I have not purposely implemented this but am beginning to see the benefits of it. I never chose to do it before because I am afraid of going crazy with food and then not wanting to go back onto my health plan.
The reasons I am considering this are twofold: 1. I got back to healthy eating a few weeks ago and dropped a lot of water weight, etc. in the first two weeks, then I began to stray and didn't do very well for about another week. I pulled myself together and refocused on my goals and have dropped a lot again this past week. The results have surprised me, but I feel it has to do with the week "off" -- not binging or going wild, but not purposely limiting myself either. 2. I have a friend who has been on a pretty strict diet that allows her two days "off" and she has done wonderfully (this plan is not for me because I don't want to live on a "diet", but want to learn to eat more healthfully all the time).
