Why You SHOULD Cheat On Your Diet

May 06, 2015 1 min read

We have all cheated - seduced by a decadent chocolate cake, a bag of chips, a greasy cheeseburger.  We have all felt regret, guilt and shame as we return to our diet regimen, knowing full well what we   have done. What if there was a way to feel good about being so bad? What if cheating was actually a healthy practice in maintaining your diet? Well good news for all you cheaters out there - research proves it is! According to a study conducted by Tel Aviv University, treating yourself to a little cheat early in the day can curb bigger, more dangerous food cravings later on. Try indulging with a sweet crepe or chocolate muffin in the A.M. to avoid a binge in the P.M. Including a cheat meal once or twice a week is a healthy way to keep your body from feeling deprived. Cheat meals should be spaced out a few days apart, and should still be in moderation. Cheat meals can satisfy your body and boost your metabolism as your system works harder to digest them, reveals a study published in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism. That little spike in your metabolism can contribute to an increase your libido, making you feel happy and satisfied. It has also been proven that diets that allow for flexibility ultimately last longer and are easier to stick to. So instead of restricting yourself of those cheese fries you can't shake from your mind, go on, be a little bit bad, cheat. It's worth it.
