#117 Lizzy and Dean - The 'Cheat Meal' & 'Free Meal' Confusion

Season #1

We all know 'cheat meals' are outdated and no reputable coach promotes them anymore. 'Free meals' / 'off plan meals' however... go for it! But what happens when people (coaches or athletes) don't truly grasp the difference in the function and guidelines of 'cheats' and 'free meals'? In this episode, we explain why understanding the differences is so important, and how to get the benefits of 'free meals' without the residual baggage of 'cheat meals'.
