How harmful is cheating on your diet? I've never known anyone who dieted who didn't eventually cheat. I try not to cheat, but sometimes a stray piece of cake calls me. When it does, I consider my options. If it has been at least three weeks since my last cheat, I eat the cake very slowly enjoying every last morsel. It works.Then I jump back on my diet. The next day, I find that there is no difference on the scale. cheating on my diet once in a while seems to be okay
If you want to be healthy, do not drink dark soft drinks, no matter what. They're loaded with caffeine, sugar and preservatives. That being said, I often beg my family to just let me have one taste. One taste is usually nasty if I have been off of cokes for a while. Then I tell myself only poison tastes so bad. If you absolutely can't stop yourself, then drink root beer or clear colored soft drinks. They are not as bad for you as the other drinks. Anyway, it is a cheat day, and there is so much I can eat that won't be quite so unhealthy.
If you are taking a cheat day or just wanting recipe for special occasions or for everyday family food, order my cookbook in the right had column of the book.
The problem with cheating is that I am not dieting to lose weight. I am doing this to be healthy and to have safe cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
Sometimes I need a cheat day, but not very often. On that day I usually eat my favorite foods that I am missing so much. That being said, I never cheat on breakfast. Every morning, no matter what, I have a smoothie or fruit or the Budwig protocol. If it is pancakes and bacon I am craving, I simply eat them for lunch or dinner.

When my husband was working in Africa, I was left with time on my hands. I had brought many of my favorite recipes from home and my children and friends supplied me with others. With a computer and time on my hands, I organized all of the recipes, and put them on the computer. When I finished I had over 200 pages and sad to say not too many pictures.
For Christmas that year each of my children received a copy of my cookbook. They were so happy to have the recipes they grew up with. This was before I changed my diet to lower my cholesterol and recapture health so not all of the recipes are healthful. It does have healthy foods like crunchy granola, salads and others.
When I want to cheat, I pull out my cookbook. It is quite ragged now, but still useable. I made the books before I knew what e-books were. Well, they didn't exist then. I recently revised my book so that I could just open my ipad or computer and not have to deal with ragged pages.
