How much cheating did you engage in this holiday season?

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created December 25, 2010 at 1:07 AM

Also, for perspective, please include how long you've been paleo. I've been wondering if longevity has effects on the frequency or substance of cheating during obviously vulnerable periods.

Home birth, unassisted. I got delivered her which is kind of cool, but the wife was giving birth to her and directing me so i try and maintain some level of modesty about it, but I am finding it hard to contain myself. It is some sort og scout badge I ma sure, but the wife was the ring leader.

Stephen - You mention Grassfed butter/cheese as a pseudo cheat. Is this because you do not consume dairy regulary? I ask because based on a lot of your other posts, we seem to have a similar dietary framework (leangains-ish, IF, Panu, performance based approach) Just kinda wanted to see where you fall on the dairy product spectrum.

the concern I have, and what keeps me on the straight and narrow.

Leaky Gut or bacterial infections are not things I wish to risk. what can you get with wheat that you cannot replicate with rice flour? they make Gluten Free Everything... everything...cheat with a little sugar... dont risk the gluten.

No grains, did have some tubers though. Darn chips.

Been paleo for about 2 years. Did not get to paleo because of trends though, got here because of issues with celiac and diabetes and eliminating things that caused bad reactions. Sort of more Primal though, Paleo + High fat dairy.

Wife and I just had a baby at home yesterday. #4, a little girl. Our first Primal Baby. Labor was short, pregnancy was easy, and the baby is the most bright and aware of the 4 we have had, and that is saying something.

I'm a paleo newbie, after forgetting to grab a rice cake for breakfast a few weeks ago for breakfast and for the first time in years, did not have stomach pain. Funny how innocent, "hypoallergenic" rice was doing a number on me all this time and I had no idea. (I had already eliminated soy, gluten, and dairy, and after making the grain connection, threw out rice and other grains -- as well as legumes -- from my diet for good.)

Unfortunately, I can't really "cheat" too much on my diet or I'll get terribly ill. Paleo chose me, not the other way around.

That said, I indulged in a couple of truffles this afternoon that had questionable ingredients, but they were a gift, and they tasted pretty darn good. :D Other than the occasional French fry that I've filched from my fella's plate, I don't think I've strayed too much this holiday.

Oh, and last week, I had some weasel-poop coffee (Kopi Luak or 'civet coffee'), about an ounce of wine, and the frosting off some cupcakes. So yeah, guess I did stray a wee bit last week, but my stomach definitely let me know it the next day. It's back to clean eating this week, though, and my body thanks me for it.

I've been Paleo for 4 months now, but I lost 111lbs over the last 6 years, so I have been eating better for a long time.

Today is the first day of a four day window I have given myself not to worry about "cheating".

This morning I had a Panera Cinnamon Crunch bagel. It was wonderful and I haven't had one in over 2 years. The rest of the day was good, except for a chocolate mousse cake for dessert.

Tomorrow I have another bagel for breakfast and the rest of the day again, sans dessert should be Paleo.

The 26th my mom has ordered my very favorite lasagna for dinner and told me that I will eat it. LOL. I will eat it and not worry about it.

The 27th she is making a turkey dinner (my sister and nieces are coming in from NH). I love my mom's stuffing and I will eat it.

I'm okay with all of this. I am not celiac. I do not have any real reactions to wheat. I am planning on going completely gluten free and dairy free for January. I no longer doubt my ability to come back to healthy eating after a "cheat".

And there will be a lot of red wine. Which I do not even consider a cheat.

Over 2 years, and 105lbs of fat loss. (9mo to drop the weight)


My pseudo cheats are white rice (with sushi), grassfed butter/cheese. Red wine.

No intention of changing these either.

I eat tubers post exercise but don't consider that cheating at all.

I consider everything I eat healthy. Even the wine cheese and rice.

And yes, it gets A LOT easier as time passes.

I've been gluten and soy free for about three years. Down at least 85 pounds. (Four wardrobe changes.) Skin and digestive issues resolved. There is no cheating on gluten and soy. Ever. That said, I thought I was kind of superior when I first read this question days ago. I "never" cheat! Then last night, over wine with old friends, I ate some of the most ridiculous finger food. Just because it was there. Peanuts (dry roasted...MSG-filled) and some weird candied pineapple fuckers. So, I am not so superior after all, as it turns out. Rats. At any rate, I agree with Stephen Aegis on the wine. It's part of my diet and I like it. But no more candied pineapple pieces and no more peanuts. I feel somewhat unclean this morning...

My daughter and I have been GF for three years, Paleo for one. Not much cheating because I have cooked and baked up products that we can eat and we bring them with us. Coconut flour muffins, pumpkin pie with nut crust, pancakes, coconut flour bread, bacon wrapped goodies (dates, livers, water chestnuts, pineapple...) free range turkey. If I cheat at all it will be things like a baked brie with rice crackers and maybe some black rice with my chicken curry. Still gluten free, just not what Grok would have chowed down on.

