I would definitely recommend a cheat day if you want one but I would make it a paleo cheat day. Skip the pizza. Maybe have some dairy like ice cream. Just don't do gluten. There are so many cheat foods that you can have that won't harm your... (more)

Usually by Monday, we run out of delicious meat/fish/eggs. So we eat tofu for dinner. Is it okay for once a week? And also, is it okay to eat rice a little everyday? It's like 80/20. What do you think?

I personally have no luck scheduling cheats. I think it fetishizes the "forbidden" foods too much. I'm much better when I only have "cheats of opportunity": unplanned cheats that just happen because of unforseen circumstances.
