Pretty much eat whatever I want. Saturday wasn't THAT bad but I saw the biggest gain the next morning. Sunday I pigged out and only saw a .2 gain this morning. I've decided that with being on such a low calorie diet, whenever I cheat it makes too big of a dent in my progress. I plan on extending this diet out for another 2 weeks (maybe longer) with no cheating. After than, I'll start working in more calories and have an occasional cheat meal, not an entire day.
