Double cross your diet using these commandments and you’ll progress far more than you would if you were super strict with your food choices.
- Thou shalt have one cheat meal at a time
- Thou shalt hold protein as sacred
- Thou shalt pay attention to food and performance
- Thou shalt be strategic about cheating
- Thou shalt apply perfect timing to your meal
- Patience is thy virtue
- Thou shalt eat free from distractions
- Thy shalt take pride in your food
- Thy rewards shalt not be foods
- Thou shalt observe the 90/10 rule
An all-day buffet is not the venue for cheat meals, keep it moderate and listen up when your stomach says it’s full.
Even if it’s a bowl of pasta, throw a few slices of bacon into it as a firewall for your abs.
Eat bad, train worse. Learn it, live it and take the steps needed not to cheat excessively.
If you’re on a low carb diet and can’t train because you’re exhausted, you need a carb energy top up.
Best times for cheating are the morning or after a heavy lifting session – never late at night.
It’s super good, we get it but don’t rush or you’ll eat beyond fullness. Instead, savor the taste.
Eat with friends or while while listening to music, never watching the TV or you’ll mindless munch beyond your calorific limit.
Fast food is convenient but prepping it yourself means it’ll be healthier, fresher and tastier.
Big achievements should have non-food rewards, like a holiday or new kicks. Food as a prize for abstaining from food doesn't make sense.
For every nine meals you’re allowed a small cheat meal with impunity - a man’s got to live a little.
