hey it’s Thomas de Lauer with befit and today I want to talk about the most wonderful fun part of dieting and that’s cheat meals because we have to face it we are not machines and we’re not going to stick to a boring bland diet all the time we do have to spice it up with some cheat meals now and then and there’s not just a physiological benefit to having a cheat meal it’s going to help you burn more fat but there’s also a huge emotional benefit sometimes just giving yourself that little emotional gratification that you can have a cheat meal now and then is exactly what gets you through a long bout of dieting so within this video I want to give you four rules that you can stick to when you’re having your cheat meals that’s four parameters that you can work within so your cheat meals are the most effective but also so that you don’t go backwards in the process and you utilize a cheat meal for what they’re meant to be which is something that will catapult you into more and more fat loss so number four is making sure that you have some protein with your cheat meal more often than not people have a cheat meal and they just dive right into the carbohydrates and they forget protein altogether and even if proteins not your thing I encourage you to have some and I’ll explain why if you have some protein with your carbohydrate rich cheat meal it allows the carbohydrates to shuttle that protein into storage that you can actually increase your metabolism and build a little bit more lean muscle out of the process so since most of the cheat meals are focused around carbs you get to capitalize on that increase in insulin production you also get to capitalize on the glucose uptake within the muscle what that means in simple human terms is that the carbohydrates are going to allow the protein to be utilized properly they’re going to help you build a little bit more lean muscle and we all know that a little more lean muscle tissue leads to a lot faster of a metabolism the other thing that protein is going to do is it’s going to help keep you satiated it does tend to fill you up and it does tend to make it so that you’re less apt to eat more of the carbohydrates on your cheat meal so there’s a two-fold benefit to adding protein to your Gmail so rule number three that I want you to follow when you’re having a cheat meal is to have a glass of LEM water about 15 minutes prior to your cheat meal and to sit down when you eat now I know it’s kind of a two-part tip but they go hand-in-hand I want you to drink the lemon water because it’s going to help you digest some food that you’re probably not used to you’re right now it’s also going to help curb the appetite because that lemon water is going to help stimulate a few of the gastric juices so that when you do eat it breaks it down and you assimilate it better and sitting down is going to simply allow you to eat a little bit slower a lot of us have a tendency when we have a cheat meal sort of just raid the fridge or raid the pantry which can lead to all kinds of impulse eating which really wasn’t fitting into the parameters of your Chi meal to begin with so drink a little bit of lemon water sit down and relax and enjoy your cheat meal and that leads right into rule number two which is eat slowly so after you’ve had glass of lemon water and after you sat down at the table you want to eat slowly and I encourage you to focus on really chewing your food 7 to 10 times before you swallow there’s a reason for that you have studies have shown that when you chew your food a little bit longer it allows the release of leptin which is a satiation hormone as well as other satiation hormones to tell your body that you’re no longer hungry this means that you won’t over indulge in your cheat meal there’s a lot of times a cheat meal is perfect just because it gives you just a taste of what you need to get back on track and back on the rails the next day you don’t have to go absolutely crazy and go to town and eating slowly also gives you an excuse to enjoy your food savor every little bite of that cheat meal because it’s not coming for another week or two and now we jump into the number-one rule when you have a cheat meal and this is very important when you have a cheat meal make sure that you orient it around your workout and try to make it your post-workout meal if at all possible and the reason is simple when you’re done working out your insulin sensitivity is high and your body is much more apt to absorb the nutrients that you eat it’s going to withdraw some of the positive nutrients out of that possibly not so healthy cheat meal and at least give you a little bit more of a benefit that might even allow you to burn some fat in the process but the trick is when you do your workout it has to be a resistance training workout and possibly some cardio that’s at least 70% of your maximum heart rate the reason that you do that is you want your body to utilize carbohydrates when you’re working out you see if you just do traditional cardio your body isn’t really running on carbohydrates but if you do some resistance training or maybe a little bit higher intensity cardio that means that your body has been utilizing carbohydrates for that workout which means when you’re done with your workout you can get away with a little bit more in the way of a cheat meal but the other reason and this is the most important reason why you want to workout before you have your cheat meal is to not stir up old habits so many of us got in the habit of eating cheat meals or eating junk foods and then sitting around and doing nothing honestly that was how I ended up at 280 pounds I would eat the food like I was working out but then never work out so the goal here is to start a new pattern and to convince yourself and train yourself that if you’re going to have that cheat meal you’re going to work for it or vice-versa you go to the gym you work hard you train hard because you know that afterwards you’re getting a cheat meal and you want to earn that cheat meal and when we’re setting up a reward system like this it is critical so there you have it you’ve got four easy rules to follow when you have your cheat meals so you’ve dived right into this diet and now you know exactly what you can do to make sure that you don’t go outside those parameters of the diet we have to remember so much of this is a mental game and if you’re not giving yourself those micro awards with cheat meals it can be very very difficult to stick to a diet but you do have to remember you have to put some policy in place so that you don’t go overboard so thanks for watching I’ll see you in the next video here on be fit

