One cheat meal won’t make you fat, just like one clean meal won’t make you lean. You’ve got to practice self-discipline to have more “on” days than “off”. The key is to find your healthy moderation, enjoy your life and meet your goals. You CAN have both.

1. NO GUILT. Savor it. Enjoy it. if you allow yourself to feel guilty, you’re missing the point.

2. PLAN YOUR CHEAT MEAL. They should not be a spur of the moment decision.

3. DON’T FORGET EVERYTHING YOU KNOW ABOUT PORTION CONTROL. A cheap meal should not be a license to binge.

4. LIMIT YOUR CHEAT MEALS to two times a week.

5. MOVE ON. Don’t allow a cheap meal to be a trigger to more bed eating. Do it, love every second of it, and move on.
