Cheat Day Tips On Leg Day:
1) Eat protein with your carbs.
You can’t go wrong with eggs or chicken. They are high in protein and low in fat. Chicken tend to have less calories than other meats so they will keep you full longer.
Eggs are good for breakfast too!
2) If you want to get extra healthy, make sure you don’t skip breakfast.
Make it a point to eat something nutritious like fruits and vegetables first thing in the morning. Avoid processed foods like cookies, cakes, pastries and junk food. These things are not going to give you energy for anything else!
3) If you’re feeling really energetic all day long then try adding some green tea into your coffee along with any caffeine supplements.
Green tea helps regulate blood sugar levels and can even improve mental performance.
4) If you’re looking for a way to stay energized throughout the day, try taking a vitamin B complex supplement.
Vitamin C is another great one to take because it increases red blood cell production which aids in oxygen transport through the body.
