Learn how these superstar celebs use cheat days to help them stay on track!
Known for her action-star roles, Jessica always seems to be getting in shape for a new film — which, she says, can get old. After training for 2011’s Total Recall, Jessica said she had cheat days “once a week at least” when on her meal plan. “It’s the hardest experience, it really is, ’cause you’re eating a lot of boring stuff: chicken breasts and vegetables all the time. But it’s cakes and pastas and breads and sandwiches and croissants (you crave) all the time. That’s all you can think about . . . [so] you don’t crack just slightly, you crack bad. I was with my girlfriends, we were out in New York City for a night, it was the cheat day. I saw Dunkin’ Donuts. I said, ‘Pull the car over, pull over right now!’ We ran in, I got 24 donuts. We went to a pizza joint, and we got two large pizzas. I sat in the car and I put as much bread and dough in my mouth as I could possibly manage. It was the best moment,” she said on the Graham Norton Show.
Sandra’s cheat day is well timed for weekend fun. “I start Friday night and I end Saturday night. But it is not so regimented. I’ll make lists of what I want to eat this week or next week,” she told InStyle. “I love sweets, like Viennese pastry, raw cookie dough, or a nice bowl of Lucky Charms with milk that I eat in bed watching SNL. That’s heaven right there!”
To stay in shape, Beyoncé pays attention to her diet — except on her cheat day. “I do have to work out and watch what I eat,” she told Elle. “I’m not someone who can go crazy. I’ll usually have cereal for breakfast and a salad for lunch and a light dinner, and then on Sundays I’ll allow myself to have whatever I want.”
