Long term weight loss tips #2: You don 't have to cut out your favourite foods!

When looking at weight loss for the long term, you may think that if you embark on this for the rest of your life, you will never get to eat your favourite foods again! This is a horrible thought!

It is also not true! From experience, the best way to do this is to have a "Cheat day". A cheat day will allow you to eat a meal that you really enjoy once per month or once per week. I actually do this myself.
