Cheat Meals are our form of escape from the hard routines that we follow during workout and dieting. While they do give us a sense of happiness and comfort, there are certain ways in which you can improve the whole concept.
First of all, calling it ‘treat meals’ rather than ‘cheat meals’ will make a huge difference.
Earning it would be the second more important thing. Keep goals and treat yourself with the treat meal only after you have achieved the goal. This helps to get rid of the guilt traps.
Keeping the weighing machine away is another trick you can employ. Worrying too much about the weight can derail your efforts. Also, make sure that you don’t treat yourself without putting in the hard work.
