Have you heard about the 2-day diet?

Saturday, March 23, 2013

I already do some calorie-cycling, and, it seems that some of the concepts of this diet "fit" with some of the dieting strategies that I've been successful with.

In the 2-day diet, all you need to do is follow a low-carb, low calorie diet for two days a week. For the rest of the week you simply eat normally, but sensibly. In clinical trials, followers of The 2-Day-Diet lost twice as much fat and more centimetres around their waist than those on a continuous calorie-controlled diet.

There's a lot that makes sense to me in that. I wouldn't have to make very many changes to test some of those theories out.

    Sounds good Faith. I might just try this, as it might help me get the right weightloss mindset back.

  think the focus would be on what ate on the other days....but could see it working for me if I say had no wheat for two days and then could add them back.

    I've heard of this diet. I think it would be fairly easy to follow and that's probably why the success rate is as it is. Most people can follow an eating plan for two days if they know they can eat "regular" the rest of the week. As long as the people did eat "sensibly," I could see it working.

    Sounds interesting. Makes sense. I do sort of follow this now, really watching what I eat two or three days a week so I can enjoy regular meals with my husband.

Thanks for sharing.
