Well well well…… I am not sure what it means if you started reading this after the above title hahah or did you know it was about a cheat meal? Yes of course you did. Well lets get to it!!
So if youre like me youre not one of those robot like people who don’t crave anything and who love eating rice cakes and tuna 6 times a day (we all know that 1 really ripped guy big shout out to Alberto Vera in my case !!! )
We need some shall I say dirty food once a while for example yesterday I ate a mc donalds and it was nt just a happy meal . I calculated via myfitnesspal (a caloria counting app) I hit around 1700 calories .
Macronutrients of the McDs
Protien – 64g
Carbohydratos – 189g
Fat – 81g
Is that bad?
Well as of jan 1st like a lot of people I am meant to be in a fatloss phase so my current plan equates to 2400 calories . So after eating the mcDonalds I only had 700 calories left and I was way off on my quantity of protien. So the rest of the day I had a 60g protien shake and 2 protien yoghurts with a piece of fruit .
This made my daily macros
Protien – 127g
Carbohydratos – 222g
Fat – 84g
Total cals -2200
Put the calculator away! ……I will spell it out for you I ate what some people would say is a cheat meal and on this day iam in even more of a deficit (deficit= calorie deficit which will dictate your fatloss) than I would of been If I was in my structured meal plan. Wooohooo cheated and got away with it!!
Word of warning this is a tool to use once in a while eating processed foods is not healthy but once in a while wont kill you and wont stop you losing fat aslong as you calculte it ! so go out out enjoy yourself be sociable and when you do eat off plan just make sure you keep protien high in the other meals and get back on the plan the next day.
