i've also read here that some people have cheat weekends instead of just one day? Which would you say is better? (:
I think IP calls them fun days.
"Cheat" indicates you are doing something wrong. But it is part of the plan!
Most of our successful maintainers eased into those days or meals, treading lightly. Don't forget to plan a P1 day immediately following to balance insulin. There is a maintainers thread where your question may be better seen/answered.
