Cheating and Staying on Track

When it comes to fitness and tracking your progress in weight loss and dieting, you should pay closer attention to your diet than you pay to your workout routines. It may sound somehow but you need to always remember that real Abs are made in the kitchen! If you fail at your diet, your sweat at the gym may just go to waste.

I know cheat meals sound like they are supposed to be illegal when you are on a diet, but if you know how to use them, they are not only acceptable, they are recommended! A cheat meal is a meal that is high in calories and contains carbohydrates, proteins and fat in high quantities and it is used to serve as a buffer when you are dieting.

Here is how cheat meals help you stay on your fitness track:

  1. It helps you to curb cravings: Going on a rigorous diet is never an easy task, even if you have been going at it for years. Cheat meals twice every week will go a long way to stabilize appetite and make it easier to adhere to diet.
  2. It helps the body to adapt: When you are on a diet, the body is in some form of panic as it tries to protect the immunity and the freshness of the body, cheat meals make it easier for the body to get it done and to make a smooth transition in diet and still maintain your good health.
  3. It serves as reward system: One of the best ways to use cheat meals is to use it as a reward for being able to stick to your diet and your workout routine. One of the best ways to stay on track is to be able to look forward to something exciting after every few days.
  4. Cheat meals are simply fun! Even from the name, you get the feeling that you are cheating the system and you are still getting very good benefits from it.
  5. You get to keep the hunger hormones under check every few days: Dieting affect hormonal action and the most influential of these are Leptin and Ghrelin which are responsible for control of hunger and regulation of appetite. A rich supply of heavy calories once in a while helps to balance them.

Remember, the most vital thing is to lose weight, stay fit and improve health.

A particularly frustrating part of struggle is the ability that it has to stop us dead in our tracks IF we allow it. The potential embarrassment of failure freezes us. The possibility for rejection discourages us. The idea of disappointment makes us check out of the game.

Our world today is a convection of deception, constantly the bullshit is on the rise, and the truth, subsurface and disregarded. We must hold true and steady the course through the lies and contradictions. We have to hold the line between our own lives, and the world that tries to breach in.

Gratitude is something we could all benefit from. Gratitude means thankfulness, counting your blessings, noticing simple pleasures, and acknowledging everything that you receive. It means learning to live your life as if everything were a miracle, and being aware on a continuous basis of how much you’ve been given. Gratitude shifts your focus from what your life lacks to the abundance that is already present.
