CHEATING........ON YOUR DIET....... NOT THE OTHER THING YOU WERE THINKING

When you diet you usually restrict your carbs, fat or both. When you really restrict your fat intake, it may lower your testosterone. Low carb diet could reduce your thyroid hormone ( you know the one that regulates your metabolism).
Low T will make it hard to retain muscle mass and low levels of your thyroid hormone wil...l halt your fat loss. Sooooo, slipping in a cheat meal could reset the above hormones and temporairly spark your metabolism. Like hitting the reset button. This only works if you have been 'good' 90% of the time.
RULES? If you are on a low fat diet, eat foods like prime rib, cheescake OR any other food high in fat. If your low carb, pizza and french fries or any other high carb cheat. Dinner is a perfect time to cheat, just after your tough training. Just limit your eating time to 45 min and do this once a week.
