The theory is that since cheat days increase the production of leptin, they boost your metabolism. This should then cause your body to burn more calories after overeating. Leptin is a peptide hormone (consisting of amino acid chains) that is secreted by the body’s fat cells and controls hunger and feelings of satiety. However, the extent to which leptin controls body weight is still a subject of debate among scientists. Whether leptin production actually increases after a cheat day or a refeeding day is still being studied. Overeating is thought to boost your body’s metabolism by no more than 3-10% (over a maximum of 24 hours). My suggestion? Have a cheat day once in a while and don’t be afraid to indulge! If you train hard, why not treat yourself? #cheatday#indulgence#fastfood#sweets#donutbar#homer#fitness#junkfood#selfindulgence#dessert#foodie#goodeats#sandiego#california#treatyoself#gymrat#foodforrhought#metabolism#diet#trainer#coaching#eatgood#gains#carbs#tipsandtricks

🎁🎅Wouldn’t you agree that the best part of this season is that everyone is in the spirit of doing, random acts of kindness!? 🤲⠀
Though I practice giving all year round, this holiday I made an extra effort to shop local & support my fellow comrades in their small businesses.⠀
This special collaboration was with the purpose of creating a holiday self care indulging gift box! And I’m ecstatic I got to do it with theses two lovely boss ladies 👇❤️⠀
@herbal_botanics sells homemade bath salts and so much more⠀
@lightislovecandles sells amazing soy candles! I can’t express enough how amazing they smell! Definitely brings the holiday spirit to the home!⠀
G&H : And if you didn’t know David and I have high quality natural self care/ hygiene products we offer and use all the time in our home.⠀
