Everyone feels differently about the concept of cheat days. Some find them to be absolutely necessary to keep their diet on track, while others see them as complete no-nos. Many are also totally conflicted, unable to confidently weigh the pros and cons.

The thing is, people are never going to come to one, unanimous decision about cheat days. Why? Because we’re all different. Our bodies crave different things and our minds work differently. The one thing we have in common, however, is that after a cheat day — purposeful or not — we want to get back on track. How? With Noom!

According to a Noom blog post, “Using food as a reward can change your relationship with food in a negative way,” creating more guilt in your diet. A cheat day doesn’t have to feel like a disappointment. instead, you can see it as an opportunity to re-evaluate what’s going to work best for you moving forward. Your Goal Specialist can help you figure out how to work your favorite treats into your everyday diet too so that you won’t even feel the need for a cheat day!

Remember that a cheat day isn’t necessarily going to halt your progress. You have to look ahead, not back to keep moving forward. Otherwise, you might trip over your own two feet and fall further behind. Noom can not only give you those first steps to moving forward again, but the steps after that as well so you can keep it going.