I DO NOT ENDORSE THE SUPPLEMENTS ON THE VIDEO, THIS IS NOT A PAID ENDORSEMENT OR A PRODUCT PITCH. THE SUPPLEMENTS IN THIS VIDEO WERE FOR BRANDING FOR THE CHANNEL IN WHICH THE VIDEO WAS CREATED.

BONUS VIDEO- Oldie But Goodie! Here are some Cheat Meal Tips! This was originally built for another channel, but now I’m sharing it with you!

As always, I have plenty of other topics on my site, but this is a bit more information for you!

I have done a similar video, but this video contains a couple more exclusive tips that weren’t on my other cheat meal video :)

There are 4 Rules For Cheat Meals in This Video:

The Fourth Rule:

Since most of the cheat meals is focused around carbs you get to capitalize on that increase in insulin production. You also get to capitalize on the glucose uptake within the muscle. What that means in simple human terms is that the carbohydrates are going to allow the protein to be utilized properly. They’re going to help you build a little bit more lean muscle and we all know that a little more lean muscle tissue leads to a lot faster of a metabolism. The other thing that protein is going to do is it’s going to help keep you satiated. It does tend to fill you up and it does tend to make it so that you’re less apt to eat more of the carbohydrates on your cheat meal. There’s a two-fold benefit to adding protein to your cheat meal.

The Third Rule I want you to follow when you’re having a cheat meal is to have a glass of lemon water about 15 minutes prior to your cheat meal and to sit down when you eat. I know it’s kind of a two part tip, but they go hand in hand-in-hand. I want you to drink the lemon water because it’s going to help you digest some food that you’re probably not used to right now. It’s also going to help curb the appetite because that lemon water is going to help stimulate a few gastric juices so that when you do eat it breaks it down and you assimilate it better. Sitting down is going to simply allow you to eat a little bit slower. A lot of us have a tendency when we have a cheat meal to sort of just raid the fridge or raid the pantry which can lead to all kinds of impulse eating which really wasn’t fitting into the parameters of your cheat meal to begin with. Drink a little bit of lemon water, sit down, and relax and enjoy your cheat meal.

That leads right into rule number two which is eat slowly.

Thee number one rule when you have a cheat meal and this is very important. When you have a cheat meal make sure that you orient it around your workout and try to make it your post workout meal if at all possible. The reason is simple. When you’re done working out, your insulin sensitivity is high and your body is much more apt to absorb the nutrients that you eat. It’s going to withdraw some of the positive nutrients out of that, possibly not-so-healthy cheat meal, and at least give you a little bit more of a benefit that might even allow you to burn some fat in the process. The trick is, when you do your workout, it has to be a resistance training workout and possibly some cardio that’s at least 70% of your maximum heart rate. The reason that you do that is you want you body to utilize carbohydrates when you’re working out.

You see, if you just do traditional cardio, your body isn’t really running on carbohydrates, but if you do some resistance training, or maybe a little bit higher intensity cardio, that means that your body has been utilizing carbohydrates for that workout. Which means when you’re done with your workout you can get away with a little bit more in the way of a cheat meal. The other reason, and this is the most important reason why you want to workout before you have your cheat meal, is to not stir up old habits. So many of us got in the habit of eating cheat meals or eating junk foods and then sitting around and doing nothing. Honestly, that was how I ended up at 280lbs. I would eat the food like I was working out, but then never workout. The goal here is to start a new pattern and to convince yourself, and train yourself, that if you’re going to have that cheat meal you’re going to work for it or vice-versa.
