What is reward day on the Excel Diet?

On the Excel Diet the goal is to lose a pound a week. This translates into 1/7 of a pound per day.

Since a pound is 3500 calories it is also around 500 calories per day. The Excel Diet spreadsheet automatically calculates this daily goal.

When you go below this value it is called reward day. This is because on this day you can eat what you want and don't have to exercise.
