Q: First I want to thank you for creating your X-treme Lean e-book. What a bargain for so much great information! I’m already starting to see lines in my abs after applying many of your suggestions for only a few weeks. One question: You call for at least one so-called cheat day a week. Do I have to eat junk food on those days?
A: Despite the term ” cheat day “, no, you don’t have to eat junk food. In fact, for those who have trouble controlling the amount of junk they eat once they get a taste, it’s best to steer clear. Those addictive-personality types will binge and undo a lot of the fat-loss progress they may have already achieved.
Then there are those whose systems don’t cope well with junk food. If even a small amount of junk makes you feel blah and sluggish, don’t eat it. Sure, the feeling may be only psychological, but the mind can do strange things and cause you to sabotage progress.
Okay, back to cheat day: It’s all about increasing your carbs and calories for that one day to keep your metabolism from slowing down. You can up your carbs with fruit, pasta, and/or a recovery-drink shake. Many of those powders have 60 grams of carbs and 40 grams of protein per serving. If your carbs are down to 150 grams a day, cheat day should push you over 200 grams—up to 250.
We’re glad you’re seeing fast results so far. And that’s exactly why we wrote X-treme Lean—so you’ll be proud to show your physique at the pool, lake, or beach.
Till next time, train hard—and smart—for BIG results.
