That depends on what you mean by cheating.
Eating leftovers isn't cheating. The key to healthy living is moderation! Are you tracking your food on he weekends? The problem is, if you eat too much on the weekend, you can undo the calorie deficit you created during the week.
You don't have to eschew good, homecooked meals on the weekend; the trick is you have to manage your portions properly and count the calories you do eat. I don't follow the SP meal plan, but I do track, weigh and measure everything I eat.
Don't consider the SP meal plan to be a restriction on what you can eat; it's just a helpful guide to finding balanced, healthy meals. If you want a banana, eat a banana! Just remember to appropriately track it in your nutrition tracker.