A few days ago I ate a bunch of cookies that I made as well as one's brought over to my house from the neighbors. (I also ate pasta) The next day I was sick (cold symptoms & no energy) and I directly link it to sugar/wheat consumption combined with stress of the holidays. I learned my lesson! paleo for a year.

During family festival meals (Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, New Year, etc.) I give myself free rein. I don't think it's a big deal.

I wind up not cheating too much, though, because honestly, I'd rather eat the amazing meaty centerpiece and the other whole, primal foods available than the bready stuff. There are some desserts that are my weakness, but again, it's only one day and I'm not a "sweets" person otherwise, so no problem.

Gulp... I'd been doing pretty well, with only the occasional small bits of dairy or gluten in cooked dishes. I wake up all mucous-y the next day every time I consume even small amounts of dairy or gluten, so I know well enough to stay away. But then... I pigged out on 13oz container of Nutella. It on was a day after wrapping up a period of prolonged stress, getting some new bad news, and just generally feeling out of whack from PMS and what feel like kidney stone pains. Not great to eat something industrially processed and with questionable ingrediants, but I thoroughly enjoyed every spoonful :).

I'm ready to move on now, and I can honestly say that I think the paleo food I cook at home is so much more delicious than all the SAD-palette family and restaurant food I've sampled during the holidays. What I once thought was delicious, now just tastes overly salty or sickly sweet. Mostly, the holidays confirmed that I'm not missing out on anything by sticking to paleo. Did anyone else experience this?

(I've only been Paleo for about 2 months, but I've been gluten and dairy free for almost 2 years now.)

Never anything with gluten, but sugar is a big cheat this time of year. The trick is to just make enough GF cookies and treats to get through the couple of days before/after Christmas then back to paleo/primal after. The nice thing about paleo is that you WANT to go back to it again, so a few days of "cheating" is really more like taking advantage of that honey stash in the tree.

I'm cheating my arse off! And while the food tastes great I feel like a big, bloated, blob of fat. I've been eating strictly primal/paleo for the last two years so this is a rare occasion for me. i'm trying to see how much weight i can gain in a week and how quickly i can get back to my "pre-christmas" weight. I haven't eaten so many baked goods and bread in a LONG time!

I've been Paleo since July 1st of this year. For Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, I'm going to be somewhat carefree. My tradition is to make Prime Rib (perfectly Paleo) and Yorkshire pudding (not so much). I'm going to enjoy it with gusto. I had a beer last night, along with some desserts that contained wheat.

Our bodies have an incredible ability to heal if not confronted with continual assaults. A short cheat period will not do me any more harm than if I came down with a cold, or if I strained a muscle playing soccer, or any other short-term inflammatory event (IMHO).

I'm fortunate that gluten does not give me any overt distress.

Yesterday I had 1 glass of champagne, 2 glasses of dry white wine and some 85% organic chocolate. No starchy stuff, no dairy - I'm just not interested in...

I had some white rice pasta for homemade mac and cheese. It's a tradition. Other than that, Nada. I really have no desire to cheat.

I did a lot better over Christmas than I did at Thanksgiving, which is really good considering I had three days of Christmas feasting. My Christmas cheats were one piece of pumpkin role and some chocolates.

I've been paleo for almost a year now. This christmas has been difficult.
I'm visiting my grandmother. She's given me tons of recepies that were easily made paleo. However, she doesn't cook anymore, and she won't let me cook because I'll make a mess (which I will, but I'll clean it up.)

The options she gave me for breakfast today were microwavable sandwich things (ingredients list a mile long), cereal, or toast. She doesn't have a single egg in her house!!! And for lunch she took us out to olive garden. (thank you soup and salad option)

Two more days of IF and scavenging. and her bugging me that I'm too skinny. (Last year I was too fat, which I was)

On the other hand, if this woman had listened to her doctors then she's been dead for 15 years.

I've been paleo about eight weeks, and had to cheat a little because I had my Christmas meal at someone else's house, and had to choose from what they offered. I put non-paleo on my plate and just picked at it politely, potatoes and legumes. I pigged out on the meat to make up. Then I passed on dessert.

Cheated overly yesterday, but only because I strayed from my rule of limiting choices not quantity: only one dessert although I can have more than one piece.

Like others, though, these are more "refeeds" than cheats.:)

I'm going strong I had sweet potatoes twice today with coconut (but worked out twice), and a decent amount of booze. Other than that, everything is on point. I enjoy planning my holiday meals now, I get to look forward to great food. Doesnt meanI have to cheat per say. Im gonna have some chocolate now

I'm eating cookies from my gourmet dessert chef auntie. It was always a big excitement while I was growing up, and even though I'm experiencing some discomfort, soon they will be gone and I'll be back on track ;D
