Any of you do cheat meals after a week of hard training?

    I don’t wanna bore anyone with the details, but I usually have a huuuuge cheat meal every weekend when I gather around my buddies. It’s just one gigantic meal and some cappuccinos afterwards (usually it’s around 5,000 calories). Then on the next day I’d have a steak for dinner or something like that. I do feel sluggish on the weekend but I make sure I have enough energy by the start of the week to train again. What’s suprising is my weight stays the same and I feel more refreshed mentally.

    Of course, unless your required to make weight for a bout, listen to your body and eat what you want to. I've always believed that your body will crave foods that feature particular micro-nutrients that you've lost from exertion, so if your suddenly craving gingerbread or liver pate etc, its because your nutritionally deficient in some facet.

    Vitamin pills just aren't a good substitute, sadly,

    My own experience was similar to yours, I used to literally gorge on food after long sparring / hard sessions - although I think that was a mental (you expend enough calories and a mental trip gets flicked imo) rather than physical thing.

    As a lifetime distance runner well 36 years I dont see how you can do it
    I did a hard six mile hill session first thing and have needed a lot of food though out the day Not fat boy food but just fruit and veg . OK I had two pints but it was my Granddaughters birthday !
    I cant see how you guys can put the hard training in and skip on the intake
