Cheat Night = a very bad idea. When you eat a lot of carbs, it takes two or three days to get back into ketosis. So if you cheat once a week, you only lose weight about three days a week. Thanks, I will stick with seven days of losing.

One time when doing this WOE after losing 60 pounds or so I did this kinda of plan. I did hard core no carb Sunday thru Thursday, Friday and Saturday I ate all the carby foods I could eat, back on plan Sunday morning with a hard workout. Did this for about 1.5 months and averaged a couple pounds a week lost during that time. HOWEVER, Friday and Saturday, turned to Friday Saturday and Sunday etc. till I was derailed completely. And having to go back through the sugar withdrawal each week sucked also.

I like the occasional cheat day that is not out of control but just enjoy a few treats for a day. But it is a slippery slope, I have had a cheat day turn into cheat months and putting back on all the weight I lost.

Once again a diet promising the world and delivering heart ache!!! Imagine that.
