I agree. If I have a rest day, I too will eat toward my low end and strive for a deficit.

If I'm taking a total rest day, I accept that I'm not going to hit my calorie burn target but try to also keep my calorie consumption on the low end. The main thing for me is to try to have SOME kind of calorie deficit for the day, even on rest days and days when I'm sick. That's not always possible, but that's okay, too; it's not what you do on one day alone that matters, it's what you do over the course of the week and the month. Even on rest days, though, I'll try to get in some kind of light activity, like going for a walk or something. Hope that helps! It really is a balancing act, more of an art than a science.

These are two seperate questions but I wanted to ask in the same thread so as not to clutter the board. How to you keep to your caloric defecit on rest days. My daily consumption should be 1374 calories and I'm trying for 2 pounds a week. Is there a trick to get the caloric burn up to 2374 calories a day on rest days without actually working out. And what about the days that you're sick? Yesterday I got very sick doing yardwork, the heat got to me and I just got so weak. Thanks all. :)
