Title: Cheat Day?
Post by: JAM on February 13, 2012, 08:29:36 AM
How many of you have a cheat day?  And do you go crazy over on calories with candy, pizza, and total junk?  Or do you only go over by a small calculated amount with healthy food?

So do you go over your normal amount of calories then?  If so by how much roughly?  Or do you just eat about the same calories only with carbs and other foods?  Was curious, I haven't had a cheat day in a long time and this weekend sushi called.   8)

sushi is decent tho and rich on protein/carbs,,sodium and rice is extra bit due to soy sauce,,,i never count cals ,,eyeball my meal portions exact some days and a lil loose others depending on training days/off days..

Oh yea sushi wasn't bad, but then we ate desert.  LOL  ;D  A huge old cream puff ruins any decent nutrition.  ha ha ha.    8) 

Thanks for the input.  I try to weigh or calculate what I eat 95% of the time (except a cheat day) because my eyeball is always waaayyy off.  "Yeah that looks like 4 oz", then I put it on the scale and it is like 12.   :o

LOL both are my friend because in the mirror I think "god your a beautiful hunk of flesh"  ha ha ha ha  :P  But the scale don't lie.   8)  Actually I tried eating over for a few days a week to see what would happen.  Went up a couple pounds and body fat % went up a few tenths too sooo basically I gain lard easy.   ;D

well then add 3rd option take cell pic transfer for yourself in computer and look it over to see where its all going....i found that very appealing and addicting lol,,esp when i threaded it here ...i was suprised and quite happy with where all this training/eating/dieting obsession really went.remember once u compete that's the benchmark of condition how the hell are u going to live up to it 365 for yrs and yrs u can't unless ecto all the way and even then a true 'ecto'wants to gain in the worse way,,,would trade cuts for size,,,balance we've discussed it jam on pm's u know what to do,,,,i am happy with 8 to 10 pct bf i could do it with little effort just daily intake stays same bump cal's if needed or during heavy training cycle.

For me, its like this....

Mon, Tues, Wed, Thur = 1900cals

Thurs night cheat meal = (approx) 1200cals

Fri, sat = 1900 cals

Sun = 8000 cals....

I write down everything....I like to see if I can beat my last cheat day....and see how long it takes me to look good.  I am back lean by usually Tuesday afternoon.

my cheat day is epic, it's all out all day. Pizza, ice cream, hamburgers, cup cakes, candies, chocolate bars, coke, all that shit, no limits all day. I wait 10 days before my first cheat. I do it on sunday so my monday, tuesday workouts are always great when dieting. By friday it may be a bit harder but it's my easiest day in the gym (shoulder and tri's with light bi's.)

Aftermath....not really.  I take my Metamucil at night....nice easy shit in the morning.

This week I managed to eat a 13oz jar of nutella in 1:40......and later downed 2 McDoubles in 1:16......

Trying my hand at competitive eating.

EPIC.....

I just wanted to see how much I put down.  I know I did nearly 10K this past sunday.  I think that was far too much.  Just didnt feel right at the end of the day.  I think about 8K is good enough.


Title: Re: Cheat Day?
Post by: JAM on May 09, 2012, 09:30:45 AM
LOL 10k made you feel sick?  Like those eating competition people who puke.  ha ha ha ha   ;D   For me a cheat is like maybe one big meal or something that puts me up a little higher than normal.  8-10k is wow  :o
