FAQ on Cheat Days part I
We are back on FAQs
I often get asked about Cheat Days, and I have to admit, they make me cringe. I am going to need a few days to explain my reasons for being opposed.
Cheat Days reinforce the old diet mentality of being on or off. I have a way of eating, a way of life and it doesn’t change if the calendar does. I have accepted Sugar and I can not peacefully coexist, so why would I invite it back into my life in on my Birthday?
I don’t because once I decided I was done, I couldn’t look back. I had to find a new way to celebrate without foods I know are problematic.
Much like breaking up with a bad boyfriend, I had to wrap my brain around the concept of never returning to the source of so much chaos.
