The Dangers of Cheat Meals

Years ago I used to only allow myself 1 cheat meal a week

So I’d ‘be good’ all week

Then get to the weekend

And if I was really disciplined wait till Sunday

To have an all out binge

Try to consume as much sugar and calories in one sitting

We’re talking a full apple pie,

Followed by a tub of Ben & Jerry’s

Not to mention a packet of Haribo

But more often than not I couldn’t wait till Sunday

So I’d have it on Sat, or even Friday

With the promise of being good the other days

Yeah right,

There was more chance of me winning the Lotto than that happening

And I don’t even play the Lotto

Anyway all this did was make me feel like a failure

I couldn’t stick to one cheat meal

I’d have one on Friday and it’d turn into a weekend long binge

With the promise of being better next week

This was back when I thought clean eating was the best way to go

Zero processed food

No sugar

Until I realised a better way

Where I could have little treats all week long if I wanted

And still be in great shape

And still have loads of energy

And still feel really healthy

And this is exactly what I want to show you at my next seminar
