I wish I could be as diligent as you all. I guess that means basically every meal for me is a cheat LOL
Ultimate cheat food?

Thankfully they don't offer them very often... and even better, I've managed to resist the temptation this time around. ;)

You can eat whatever you want as long as your calories are the right amount...2000 for a women you can increase that depending on exercise you do
You can eat 4000 cals a day if you can burn 2000 with exercise rougly 2000 being alive you wont gain weight.
Fat content of the food is something to keep an eye on, to much isnt good for the heart...
Thay said you have a trade off between living your life with good food and being fit and healthy...balance is key to happiness!
So either juicy blood rare steak or Indian, Chinese, kebab, burger (not McDonads gunk) chippy are all on the menu in moderation...
For Stella S and to remove doubt from what I said...
A Much-publicized study reported in February 2009, which showed that cutting calories works, regardless of whether you're emphasizing protein or carbohydrates or fat. Conducted by researchers at Harvard and Louisiana State University, the two-year federally-financed study included 811 men and women who were divided into four groups. Each group was put on a different diet:
The overall aim was to reduce calorie intake by 750 per day. None of the diets provided less than 1,200 daily calories. All participants were asked to exercise for 90 minutes per week and to keep a diary of their food consumption. They also received individual counseling every eight weeks and could attend group sessions which were held three out of four weeks during the first six months of the study and two out for four weeks for the following year and a half. Participants who lost the most weight attended the counseling sessions regularly: those who attended two thirds of the sessions over two years dropped about 22 pounds, compared to the average weight loss of nine pounds among all participants.
Results showed an average weight loss of 13 pounds at six months and an average nine pound loss at two years (this mirrors the weight regain seen in many diet studies) no matter what diet they were on.
But the bottom line here was that whatever nutritional mix you prefer, what works in the long run is cutting calories. In other words, the only magic formula for weight loss is eating less calories and exercising more.
The Empasis on federally-Finaced means quite a lot, basicilly impartial and not biased by a dieting company who also do studies which will very loosely prove there products will make you lose weight using any tiny amount of information they can or sometimes out right lie! If someone wants your money, don't believe what they say...hope you learned something.
