Is having a cheat day on a diet okay?

I've been dieting for about a month now working out everyday, pushing myself . I never cheat on my diet but today I was hungry and craving pop corn gold fish crackers and just ate them. This never happened! I've just had a long stressful day. I probably didn't eat 3,500 calories enough to gain a pound... show more I've been dieting for about a month now working out everyday, pushing myself .
