Yesterday, I said it would be OK to cheat, because the diet plan itself would make up for it. But, I stated a caveat as well: don’t cheat much.
I need to explain that. The plan is to get an average number of pennies you currently eat in an average day. Then, set that as a goal for future days. Finally, after settling in on a number of pennies, we’ll reduce that number.
Later (and I’ll explain this in more detail later), we’ll reduce that number again and again.
Eventually, we’ll hit a number of pennies that is less than the true average you were eating at the start of the plan. So, if you cheated early on, these reductions will make up for some or all of the cheating you did. But, it will take longer to get there.
