Everybody here has probably tried having a cheat day, a day where you're free to indulge (hopefully still in moderation). Of course there have been concerns about how healthy- and if cheat days are even healthy- they are. I don't agree with cheat days, I personally cannot handle doing them. But I reccomend that if you can handle having a cheat day, that you do it during the week!
Having a cheat day on the weekend is super hard because if you don't work on the weekend, you have more free time to go places. And you may find your healthy eating going down the drain all day. It is easier, I think, to have a controlled 'cheat day' somewhere in the middle of the week.
i've committed to changing my mentality. i believe it's the only way to successfully make a life change. i never "cheat" i may eat something unhealthy, but it's not cheating, because "cheating "connotes an improper action. no food is "bad", it's just a less healthy option. everything in moderation!
