    I was curious if we can flex what day to do the cheat meal. I was debating on saving it for Valentines 😁

    Hey there- for best results with the challenge, Nicole recommends the cheat meal the weekend following week 4 (at the end of the building phase), immediately preceding the start of the cutting phase (week 5). The weekend of Valentine’s Day you will be 1 week into your leaning out/cutting phase and it’s not ideal to interrupt the deficit with the caloric/macro surplus that a cheat meal contains.

    The cheat meal is designed to be a mental and physical reprieve from the first 4 weeks (a mini “diet break”) before the homestretch last 4 weeks of the deficit.

    So it would be best to not incorporate a cheat meal until after the first phase? I was also looking at planning a healthier cheat meal option.

    Nicole covers all of this at the bottom of the Nutrition Section of the challenge under the heading “Optional Refeed Meal”
