I’m a big fan of Tim Ferriss and The 4-Hour Workweek. He recently wrote a new book The 4-Hour Body.
Per his guideline, we’re allowed one “cheat” day where we can eat anything we want.
I recommend Saturdays as your “Dieters Gone Wild” day. I am allowed to eat whatever I want on Saturdays, and I go out of my way to eat ice cream, Snickers, Take 5, and all of my other vices in excess. I make myself a little sick and don’t want to look at any of it for the rest of the week. Paradoxically, dramatically spiking caloric intake in this way once per week increases fat loss by ensuring that your metabolic rate (thyroid function, etc.) doesn’t downregulate from extended caloric restriction. That’s right: eating pure crap can help you lose fat. Welcome to Utopia. -Ferriss
Therefore, now allowed to eat bread or any other white carbs, I opted for just that. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like King’s Hawaiian Bread. Combining it with my other loves – burger and tater tots – make a Cheat Day’s ambrosia.
Add a glass of Cabernet and a good movie – divine.
Happy week three,
P.S. I just got these new balloon wine glasses because I felt my other ones were too boring. They photograph well
P.P.S. To clear my conscious, I added one spinach leaf to the burger.
