Find Out How To “Cheat” On Your Diet And Still Lose Weight…
Hello again! It’s Tara here.
I think we’re all familiar with today’s topic: cheating on your diet.
(And if you say you’ve NEVER cheated on your diet… you might be telling a white lie! 😉 )
If you’re like me, you start out your diet with the best of intentions. You’re going to eat healthy… avoid all of those unhealthy, fattening, and sugary foods… and you plan to reach your weight loss goal in almost no time flat!

And you might do really well in the beginning—eating just what you’re supposed to… staying active… and avoiding those foods that are “off limits.”
But then… sooner or later… you end up giving in to temptation when a nice treat comes along… like ice cream, or a cookie, or a handful of potato chips, or a candy bar (which is especially easy to justify when it’s the tiny “fun size”!).
And let’s be honest… cheating on your diet is very understandable sometimes.
After all, if you go out to lunch with your friends or coworkers… or you attend a family dinner… you don’t want to be “that person” who makes a big deal about only eating carrot sticks with a glass of water, right?
But once you do cheat on your diet… does that mean game over? No weight loss? Are those extra pounds going to stay on your waist and thighs forever?

Today’s question is:
“I want to lose weight. Is it okay to cheat on my diet?”
This is a complicated one… and people have different perspectives on it.

One thing that’s very important to keep in mind is that if you’re on a diet that is very restrictive… that doesn’t let you have the food you enjoy EVER as opposed to in moderation… then you’re not likely to stick with it. And you might become miserable staying on that diet.
What happens as a result is that when you go off the diet… when that period of time—maybe it’s 30 days or 60 or 90 days—what will happen is that you’re going to compensate and eat more and more of those foods.
As a consequence, statistically, people who are on these types of restrictive diets are more likely to gain the weight back.
So, instead of going on a restrictive diet… and then “slipping up” or “cheating” every once in a while…
You will likely have more success by committing to a diet that isn’t restrictive and isn’t a “crash” diet. Instead of focusing on cutting out unhealthy or fattening foods… focus on eating nutrient-dense foods that will fuel your body.

How A Deprivation Diet Can Be As Dangerous For You As Smoking…
One of the “hottest” diets around right now is the keto diet.
If you don’t know, “going keto” means cutting your carbs down to a really low number per day… in the hopes that your body will go into “ketosis”… and start burning its own body fat as fuel.
Now I have to admit… I’ve seen some people lose a lot of weight initially when “going keto”…
But those gains are often just temporary… and most people end up gaining all of the weight back pretty quickly.
On top of that… the first longer-term studies of folks on the keto diet are just starting to come back in now…
…and they’re not pretty.
For example… did you know that people on the keto diet are much more likely to have 3 health conditions that are normally linked to smoking?
Plus there are indications that keto can damage your kidneys over a long period of time…
And those are just the known problems with the keto diet.
So before you think about cutting your carb intake… you really should read this (which will show you how to lose weight safely and effectively, without deprivation as well):
