Dieting? It really sucks, doesn't it? Especially when you live in Shreveport-Bossier, LA and you're constantly surrounded by the best food in the world!

However, if there's anything we learned during this insane pandemic, it's that eating healthy and staying fit is the best way to avoid getting sick. They say summer bodies are made in the winter but everyone needs a cheat day, especially if you've been dieting for a while! I've always heard that if you're really craving something, you should feed the urge, just in moderation. I've also read that an occasional cheat day can help rev up your metabolism. It's a mental game for a lot of us. So, maybe just stick to the pint of Blue Bell instead of the whole half gallon?

Either way, when I'm ready to break open the calorie bank and go hog wild, these are my favorite place to go and binge on cheat day in Shreveport-Bossier City. BTW, don't judge me... We live in the south and fried food is a staple! Also, I may have a thing for shrimp, carbohydrates, and lots and lots of glorious CHEESE!
