Put a pause on your counting calories and other diet fads because it's actually healthy to indulge in food once in a while—and it can even help you lose weight! Here is a list of reasons that explains why.
- Keeps your metabolism going.
When you have a meal plan, you tend to eat the same food over and over that your metabolism starts to recognize and tend to not work as hard in burning. Having a cheat day helps keep your metabolism strong and fired up! (via fitday.com)
- You won't feel like you're missing out.
Give in to your sweet tooth. You can't swear off sweets for the rest of your life.
- It motivates you to reach your fitness goals.
Since you had a big burger and cake yesterday, you have all the more reason to head over to the gym or go on a run today!
- You'll feel good.
You can do anything when you're always positive!
- It'll be easier to control your cravings.
Because you just had your favorite food the other day, it's totally okay to pass on this one.
