Should You Eat Periodic “cheat” Meals?

200 Comments I get a lot of questions about cheat meals. Are they allowed on the Primal Blueprint? Is there a reason someone should actively seek to eat unhealthy food from time to time? The allure of the cheat meal is obvious: you get to eat stuff that’s otherwise off-limits and extremely delicious. You get to throw caution to the wind for a night. It’s like vacation and you’re a food tourist. But are there actual benefits? Today, we’ll take a look. As I see it, there are three arguments to be made for including periodic — that is, scheduled or preordained — cheat meals in your otherwise solid Primal eating plan. The Psychological Deload Some people can stick to their strict diets with metronomic regularity. They have no issues avoiding “those foods” and feel zero compulsion to cheat. That’s me, for the most part. I’ll pick at the odd crusty piece of bread with butter in a restaurant or birthday cake offered to me, but I’ll just as often decline to partake. But not everyone is like that. For some folks, hewing to the Primal eating plan takes willpower. It’s not so much that you’re constantly fighting off temptation. It’s that sometimes a burger sounds a Continue reading >>

    For those who are eating fruit, how has it affected you plan? Whenever I have any (berries or melon) it throws me out of ketosis. Has anyone else experienced this? Do you still lose, or does it cause a stall?

    Adding fruit into my meals in OWL had no negative impact. The main thing that helped me was I did move up the ladder slowly as Dr. A recommended to see how my body would react to the extra carbs and different foods. I can now have fresh strawberries with my breakfast, some melon with lunch and suffer no ill effects. Each person is different, so you will need to chart your own progress and see how slowly adding in 5 more carbs each week works for you. Good luck.

FREE 6 Week Challenge: https://gravitychallenges.com/home65d... Fat Loss Calculator: http://bit.ly/2O6rsdo The carb cycling diet is one of my favorite diets because it is one of the fastest way to burn fat while retaining as much muscle as possible. Most people don't know that carb cycling is actually a form of ketogenic dieting. The ketogenic diet is a diet that is lower in carbohydrates, which makes our body convert more dietary fat and body fat in to keytones in the liver. Which it then goes on to use for energy. Like I've said in many of my videos the human body prefers to use carbs as its primary source of energy. You're body won't produce too many keytones on a high carbohydrate diet, because your body won't need extra energy from fat due to the fact that its getting its energy from the more preferred carbohydrates. The only way for our body to use more fat for energy is by not having its preferred source there all the time. Eliminating carbs completely, however can have many drawbacks on our health and well being. Protein, carbs, and fats are all important and necessary for our body. So in comes the cyclical ketogenic diet aka carb cycling and also known originally as the a

Is A Ketogenic Diet Right For You?

Functional medicine M.D. Sara Gottfried contributes frequently to goop on the topic of weight-loss resistance. She’s spent the past two years rigorously studying the ketogenic diet—high-fat, low-carb, moderate-protein. Named for ketones, which Gottfried explains are “the energy source made by the body when there’s not enough carbohydrates to be burned for energy demand,” the goal of the diet is to get the body to burn fat instead of sugar. Gottfried recommends the keto diet (as it’s commonly called) to help with a range of brain and focus issues—she finds ketones to be “very efficient fuel for the brain”; she also says it works well for some patients (not all) who want to lose weight but Continue reading >>

    I am feeling rather upset and concerned right now at this time. I have been OP since i started this program this time around..Not a lick , taste or a bite and my numbers show the continuous losses from week to week..I have been so happy being in ketosis and not feeling hungry...
    HOWEVER... I was feeling seriously nauseated in the store today, felt like i was going to puke...so my hubby grabbed me a 1 litre gingerale and we booked it out of there pronto...I get to the car, unscrew the cap and suck it back like nobodys business...hoping that it would help..Well..good news is..it did help... BAD NEWS is... It wasnt diet ...
    I didnt even look at the label on the bottle till after i had drank some..Usually i pick up diet .... i never buy the sugar laden soft drinks..but my hunny must have picked it up in a rush, and didnt look..and of course me thinking that he has my best interest at heart..assumed it was diet....
    So now im seriously conerned i have knocked myself out of ketosis...
    The carb content per 8oz were 25 grams of carbs... 16 grams of sugar...
    I measured the rest of the gingerale out when i got home to see how much i had drank..and it looks like maybe 1/2 a cup was gone..My question is...if thats half a cup...then thats about 13 total carbs for that 1/2 cup....

    I'm way too new to be an expert, but I've done LOTS of reading on the forums since starting. I have seen more than one person post that their coach allowed for a "cheat" day (which I can only assume means they would be eating a lot more carbs than usual) followed by 2 days on VERY strict phase 1 protocol with NO restricted packets/bars. Not something to make a habit of, but it might be worth doing for the next 2 days and talk to your coach. You might stall just a little but you shouldn't lose too much ground.

As I said before, that means that your cells essentially are running on ketones for fuel, as opposed to running on glucose, which is what the vast, vast, vast majority of Americans are running on, and therefore there’s all this disease here.
