Does The Cheat Day And/or Cheat Meal Work For Weight Loss?

“I can resist anything except temptation.” For most of us, that quote feels most applicable when we’re in the middle of changing our eating habits — also known as going on a healthy eating diet. Let’s face it: cutting out foods like refined sugar, carbs and anything #coveredwithcheese from our diet can be a challenge, particularly when you’ve first started a new eating plan or when you seem to have plateaued in weight loss efforts. It’s one of the reasons that cheat days have become so popular. What Is a Cheat Day? A cheat day is a sneaky day that, while it may seem like any other, gives you license to eat whatever you want, without counting calories or sticking to your diet.

    So, my entire family is dieting right now. I'm the only one doing keto. Every Saturday we all get together to have dinner (I'm talking aunts, unces, cousins, the whole nine yards). My family jokingly calls that day "Fatterday" because they allow themselves to cheat on their diets for that day.
    I'd like to cheat on fatterday as well, but I by no means want to take the whole day off. I'm thinking maybe just a small item I could normally not have. Like a side of potato chips (certainly nothing like an order of pasta). How bad would this be for my keto?
    Do any of you do something like fatterday? Does it help with cravings through out the week? How has it effected your weight loss?
    Thanks :)

    You've only been on keto for 12 days, it's really a bit early to think about having a weekly cheat day. You won't be fully adapted for at least a few weeks, and going in and out of ketosis wouldn't help with that.
    After that, that's up to personal opinion.
