Kim Kardashian says it’s okay to cheat… on your diet!
Although Kanye West‘s wife normally eats really clean, she understands the importance of satisfying your cravings!
According to the social media queen:
“I’ve been really strict with my diet, recently… When I grocery shop, I buy lean protein, carbs, fruits and veggies, but every once in a while, I like to treat myself and have a cheat meal. It can be so hard (and boring) to eat really clean all of the time. A cheat meal allows me to enjoy food without feeling like I’m overindulging. My trainer, Mel, instructs that you should schedule a cheat meal about once every 10 days. This way you won’t lose any of the progress you’ve made at the gym.”
Kimmy recommends that you indulge WITHOUT booze, and to do so infrequently. However, the day after you treat yourself, you MUST “get back on track.”
“When you do them too often, your body’s hormones are thrown off… Your testosterone, which is a muscle-making and fat-loss hormone, can change if you’re eating too many calories, which can make you gain weight. You can still enjoy your favorite food, as long as you get back on track the next day. Cheat meals work best when you avoid alcohol, since they’re empty calories filled with sugar. This part is easy for me since I don’t really drink├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥which means I can just have an extra doughnut or two. Kidding! I do have a sweet tooth, though, so normally my cheat meals are desserts or other sweets.”
Judging from her appearance, the 37-year-old clearly knows what she’s talking about!
In February of this year, the mother-of-three revealed she has a 24-inch waist and 39-inch hips.
Kim, whatever you’re doing, keep it up!
