Lessons learned (to date) -- and that I need to remember -- while on the Cheat System Diet:
-- If I'm going to eat a Cheat, eat the real thing -- no substitutes. I won't be satisfied with substitutes.
-- Load up on eats BEFORE going to events where there will be (seemingly!) unlimited Cheats, e.g., Mexican restaurants' 'bottomless' tortilla chips bowls!
-- The Energy Soup is where it's at! Delicious, nutritious, extremely filling, and excellent for losing weight.
Planned Cheats: 6.5
Have been less focused since the 21-Day Challenge ended -- no bueno! Need to get my head back in the game.
To ensure I minimize my Cheats, I will start planning my day's meals and snacks instead of winging it.
