How often does everyone cheat? What's an acceptable amount of time in between cheats and do you cheat at family events like parties and the holidays?
Well, I've answered this question at least twice already:
Search around, this topic has been widely discussed.
I think for most people this evolves over time. It's not unusual to have a few "couldn't help myself" in the early months, then as health/control improve it becomes a personal choice but rarely involves frequent/massive neo-binges.
I've been paleo for about 2 months now and I cheat almost once a week. It's usually if we go out to dinner. I'll keep paleo in mind when ordering, but not get too picky about my meal. It's always somewhat planned and it's always a give and take. I might order fish that has a bit of rice with it, but skip the dessert. I have had a couple of bigger cheats, but they made me feel crummy, so I'm less likely to do that very often.
