I mentioned the other day how I always used to struggle with eating too little and then in turn eating too much because it just wasn’t sustainable.
I’d always do great Monday through Friday and then the weekends would hit and I’d pull myself completely off track.
I have a cheat meal.
I’d stop tracking.
I’d go out with friends.
I’d buy foods I usually didn’t (𝘸𝘩𝘪𝘤𝘩 𝘰𝘧𝘵𝘦𝘯 𝘳𝘦𝘴𝘶𝘭𝘵𝘦𝘥 𝘪𝘯 𝘦𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘮 𝘢𝘭𝘭).
And then I would wonder why I wasn’t seeing the progress I was working so hard for. 𝘚𝘰𝘶𝘯𝘥 𝘧𝘢𝘮𝘪𝘭𝘪𝘢𝘳?
Especially with the holidays I see this all the time, but what if I told you there’s a way you can actually eat more during your parties, weekends, and events and still make progress.
There are many ways to cycle calories but one of my favorite approaches is to pull calories down slightly during your routine days and bump things up for the weekends, holiday parties, etc…
So long as your weekly calorie intake is averaging in a deficit, those higher days will even out.

For every weekend you have off track you are holding yourself back, but with this approach that no longer needs to be the case. It’s all about striving for that balance.
