Top 10 Holiday Cheat Foods… (What’s Your Favorite?)

By Rob Poulos...

With the big American Thanksgiving just around the corner, it’s time we shared our favorite holiday tradition…


While it is against common sense that eating cheat food could actually help your fat loss, lucky for us there are times (like the holidays) when this is exactly the case.  I go into more detail on a previous post about this, but to quickly sum it up, a fat melting hormone called Leptin is released when you cheat strategically, and has been proven again and again to provide tremendous fat loss results!

Before we get to our top 10 cheat foods,  just a reminder that you’ll save over 50% while using every single holiday dessert, party, and meal (starting with Thursday’s BIG Thanksgiving feast) to your advantage this holiday season in order to simply LOSE up to 21 pounds in the next six weeks… but only until MIDNIGHT TONIGHT…

Alright, so let’s get to it and share our top cheat foods with each other… we’ll get the ball rolling with:

Rob & Kalen’s Top 10 Holiday Cheat Foods

Keep in mind we usually try to stay on the healthy side of things when employing strategic cheat days throughout the year, but during the holiday we allow for some of the stuff we don’t really touch the rest of the year…

10. Spinach & Artichoke Dip (Kalen loooves this one)

9. Chocolate Covered Pretzels (keep a few of these on hand to ensure a solid holiday cheat day)

8. Stuffing (typical holiday fare, though this is more Kalen’s realm than mine)

7. Gravy-fied Dark Meat (me on this one…)

6. Delivery Pizza (one of our fave cheat meals with the kids on one of those lazy days between xmas and new years)

5. Gingerbread Cookies (frosted or plain, I eat the head first!)

4. Cherry Pie (that Warrant song from the 80’s almost ruined this for me… almost)

3. Pumpkin Pie (a classic… to be enjoyed once or twice a year)

2. Egg Nog (another classically naughty food, though not my style, but Kalen is all over this one)

1. Apple Pie ala mode (Kalen goes for straight apple pie, I add the ice cream, perhaps my biggest kryptonite!)

Alright, I hope you enjoyed peeking into some of our favorite holiday cheat foods… now it’s only fair… POST YOUR FAVORITE CHEAT FOOD (HOLIDAY OR OTHERWISE) IN THE COMMENTS BELOW…

Here’s to a leaner you this holiday season,
Rob & Kalen

    Well, I know it isn’t really holiday “food” but im a sucker for irish coffee come christmas (coffee made with baileys). I don’t really have a “cheat” food, its more like… the relatives keep chucking chocolate at me and my brothers!

    I am looking forward to “cheating” with a piece of pecan pie! My sister makes the best!!

    I don’t always enjoy the cheat foods at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Turkey isn’t always our style, but we do love the Turkey Cuttlets and fry them in a little peanut oil. I know, I know…frying. But the peanut oil is better for you and it doesn’t take long in the oil. We drain them (keeping them warm in the oven). I also am with Kalen on the stuffing. My daughter adds pine nuts. I can’t eat them so I add craizens, almonds and onions. We also make our own homemade stuffing bread with the fresh spices cooked in. We like our pumpkin pie made with part squash, the banana squash is yummy using only half the milk and all the spices. We use skim milk and it is still great.

    Definitely egg-nog and pumpkin pie! I’m grateful those two only show up 2 months out of 12- otherwise I’d have to make steps to drastically improving my food discipline!!

  5. Top drink: Eggnog from Publix Supermarkets (they make their own) sans the rum.
    Top dessert: Red Velvet Cake with the cream frosting that you make from scratch

  6. Love Cherry Pie

  7. Ruth

    Pumpkin pie and home made caramels!

  8. Joan M.


  9. Cara L.

    Cookies!!! ahm, ahm ahm ahm!!! You got cookies? Me want cookies!!!!!

  10. Stuffing from inside the turkey, with drippings and dark meat from the pan!

  11. Jodie

    The giant bowl with every kind of nut-in-the-shell and another bowl with every kind of dried fruit always start it all off! This year I’ll sample 5 or 6 from each one. At the traditional turkey dinner, I’ll take a normal portion of turkey but save lots of room, because it always ends with pumpkin pie, squash pie, mince pie, cranberry-raisin pie, Indian pudding and Poor-Man’s Pudding, so give me 1 teaspoon of each and DON’T FORGET THE ICE CREAM!!
