#1 STOP Eating The WRONG Cheat Foods
One of the biggest mistakes people make is eating the wrong cheat foods.
Simply put, when you eat the right cheat foods, you’ll speed up your metabolism, increase your insulin sensitivity, and reset all the fat burning hormones that keep you burning fat – and you’ll do it without getting fatter.
But when you eat the wrong foods you can completely DESTROY all the positive benefits of strategic cheating.
For example, deep fried foods might taste delicious, but they are completely void of any nutritional value and therefore provide ZERO benefits when cheating. Try to avoid them.
Also make sure to avoid a lot of alcohol and high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) when cheating. This can block leptin sensitivity. In case you didn’t know, leptin is your body’s #1 fat burning hormone and your first priority should be optimizing leptin when you’re cheating.
People who eat deep fried foods, loads of junk foods loaded with HFCS (High Fructose Corn Syrup), trans fats or binge drink on cheat days end up storing EVERY single calorie as fat on their bellies.
Make sure you stick with home cooked cheat meals and high carb, high sugar cheat foods that are not deep fried or full of HFCS. If you want to indulge in your favorite cocktails, wine and beer – go for it! But it’s critical to do it later in the day after you cheat or all your previous week’s weight loss efforts will be nothing but a WASTE of your time.
