Eat at regular intervals
Avoid stuffing yourself with all the junk in one sitting, evenly spread the treats over a few hours. Start with small portions keeping a good amount of time between meals. This way you’ll be able to enjoy the culinary pleasures without the problem of over eating and probably falling sick.
Don’t always eat out
Cheat days don’t need you to eat out all the time. Saturday binge with beer and fried food followed by a filling Sunday breakfast may seem super exciting but this will make you lose track of your food intake and send your body into a shock. So settle for an indulging session at home so you know when you need to stop.
Listen to your stomach
Even though you might want to eat to your heart’s content, don’t overdo it! Listen to your stomach and stop eating when you start feeling full, sick or nauseous. Use smaller cheese plates rather than large dinner ones. This will help keep the food intake in control and you can always grab a second serving!
Choose fresh over packaged food
Even on cheat days always choose freshly cooked meals over anything packed or boxed. Limit your consumption of processed food by choosing to eat something freshly prepared even if it includes breads, cheese or fried items.
Don’t starve during the week
Instead of binging all on one day, start by indulging in one small treat once in two days. This will not only help you satisfy your urges but it will also prevent a major rush of junk food on one day.
Lastly, don’t skip your exercises. Even if you have indulged a little with food you can always make up for it with a few more squats.
