After exercising for five days, every iota of our body craves for foods we wish to forget. They normally say that the sixth day on your fitness calendar is the day for cheat meal, which helps you recover from your fit-coma.
Don’t Overdo It
One piece of chocolate cake is fine. Don’t pair it with chocolate sauce and ice cream and load yourself up with calories.
Stick By The Rules
Yes, it is a fun day but we need to stick to the guidelines. Don’t just go all out and kill your week all efforts.
Burn It Out
We may sometimes over-indulge, be it a wedding or a Puja at home. But after you’re done binging, burn it out, without punishing yourself. Go for a stroll in the park or climb up the stairs 5-6 times right after the calorie-laden cheat meal.
Yes. It’s allowed. Melt some and pour on fruits like strawberries and bananas, and everything about this diet plan will seem godly.
Pasta and Pizza
If you are an Italian-food addict, whole wheat pastas and pizza bases are available. You can make them at home as well. Load these with veggies, chicken, fish or paneer and you’re good to go.
So what if you can’t have your favourite bag of potato chips. Get some of your favourite veggies or fruits and oven dry them. You can even make a yoghurt dip to go along with it.
Fried Brown Rice
For all you Chinese-lovers, you can totally hog on your favourite cuisine. All you need to do is replace white rice with brown and lessen the quantity of oil exactly by half. Add chicken/fish/paneer/soy chunks along with veggies and your cheat day meal is sorted.
Why leave out on that oozilicious burger. Get multigrain burger buns, add your favourite chicken or potato tikki, vegetables and cheese. If you wish to balance out this burger, keep the oil used for the potato or chicken tikki low (about half tablespoon) or remove the cheese.
Why leave out something you’ve grown up eating? Paratha is the perfect combination of fats, carbs and protein. Stuff it with your favourites like cheese, potatos, paneer or even chicken.
A south Indian delicacy, load this with enough veggies and have with sambhar. An uttapam is great for your cheat day breakfast.
Multigrain bread plus grated cheese and five colours of veggies (carrots,tomatoes,capsicum,onions,corns) is a cheat day delight!
So eat whatever you want to eat but burn it lately.
Thank You 😉
