    Favorite cheat meals and amount/wk

    I'm currently on a 2500 calorie diet while on a cycle. I'm in the process of figuring out exactly or around where I loose and gain weight while cycling and lifting etc. One day a week I CHEAT and indulge in something I'm craving lol. I wanna know what some of your favorite cheat meals are and how many times you cheat a week?
    Once a week I can't resist grabbing some peanut butter cups lol. Ill cheat once sometimes twice a week when I decide to drink as well.

    I stay away from the alcohol, and just eat everything in site. do a little more AM fasted cardio when my pants start getting too tight. Last time I set down and figured it up I was eating around 4500-5500 cals/day. This is not ideal for bodybuilding i'm sure, but it keeps me steadily growing. 1lb per week on blasts

    in other words,.. I cheat every day

    I cheat once every 6-8 weeks. Usally, Five Guys followed by Cold Stone.

    Are you trying to loose weight or short? The reason I ask is that's not much in regards to calorie count. I just want to make sure your not falling for the "500 calories over maintenance" bullshit. When I'm gaining (like now) I stay between 5-6K calories a day (clean calories) on workout days and 4500-5k on off days.

    I'm 6'2" 235 and 9%

    Alcohol shuts down the liver from processing protein and alcohol also contains ridiculous calories that the liver recognizes as sugar and in turn stores as fat, but since it's already a fat and not a sugar it affinity to "store" is increased.

    One great cheat is popcorn. I pop my own corn in SFO or SSO and enjoy with no salt or butter.

    This is the truth.

    I don't follow a real strict diet but for me a cheat is ice cream or a candy bar.

    I LOL'd for real when you said 2500 a day. Thats about enough for an anorexic teenage girl, not a full grown man on a cycle trying to make gains.

    Monday cheat
    Some kind of fatty meat like ribs or something

    Tuesday cheat
    A sleeve of rice cakes with butter spread on them

    Wednesday cheat
    Giant stack of pancakes for dinner

    Thursday cheat
    Gigantic roast beef sub from my favorite place and fried mac and cheese bites

    Friday cheat
    I make my own egg rolls at home with shrimp and a ton of veg. Not so much a cheat except I deep fry the shit out of them.

    Saturday cheat
    Orange Leaf frozen yogurt with my fiance and daughter (so long as my daughter eats her dinner). Usually get a mix of peanut butter and chocolate and then bury in crumbled PB cups and reese's pieces.

    Sunday cheat
    My fiance makes pizza Sunday nights. I'll bury one and a half of them.

    It's an improvement. Really though once I cut the sodium out of my diet, I stopped feeling like I'm having a heart attack around the clock.

    I still eat major excess cals, but I've cleaned it up significantly. And my cheats are based on my training schedule.

    You need tobe a bit more scientific about it...figure out your maintenance cals (see spongy or go online for the formulas) needed and adjust according to goals...
