Weight Loss, Fitness & Health Weight Loss, Fitness & Health

Someone was telling me about...**edit**

Posted by   + Show Post

a faturday..every saturday she doenst count cals...or workout. she eats watever junk food she wouldnt allow herself any other day. Does anyone else do this? If so how much does it really affect your weightloss. I LOVE the idea. Especially since on Sundays we all eat lunch at my moms ((its usually fried chicken, mashed potatoes, mac-n-cheese, & rolls)) But im spekical cause i dont wanna lose any progress. Tell me how yall feel about the idea

 

EDIT**ok i didnt mean make myself sick from junk but i meant eat a fatty meal and maybe some ice cream that night. Healthy breaksfast & dinner. I just dont want to have to turn down my moms food. And trust me its gonna be deep fried in grease and slather in butter. But thank you for your opinons. I just didnt want ppl to be confused by wat i meant. I would not plan on eating TOO much.. just stuff i normally wouldnt allow.

In response to your edit...

Eating bad foods in MODERATION is key.  So if you are going to eat your mom's food, that is fine.  But just know that it is deep friend and slathered in butter.  So, eat less than you would normally eat.  Let's say she makes fried chicken.  Eat just one piece instead of 3-4.  (Not saying you normally eat 3-4, I am just giving an example.)  If she made sweet potatoes loaded in sugar and butter, then have some... but maybe stick to just 1/3 of a cup instead of piling on a whole heap onto your plate. 

You can eat unhealthy foods in a somewhat healthy manner by at least being conscious about your portions.  That way your "cheat" meal might be 1000 calories instead of 2500 calories.

I give myself treats in moderation throughout the week when I feel like I need it.  I'd rather spread it out and keep portions small to keep my belly from being sick and also so I'm not holding out to binge on one day, LOL (because personally, I would).  

But some ladies here do cheat days and find that when they eat healthy and proper portions all week, it's difficult to "cheat" because they get full so easily.  But for me I just couldn't do it.

Thank you all i apperiate your opinions alot. I think that i will feel better now about my diet. Its only been 3 days. And this is my 1st weight loss journey. So i still feel conflicted about alot of different aspects of it. Once again THANKS! :)

I will sometimes allow myself a sugary treat but not every week. I try to not consume too many processed sugars, however I LOVE ICE CREAM so occassionally I will have a blizzard from Dairy queen. Sadly it is most generally unstatisfying and then I'll go another month without having one.

I have found that whenever I cheat it always shows on the scale. I cheat once a month. I have a monthly poker game that I attend and I drink beer and eat 2 slices of pizza. I can't have a weekly cheat meal because I wouldn't lose any weight if I did

It sets me back for that week, but for the month as a whole, it works out ok. It's just that I can only do it once a month and not once a week.
