Cheat days happen, but it doesn’t mean you’re done with keto for good. Look at any setback as an opportunity to grow, and get back in the game. When making your comeback, don’t skip your HIIT workout. These intense workouts deplete glycogen stores better than other types of workouts, and when glycogen is depleted, you’re one step closer to getting back into ketosis.
