So Mr. Ruben, the author of the book "The Makers Diet" says that if you are to cheat on your diet, do it all in an hour.
So we did.
In 1 hour we (wife, 2 small children, mother & father in law) DEVOURED 5 baskets of chips with accompanying hot sauce, green sauce, and queso, 12 flour tortillas covered with honey and butter, and I had a large taco salad. Afterwards I had a big M&M blizzard with chocolate and caramel from the local DQ.
All within an hour....
I feel like I could literally pop. My stomach is extended multiple inches and stretched beyond belief. I took in more calories than I have in the past 2 days in one single hour. I've been 9 days organic and natural, just to stuff gullet with everything I'm not supposed to have.
And for what?
No satisfaction at all. I feel bloated and fat and sluggish. I'm very tired, but I'm pretty sure I will be pooping my brains out all night long.
Totally NOT worth it!
It makes me wonder if cheating is like this on all levels? I mean, surely Tiger Woods had to have felt some remorse. He had a good looking wife, then he went and banged a million trashy sluts. There had to have been some feeling if regret there. Right? Surely at least Arnold Schwartzeneger felt like crap after he realized what he had done. I mean, geez, he had sex with a troll... Really, I think he got her into show business and she was on that new movie "The Hobbit" as one of the trolls that were trying to eat the Dwarfs.
I will not be doing another cheat day. Not for a good while at least. I had gotten down to 194.7 this morning. ONE NINETY FOUR point SEVEN!!!!! That's major from the 203.3 I was just 9 days ago. With the way I'm feeling right now I'm sure that ill be over 203.3 tomorrow morning...
The moral of the story...?
Cheating = not worth it!
