if there were other people who are following that same plan if they have done that? I guess, I would like to talk to someone else and find out if they followed his suggestion and if/how it worked for them. It might also give you some pointers on just how much of a "cheat" meal you are talking.
Let's say, that you decide to order pizza mid-week and then go to a buffet on the weekend, which I used to do on my old food plan. It was "great" for maintaining the weight I was but it did not move the needle on the scales downward. Looking back on that, I also think it was giving me the mental "excuse" to want to cheat "just a little" other days as well. What's a little nibble, what's a little piece, you know what I mean?
Is there something inherently difficult with the food plan that you are following? Have you ever thought that you might need to change the plan you are on? I did after I researched other plans. I needed more structure and less carbs. Now, I am losing again. I am not tempted to "cheat" and when I want something sweet, I have something sugar-free. Have you tried a protein snack when you feel the urge to splurge? That is at the core of the South Beach Plan and it definitely curbs those cravings.
I never thought I would say this but I am finding that the more strict of a food plan that I follow the better I follow it.
I am a little skeptical and I think that myth of jogging your body to lose is just that--- a myth. I just wish people would get it that there is only one way to lose weight---eat less than you did before, which for most of us was a lot! And then become active. This is not a gimmick. It is chemistry and science.
Good luck and let us know how it turns out for you.
