To be successful with a diet, you not only need to know when to make diet adjustments but when to take diet breaks also.
A diet break refers to a planned period of 4–14 days, where we increase calorie intake and loosen the counting restrictions we place on ourselves.
They help break up the monotony of a diet and make adherence easier. When you have a lot of fat to lose, it can be very tough to stay motivated for months on end. Similarly, when you’re trying to get shredded lean, the body fights back harder during the last stages of the diet.
