Is this your brand on Milled? You can claim it.

Whether you’re new to keto or you’ve been in ketosis for months, you’ve no doubt been tempted to take a cheat day. But should you?

A cheat day is more than just too many calories in – a cheat day can do serious damage to your health and your fitness goals.

Here are 3 reasons to take a pass on the cheat day.

1. A Cheat Day Can Knock You Out of Ketosis

This is probably the most obvious reason not to take a cheat day on keto. You worked hard to get into ketosis, and one cheat day can knock you right out of it. Getting knocked out of ketosis is problematic for three reasons. Click HERE to read more!

2. A Cheat Day Can Create a Vicious Cycle

Keto reduces carb cravings which makes it easier to resist them.  A cheat day takes you backward and can increase your cravings for carbs. If you give in to the cravings, then it creates more cravings, and it’s even harder to get back on track.

3. A Cheat Day Can Cause Blood Sugar Spikes

If you’ve been low-carb for weeks or months, one cheat meal (especially a super high-carb cheat meal) can send your body into a tizzy. Read more about that HERE!
A cheat day may seem like a good idea at the moment, but there are many reasons to summon the will power and skip the cheat day. Whatever you’re craving, adapt the recipe, or find a keto-friendly version. There’s a way to satisfy a craving without cheating on keto. Try these recipes to curb your cravings.
