a cheat "meal" is beneficial to your overall weight loss goals, being that your body gets used to the healthy foods it is breaking down the longer you eat it, therefore it finds more efficient ways to break those foods down and save more energy in the process, thus burning less calories. Now when you throw in a cheat meal that is high in fat, sugar, empty carbs, greasy as fuck, it completely throws off your bodies "saving energy" process of breaking down foods because your cheat meal isn't routine, so it has to kick itself back into overdrive to break down the cheat meal, hence you have just reset your metabolism back to efficient energy burning methods.0

They're good in moderation.
A cheat meal is better. A cheat day can go overboard lol
On Halloween I had a cheat day. I went way too far overboard. Two doughnuts, 4 cookies, hot chocolate, poptarts... it was a bad time.
But oddly I woke up 3 lbs lighter the next day?
I've since returned to my normal weight though so that was a fluke haha
They're good - your body needs sweets every once in a while, but you have to keep control of yourself... unlike me.0
