I got derailed with New Years earlier this year and have been struggling to get back on track. I have done it several times this year, for about 2 weeks at a time, before I derail again. While on vacation earlier this month, I read an article about a 2 day diet. This week I decided to give it a try, hoping it might work better for me.
The premise is that 2 days a week, you eat a high protein, low calorie diet and the rest of the week, eat normal. "Normal" means like a normal person who does not need to lose weight, it doesn't mean you can eat whatever you want. I am just completing my 2nd day of the high protein, low calorie plan. It is hard on those days, but the other days are easier for me in that I don't have to be so restrictive. I am still logging my food to keep me honest and try to eliminate binges.
I think I am just sick of dieting all the time. I need to feel normal some days and not be so restrictive every day. Maybe after I have gotten back on track, I can forgo this extra step, but right now i am hoping it is just what I need to get back on track permanently.
