Okay so sometimes a cheat is absolutely unavoidable, like the following case:
A woman emailed asking how she could minimize the damage from the required wedding cake tasting she had to go for her wedding. Her plan was to “look like a weirdo” as she put it (love that! Yes be weird and be proud!) and “take one small tiny bite of each of the 6 samples.”
So I have discussed recovering from unplanned MAJOR cheats but in this case where it’s something relatively small and unavoidable, what kind of planning can be done in advance?
1. Skip your hCG shot that day.
Even though hCG actually stays in your system for 72 hours, the amount does gradually reduce as the hours wear on, so it makes sense that having a little less hCG in your system on the day of the “cheat” may aid in having less negative effects.
2. Eat only your 2 proteins and the phase 2 veggies that day (outside of the small cheat items).
By removing the Phase 2 fruit and melba servings, this is where the main source of sugar and carbs is on the VLCD, so this will possibly help “balance” out whatever sugar/carb content you’ll be taking in with the cheat items.
3. Drink plenty of water.
Water is always good for flushing things out. Can’t go wrong there!
