    I include all my favourite foods in my diet. I don't have cheat days because they just make you want these foods even more. In my book pizza isn't a treat it's just something I have when I feel like it.

    I agree with RedHeadGuy about pizza, but I'll also admit that there are things I don't let myself have on a regular basis because they've got, well, big footprints. My three:

    1. Dimsum
    2. Fried chicken
    3. Grilled skirt steak

    Cheat days are a personal preference. I do prefer them once in a while, and really savor what I eat. I just like food.

    In no particular order:

    Indian food (peas and cheese, yum!)

    Brownie sundae

    Frosty float from Wendy's

    Well, Pizza & beer, of course.

    Recently, I was having dinner with some "big" friends who are perpetually starting diet programs. We were discussing a product called "cheater's relief" that mainly contains chitin. It's supposed to adsorb fats so they pass on through without getting getting digested. It's marketed as something to use on cheat days.

    My friends instantly saw the implications and ordered up the huge "surf & turf" platter! (You just have to eat the WHOLE shrimp...)

    I have a sweet tooth, so my cheats are dessert items, which are only available in town because I won't keep them around the house. At home I indulge my culinary passions with meals like what I'm eating right now:

    basil_lemon_turkey-breast.jpg

    Sauteed turkey breast in lemon-basil-olive oil, drizzled with a little mirin that I used to deglaze the pan.

    I have a sweet tooth so my favourite three foods are:bananas;ice cream;chocolate(in any form!)I don`t have "cheat" days because I find the more I deny myself,the more I want the damn food!I spread the above thinly through my diet,except the fruit,which I eat daily!

    It's funny. My body is so used to not overeating anymore, a cheat meal makes me feel sick to my stomach.

    2. Sushi buffets all you can eat!
    3. Pizza, possibly with cheese in the crust!

    Every week it's something different. Yesterday it was shitloads of shrimp and lobster and butter at Red Lobster.

    I used to cheat every week when I started keto, but I've stopped as of right now as they were more often than not binges instead of cheats. Some examples include:

    16 pancakes at IHOP
    12 Chocolate Donuts + Oreos + Cheesecake
    20 cookies of various flavors

    BUt those were the most extreme, usually I just ordered a large pizza, the works, from papa johns with some grilled chicken and extra peppers thrown on it. Once a week. That kept me pretty stable for a while.

    It's a miracle I got anywhere eating some of the stuff I did on Saturdays.

    Great thread. There are so many things to cheat with! For me its


    1. Chicken pesto linguini - the big bowl, please

    2. Triple Play Burger at the local pub. It's a 1/2 locally ground beef, guiness cheese sauce, prime rib cuts and thick cut smoked bacon.. icon_surprised.gif

    3. McDonalds Fries... there I said it.
