For this one:
- Do not 'buy into' cheat meals for stoking the metabolism (Another propagated nutritional dogma shouted by many. Having 1 cheat meal during contest dieting will NOT manifest into a normalization or correction of a slower metabolism. It will help out psychologically and aid in glycogen replenishment and boost energy for more motivation the following days. To really 'flip the script' on metabolic slow down, ie; lower T3, leptin, RMR etc... you would need to overeat for 4-5 days most likely and then risk some fat accrual....just use high carbs days for mental and cosmetic benefits.)
so does it mean you should only have cheat meals when you actually (psychologically) need one and not making it a habit or having the misconception that cheat will fasten your metabolism?
