I guess that's what I do. I still count my calories and watch my eating. But, my high calorie days are pretty much natural. I don't plan them. They are the days that I've eaten out or events are happening.

I love naturally calorie cycling but I also like planning for it. Works both ways!

For 25 years I did this and naturally maintained a healthy weight. When I got pregnant, both times I put on weight and that is what I have been working on taking off. I seem to fail when I try to restrict certain groups or eat too few calories. Obviously, too many calories is no good either. I have slowly gotten back to natural cycling and it is what my body responds to best. i eat when I am hungry and stop when I am satisfied. I have low calorie days and high calorie days sporadically, depending on what's happening in my life that day.
I have been maintaining my weight for several months now doing it. I now know I need to kick my workouts up a notch to get the last 10 lbs off that have been hanging out:)

I've been doing natural calorie cycling for a few months now, meaning I don't specifically plan each day ahead of time and I eat according to my hunger/activity and what's going on in my life at the time (special occasions, holidays, etc.)

I still do planned cycles on and off, but I also like doing it naturally. Anyone else try this? emoticon
