im lucky in regards to junk food.. my metabolism is high anyway im a ectomorph and im on high test... I eat good every day I eat purely eggs chicken breast or beef veg and potatoes shakes and cottage cheese, I don't make it fancy I stick to what works. but il have a day usually on my rest day not all the time but always at a weekend were I will wake up eat a mcdponalds breakfast and it just gets worse from there muffins chocolate bars everything! I can get away with it now but no way when I go for my cut in 2014.... but yeah its a blessing and a curse because I can keep the fat off even with days like that but struggle more then say a endo to put weight on!
I agree with the above! cheat meal for sure, cheat day is a little extreme Personally I like to plan out the meal exactly, or I end up stretching it out to an entire day. love the homer donut action lmfao
I do a few cheat meals a week. I might get a big breakfast at dinner and go out to dinner on same day. Usually never more than 2 cheat meals in one day though. I have a very fast metabolism and my job many times will require me to work a 12 hour shift and walk, climb, etc for many of those hours. So I can get away with an extra cheat meal or 2 a week than the average guy.
iv cut all junk out my diet and im having 1 or 2 cheat meals at the very most a week. feeling good right now im around 13%bf now on test e only and im picking up my deca and eq tomoro im eating only
fish ( different types)
thats literlly it i keep forgeting to get vegatables but i eat that every day iv been eating this way for last 2 years but sinse breaking up with my ex ive become more dedicated to diet and its made huge difference iv just recently cut out junk to lean down a little before my cycle... il be cutting on tren and winny and or maybe masterone so i can still eat some cheat meals when i start the deca and eq
i do crave junk tho and now im watchin man vs food and its not helping lol
I would say 1-2 "cheat meals" in the off season and 1-2 high carb meals for contest prep a week. The problem with cheat days is (especially during contest prep) is if you truly binge on pizza, high fat burgers, fries, ice cream, and just murder out everhthing in site...you can easily end up costing yourself a week in time. I've in no way been a saint during my contest prep, BUT I have done my best on if I'm going to cheat to keep it low fat high carb. Mainly because being depleted I believe my body will utilize the nutrients for replenishment and not store as much in fat. Again I've not been a saint but I also haven't killed out pizza and mcdonalds and shit like that in an all out binge.

Cheat meal for my .02 . I always feel horrible at the end of a full cheat day on a psychological level, even if it doesn't mean much in the grand scheme of a great diet. For me personally just one single splurge is enough to satisfy a craving.
You could always just string together a little extra cardio.
For me if I'm trying to put on mass I would have a couple of cheat meals throughout the week ideally on Leg day or Back day, sometimes it ends up being a full blown cheat day though!
Or if I'm cutting I'm a lot stricter and would have 1 high carb day a week with low fats.
