After the big bet how long should I PIG OUT?

Well, I have 11 days left on a 3 month bet and I am kicking a*#...

I've lost 30 pounds so far...but I am wondering if I should take a week off or a day or what after it is all over

- I want to reward myself for this nightmare I am putting myself through, and I already have my post bet plan to be healthy again...but I don't know whether to eat my favorite "bad foods" (e.g. double whopper w/ cheese + fries) for a day or a week what?

How long should my big rewarding break be ? ?

I say pig out for a day, you probably won't be able to stomach more than that after being so good. But try to find a way to reward yourself that doesn't involve food too. Maybe something you've wanted to buy.

well you are probably going to have some serious digestion issues if you have been healthy for a few months -

I would go for 1 day indulge in breakfast - then eat a healthy lunch and dinner.
The next day indulge in lunch, but have a healthy bfast and dinner
and then the third day treat yourself to dinner, bfast and lunch healthy.

This way you are still keeping yourself somewhat on track, you get to enjoy your reward for 3 days, and you arent going to shock your system as much.

OP--can I ask what you've been doing to lose so much weight in a short period of time? I am starting to feel hopeless! I work out three to four times a week and watch my calories and the scale still isn't moving! I've been doing this for months!

Great idea 4:54! That way you can stay on track and indulge at the same time.
I know that the longer I stray from my healthy eating the harder it is to reign myself back in. If I ate "bad foods" for a week it would take me another week after that to get back into the habit of healthy eating.

30 lbs in 3 months, and planning the mother of all binges weeks in advance as a "reward". Have you learned NOTHING??
