It is been widely known that in the fitness community cheat days and cheat meals have become very popular over the last several years for obvious reasons… people LOVE carbs so this gives them a chance to take a “diet break”, which can serve as a great physical and psychological reward.
They also help to “re-set” those 2 fat burning hormones (leptin and thyroid) we mentioned above.

Performing some type of HIIT like this free 8 minute body weight workout before you cheat is going to ramp up your metabolism and turn it into a fat burning furnace.
Carb Trick # 2 Avoid Fruit and Processed Foods

Here are a few that are considered o.k to eat from time to time.
On the other hand, high fructose corn syrup in a lot of processed foods actually will suppress letpin levels.
Carb Trick # 3 Drinking Alcohol

Avoid binge drinking as this will suppress leptin levels which is responsible for fat loss.
Carb Trick # 4 Water

Drinking a gallon of water will also help you to not eat over the amount of calories your body needs.
Carb Trick # 5 Do Not Weigh Yourself
Stay off the scale for at least 72 hours. The reason for this is your mind will play tricks on you making you think that you gained fat when actually you’re just holding water from all the carbs you ate over the weekend.
For every gram of carbs you ingest equals about 3 ounces of water, so don’t panic it’s not fat!
