Are you planning to cheat ? if your answer is yes then please stop!⁣

Cheat meal acts as a saviour for your cravings and taste buds but certainly not for the fat loss!⁣ ⁣ •I will explain it in very simple terms-⁣ 1- Let’s say you calculated your maintenance calories - 2500 calories.⁣ ⁣ 2- You want to lose fat and you created a deficit of 500 calories.⁣ ⁣ 3- So you started following 2000 cal diet with a deficit of 500 calories to lose fat⁣ ⁣ 4- 1 week - 7 days, so 7*500cal = 3500 cal of deficit — loosing 1 lbs of fat.⁣ ⁣ 5- So for 4 weeks - 3500*4 = 14000 cal of deficit - loosing 4 lbs of fat.⁣ ⁣ •Cheat meal - 🍟🍔🍧 - So you went to a restaurant and replaced a 500 calories meal with 2500 cal meal⁣ So now you are in 12000 calories of deficit⁣ And you are going to lose - 3.4 lbs of fat instead of 4 lbs⁣ So your rate of fat loss is decreased.⁣ And more cheat meals means more hampering!⁣ ⁣ •Other possibilities- ⁣ 1- Overestimating quantity of oil given, remember even 1 extra gram of fat makes a difference of 9 cal⁣ ⁣ 2- Went to met someone and drank cold drinks, tea and other beverages.⁣ ⁣ 3- Adding more vegetables like onion and tomato to make gravy without measuring.⁣ ⁣ 4- Using salads dressings without measuring calories. ⁣ ⁣ There could be other possibilities too, but these are some common mistakes most of the people do, and these calories add up resulting in altering your fat loss rate.⁣
