Can I have a cheat meal and if so how often ? Yesterday I drank half a coke and ate some instant soup I feel really guilty right now. I've been eating very healthy like no bread sugars takeout etc. Can somebody please give me a tip or something of the sort

Allow yourself little rewards after you've completed a goal. Like if your goal is to work out 4 times a week, allow yourself some take out after you've done it.

Besides the reward, same as with the workouts, you have to 'shock' your body once in awhile so that it cannot  adapt to certain circumstances (that's why diets all must fail). So actually it's good to cheat sometimes (at least every two weeks) and go clean again afterwards.

Think of it as a 'carb-loading' day

I will not say don't have cheat meals but I will say is be careful ! I do not have cheat meals. Am sure you don't want to be going back and forth on this journey. I see it as a journey that should progress and not fluctuate.
  You imagine, instead of burning the accumulated calories from your cheat meals, why not burn from the previous one and reach your goal(s) faster?
   It's a thing of the mind dear. You can do it. Only remain positive ! I can guarantee you that as long as you are here, and determined, you will never be discouraged. Keep it going!  It's worth it.
