MYST 140 : Cheat Meals

Of course, I never cheat when I log my food!

Do you have “cheat meals” or “cheat days” in your diet plan? Stop! You are reducing your chance of long term success!

I don’t mean “stop eating foods not on your diet plan” but rather “stop calling them cheat days.” You are setting yourself up for failure if you need to have cheat days in order to stay on your path. And at the same time, you are setting up your scapegoat for your eventual failure.

    Hi, Coach T! I have been listening to your podcasts for a couple of weeks now, and have gone back to your very first episode, working my way forward. Of course when there is a new episode, I do listen immediately! I know I will go back and listen to them all again and again!! Your inspiring perspectives and common sense approaches have helped me to reframe how I see this journey – a LIFELONG commitment!

    Thank you sharing your story and for your dedication to helping others! PLEASE keep these podcasts coming! The tips, tools and strategies are supremely valuable!!

    By the way I love this podcast and it is so true. It is not cheating if you choose to eat it.
