, I do eat a lot of veggies/lean meats, fresh whole foods but I also do eat some junk those days. Once in a while I have a day where I just eat anything and everything.

I cheat on the weekends but I will be changing that soon because every Monday I am up 1-2 pounds from Friday's weigh-in. On Wednesday, I am where I was on Friday and by Friday, things start looking up (or down in this case) and I am usually down another 1-2 pounds. If I have only 1 cheat day, I may not have to get back on the up-down roller coaster.

We will see how it goes. I lack discipline on the weekends. Way too much temptation Wink.

I stick with a cheat "meal" twice a week rather than a whole day. When I do that I binge. I usually have one on the weekend and another on a week day but it usually doesn't put me over my RDI (or not by much) that way.

I stop counting and worrying about two nights every 3 - 4 weeks. That way I can have people over, do burgers, chips, a few beers, dessert. I weigh more the next day, but it's typically just food weight and drops back down to where I was within a few days.
