Okay, so I am really not a fan of "cheat days". I think it gives someone an excuse to go way overboard with their bad choices while they are trying to make their lives more balanced. In making a life more balanced I like to think of it more as enjoying the foods you love.
I choose to eat what I want, when I want. Does this mean I go way over on bad choices every day? No. It just simply means that if I'm craving something sweet, I eat it. I pay attention to my portion size, document it, make sure I'm aware of the food I just ate and move on. I feel doing it this way helps lead to a well balanced life of things I enjoy and things that are healthier choices.
I truly believe that "cheat days" are not necessary if you give yourself permission to enjoy life.
