ok so I was getting frustrated with the scale the past month or more...working so hard and getting slim results, so I decided to look up on the msg boards something that might help. I came across an old series of msgs about zig zagging your calories. I've heard of it before and thought ok...why not. So I gave it a try this past week and *drumroll please* I lost FIVE pounds! I'm eating the same amount of calories for the week that I would of...just in different amts each day instead of 'evenly' and it works! I'm so happy and getting sooooooooooo close to Onederland I can't stand it! I feel like I'm about to win the lottery or something!
I will definitely be calorie cycling again this week! I think the change up was just what I needed.
For those interested here's my take on it and what I did:
I usually eat around 1200 calories so that was my "regular" day and I adjusted around that.
1st day: low calories (900)
2nd day: high calories (1500)
3rd day: low (900)
4th day: very high (1800)
5th day: very low (600)
6th day: high (1500)
7th day: regular (1200)
I still exercised like always....5x's a week at least 30 mins a day.
