Missed a meal yesterday; Cheat meal hurts my cutting progress.

Yesterday I was out with Lisa and didn’t make it back home in time for lunch. I didn’t want to eat out, so I wound up eating my mid-day meal late. Then I missed my afternoon meal because I just wasn’t hungry. It’s not that big of a deal, and I only mention it so I don’t get a dozen emails asking me why I only ate 1,500 calories yesterday. 😉

For the first time in about a month I didn’t lose any weight this week. This is also the first week in like a month that I ate a cheat meal. Coincidence? Maybe, but I seriously doubt it. I know that a lot of people feel a cheat meal won’t hurt their progress, and for many that’s definitely true. However, after over 2 years of carefully scrutinizing my diet and how my body responds to food, I think I know myself pretty well. There is little doubt in my mind that FOR ME cheat meals have a negative effect on my cutting progress. When I’m maintaining I have no problem with cheat meals, but when I’m cutting they just kill my progress.

Time for cardio – have a great day!
