In the recent weeks, i've been eating better in attempts to become as fit as possible. I've been watching and consuming a comfortable and proper level of fat (saturated, unsaturated), proteins, carbs, sugar, etc.
My meals for the most part have been "square" - in the sense when i am forced to eat out im eating the healthiest and most appealing item on the menu.
Likewise im exercising regularly during the week 4-5x with p90x and a HIT program ive mixed together with past crossfit experience.
This week, i will have a few instances where an unhealthy meal or 3 is unavoidable - such as indian food for a client lunch (today), upcoming bachelor party where drinking and all sorts of random food will be involved, dinners with old friends at a pizza place, etc.
I feel like im letting myself down by slacking on my diet during these moments. Likewise, going to the gym to "work off" the excess crap i just ate is difficult from a timing perspective also i dont want to be in a situation where im always thinking i need to burn off what i just ate.
What are some things i can do during these moments AFTER a meal to ease my self consciousness about what i just ate? Likewise is there anything i can do (aside from binging or something dumb) to curb the results of just eating poorly?
