6 Ways To Prevent Diet Cheating From Blowing You Up Like A Balloon

By Katherine Crawford

Nothing is perfect, including your ability to follow a strict diet. In fact, even the most successful dieters cheat with a high frequency.

The critical element here is making sure that your deviations don’t derail your progress.

So here are 6 ways to prevent diet cheating from blowing you up like a balloon:

1. Pair the junk food with vegetables: Vegetables will mechanically slow down the digestion of the junk food you are about to eat. This in turn will minimize the effect on your blood sugar. And recall that high blood sugar is a recipe for fast fat storage.

2. Drink lots of water before you binge: This is a great way to make yourself feel full with a liquid that has no calories. You will also get the added benefit of smoother digestion since your digestive tract uses water to move food along its way.

3. Try to position the cheating after your workouts: Right after an intense workout your body is able to absorb an above normal amount of calories with minimal fat storage. Thus, it makes sense to position your cheating right after your workouts.

4. Use sugar substitutes: If you have an insatiable sweet tooth use sugar substitutes to keep it in check. The good thing about sugar substitutes is that they taste just like sugar, but don’t have the calories. Just make sure you don’t overdo it here since we still don’t know if they are safe in large amounts.

5. Don’t have a cheat day: The idea that cheating for an entire day is beneficial for fat loss is a wives tale. There is no physical benefit to this practice. The only benefit here is psychological relief. For best results, however, restrict cheating to one meal.

6. Go all out if you are at your limit: If you’ve been dieting really hard and feel like you are about to throw in the towel, then please go all out with your cheating. You see, one meal of massive proportions won’t cause much harm, but it will relieve that built up psychological pressure.

You can cheat on your diet and still get excellent results. The key here is to cheat in a way that doesn’t have a major impact on your progress!
