Cheat Meals- Can I Eat ‘Normal Foods’ Like Carbs And Fat And Still Lose Weight?

I decided I was going to make a mess of myself last easter and eat a load of easter eggs (I mean a load) Easter Sunday and openly told everyone about it. .

They all thought id lost it!

Ya’d swear i’d never cheated before in my life!

I told them sure just last a couple days ago I had a LARGE popcorn and 300g MAN bag of maltesers in the cinema. It was the beginning of my two week experiment to see how much bodyfat i can lose. Everyone said to me ‘isn’t that stupid? putting on weight so you can lose it?’ I answered with a simple ‘NO, it will make me LOSE fat in the long run’. You see people have losing weight all backwards, they think you have to deprive yourself of the foods you like and it is ESSENTIAL you are miserable throughout the entire fat-loss process.

None of them would believe me. . Im not blowing my own trumpet but I maintain a fairly low bodyfat % all year round (<6%) . .why would they! Little do they know when I am out for a meal I will make correct food choices 90-95% of the time but there are times when I ‘strategically cheat’. . Just because people see me eating healthy most of the time doesnt mean I live on lettuce and brocolli all the time. . I just happen to like chocolate and popcorn so thats how i deal with my cravings AND repair my metabolism!

YES repair my metabolism! It’s funny because most people think cheating is merely a psychological thing. Something used really infrequently to squash cravings and keep you on track with your ‘diet’ . . thats true to an extent but the main reason i cheat is to ‘fix’ my metabolism. .

I compete in both Tae-Kwon-Do and Boxing and I need to keep my bodyweight around 73kg (I compete at 71kg) this is fairly tough considering I lift heavy 3-4 times per week. Calorie restiction is sometimes a must for me. . same as anybody on a diet. Difference is it’s easy for me! I plan my cheat meals, and eat healthy nutritious foods the rest of the time. . I enjoy my large popcorn and maltesers and dont feel a bit of guilt because by timing my cheating strategically it actually HELPS me lose weight! Optimising my fat burning hormones and accelerating fat loss. You have to be careful though there is is a process involved and way too much involved to fit in this post (or 20 for that matter).

My clients think I am crazy TELLING them to eat their favourite cheat foods at certain times! Thing is they are all losing bodyfat using the >>>Bodyfat Blitz Programme<<< and >>>CHEAT YOUR WAY THIN<<< nutritional practices and its only been a week!

To read more on the subject you have gotta check out Joel Marion’s Cheat Your Way Thin Videos –> HERE. I have been an advocate of cheat meals and preached their benefits for years and Joel beat me to the punch and wrote an entire book about it! He also has a number of fre.e videos on the site that further explain the processes mentioned above.
