Don’t Let Your Weekend Eating Set Back Your Weight Loss Progress From The Week

By | Diet, Fat Burning, Intermittent Fasting, Weight Loss | No Comments

For many people, the weekend indulgences can undo their weight loss progress and success from the week.  Two steps forward and one step back.  This becomes very discouraging on Monday morning.  The lack of routine and the added social aspect of the weekend is a big temptation to indulge and go WAY off of our eating plan making it very difficult to get any real progress.

My advice is to limit the hours in the weekend when you will be going “off plan” and create a part of the weekend days to allow your body to burn fat and drop some water weight.  Usually, the most tempting time of the weekends is the late afternoon or evening when having dinner or going out so put your mornings and early afternoons to work for you.  

Eat low carb all day starting with eggs for breakfast but skipping the starch and fruit and having some protein with a salad or steamed veggies for lunch.  You could even try some intermittent fasting, skipping breakfast, and not start eating until midday, keeping to the low carb options.  This will better allow your body to burn fat all day and drop some of the water weight you may have picked up from eating carbs and salty food the night before.

This also limits the time you have to indulge in “off plan” eating to just the evenings, providing some damage control.  Of course, the ideal plan would be to stick to your eating plan all weekend except for one cheat meal, not day, but every weekend won’t be perfect.  By the way, alcohol will have less of a fat storage effect if you’re not eating carbs while your drinking.

Intermittent fasting provides a longer fasted period during the day during which your body has to rely more on fat stores. This may take a couple weeks to get used to at first, but your body will get more efficient at releasing and using stored fat for fuel and will supply your energy needs until your first meal, usually around lunch time. Ideally you want to have about a 16 hour window from the last time you ate the day before until your first meal the next day.
