Cheat days. We all have them. It’s a relief from a stringent eating plan, recovery from a late night out or just a craving satisfied. Veering off the path of healthy eating for a day or two isn’t the end of the world – in moderation. Make it a habit, and you could end up in a cycle of unhealthy food choices.
