Cheat days come a dime a dozen during a proper diet. Regardless of the circumstance, weather it’s a family vacation, a holiday, a birthday, hanging with friends or just your weekly “cheat day”.
What if there was a way to strategically cheat on your diet with all your favorite foods but still allow your body to accelerate your fat loss. What if the plan consists of a 3-day eating program that allows you to burn-away maximum flab and calories in minimum time? How is this possible? By controlling that horrible fat-storing hormone called insulin.
Here’s How It Works:
Day 1: This day should be dedicated to consuming nothing but healthy liquids filled with protein.
Feeding your body only shakes helps you naturally shrink your stomach. Drinking shakes should be a natural thought process and the way you “staple your stomach”.
Day 2: This day should be committed to protein and vegetables.
5 small meals are acceptable but should consist of nothing but protein sources i.e. fish, chicken, turkey, lean beef (broiled, baked, or grilled), low-fat cottage cheese and eggs, and vegetables like lettuce, cauliflower, peas, green beans, broccoli, asparagus, squash, zucchini, okra, green/red/yellow peppers, carrots, spinach, kale, celery, etc. (No corn, it’s way to heavy!)
Try cooking your vegetables in healthy fats such as organic butter or coconut oil. A salad is also a great alternative for those who like their vegetables raw.
Day 3: This is your Splurge Day.
Imagine two days of eating minimal calories. On the third day, eating 5 mini-meals is still a given. These meals also consist of the lean meat and vegetables mentioned above. But instead, each meal consists of about ½ of a cup of “high-energy” carbs to three mini-meals in the form of “slow-absorbing” versions that aren’t as likely to get converted to body-fat once eaten. Examples include: black/pinto/kidney/lima beans, sprouted grain pasta or bread, red potatoes, sweet potatoes, barley, quinoa, and wild rice. An alternative option would be fruits or heavier carbs”. Then for ONE MEAL on this day and ONE MEAL only, you can have a SPLURGE meal and eat whatever you want. The one exception is, don’t allow yourself to get overly full.
Remember, you are now on a smaller mini-meal diet. Also, try not to make your splurge meal the last meal of the day. You don’t want to go to bed on a full stomach. Remember what I told you about those horrible fat storing places?
After this 3-day cycle, simply repeat the cycle until you’ve lost the extra “baggage” and your diets back on track.
