Can You “Cheat” On Your Diet Without Ruining It?

Cheat days” has been part of the diet vernacular for years, but is it really “cheating” on your diet? Not if you go the “planned indulgences” route, says dieticians. Learn what some experts recently told CNN to inspire your Phentermine 37.5 mg regimen.

Changing Cheat To Treat

"I don't like to use the word 'cheat meal' because I think it connotes that there are good and bad foods," says Martha McKittrick, a registered dietitian and health and wellness coach. "You think if you are 'cheating,' you are eating a bad food, and it sets up a mind game."

Try changing the wording from “cheat” to “treat.” Words such as treat and splurge provide positive connotations.

"Cheat meals are an indication of not being happy with your diet," added Mascha Davis, a registered dietitian in private practice and national media spokeswoman for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

Something To Look Forward To

Planning your treat days, such as enjoying some pizza on a Friday or getting a scoop of ice cream after dinner on Sunday, gives you something fun to look forward to. It’s especially helpful if you’ve been eating well and cleanly all week because it breaks up your diet. This avoids the monotony that makes plenty of people give up their diets too soon.

"People who treat themselves are giving themselves permission to eat something they enjoy. ... It's not 'off' the plan or 'bad,' " McKittrick says.

Treats Every Day?

Davis suggests providing yourself with portioned treats every day such as an oatmeal cookie or some air-popped popcorn.

"If you love what you eat, you will be able to keep the weight off long-term, and you don't need to cheat!" she notes.
