So today was cheat day..
Timothy Ferris (Author of the 4 hour Body) suggests that you have a cheat day once a week. By dramatically spiking your caloric intake you increase fat-loss by ensuring that your metabolic rate doesn’t downshift from extended caloric restriction.
Yep I know it sounds crazy but you are encouraged to ever indulge to a point of almost being sick. On this one day each week you can have anything from doughnuts to McDonald’s or everything in between.
So here it goes this is what I had:
2 Over easy Eggs
3 thin slices of Canadian Bacon
1/2 an Avocado
2 slices Marble Rye Toast (with lots of PB and Raspberry jam of course)
1 Small Hamburger with ketchup and curry mayo
1 cup of Yam fries with ranch dip
5 Total various Chinese dumplings
1 cup Chinese Calamari with spicy garlic and chilis
1 small plate of Soy Sauce Chow Mein
2 small Strawberry Mochi Ice Cream balls from TJ
Not so bad compared to some of the cheat days Tim writes about in the book. There was one I can recall he had eaten 2 whole pizzas in a matter of hours along with beer bear claws and twix bars!
Anyways long story short I was excited about today but after over indulging I must say I feel tired, sluggish and a bit sad.. Even though I know it is part of the diet I felt like I was doing something wrong and I am excited to be back on track for Monday.
Bed now, work tomorrow, blog soon xo
