Consisted of:

3 bratwurst with sautéed onions, 1 with a whole wheat bun.
2 cups of mixed veggie salad.
6 x 4 oz glasses of wine
1 cup of raspberry mousse

Over a 4-hour period at my party I was having.

Yes I feel like total crap 1 hour later. For all you clean eaters out there like myself, the cheat meal is not worth the next 8 hours of gut pain. I feel like I'm going to :puke0000:.

Crap, that's not all that bad a "cheat" meal. Must not eat much spicy food/high fats? Or maybe it was the wine.

Being someone with a weakness for red wine...I can attest to how awful too many glasses every now and then can make you feel. Your 6 servings adds up to a whole bottle over 4 hours. Yikes! It's pretty tough to eat clean ALL the time...but I agree with Matt, it wasn't all that bad for a cheat meal. I guess our bodies are pretty darn good at reminding us to keep the excess "crap foods" away! BTW, it takes a strong-willed person to go for 7 months without a single cheat meal...I applaud you!

Hell, that's a good meal for me. You need to "cheat" more often.

I believe that if somethings worth doing, then it's worth doing right. Now here's a real cheat meal, and I can guarantee atleast 24 hours of guilt instead of 8. One big mac, with a large order of fries, and for desert, one dozen oreo cookies in a large bowl and covered completely by one quart of double caramel fudge ice cream. Shameful! Make that 48 hours of guilt.

Heck, I had a darn near cheat week when I was staying at some dorms for a 5-day skating clinic, I tried to make the best of it, but I had to eat what was there (didn't have extra money to go buy other meals)

A cheat mean to me is a trip to the sushi buffet. Do not feel so bad.

I had some fast food ~2 weeks ago; it was the first time in 7+ months. It was a chocolate Frosty from Wendy's... It was far too sweet for my tastes. Didn't even like it.

Note:
I was with a friend, and I followed him into Wendy's without planning to buy anything. I didn't. He offered the Frosty to me. Of course, that's no excuse.

I'm just back from Berlin from my stag party - try not cheating there at the Beer Festival! It was a whole beer/rum/bratwurst/jaegermeister/fries/pizza/burgers/donuts and more beer hell for 3 days!!! Now I think this is going to take a while to recover from. So that puts your cheat meal into perspective George!

The funny and ironic thing is that many people think "oh god, it's just SO hard to keep this strict eating habits.. i would loooove some dirty food". And sooner or later they'll go for it and the thing that they've waited for all those months makes them feel like crap! Same thing with travelling - many people thinks it's so boooring at home, but when they finally take a vacation once in a while they miss home after a couple of days. Learn to love your habits, and be sure to make some good ones - not that I doubt that anyone in here don't :happy:

All the best,

Jonas
