For those trying this out, here are some IMPORTANT tips:

1. Keep your sodium within recommended limits!
2. Exercise or do your highest intensity workouts on your high-cal days, rest or do your lowest intensity workouts on your low-cal days
3. Continue to eat healthy - high veggies/fruits, high fiber, lots of water. Don't just pig out on everything in sight on your high cal days.
4. Try to vary your calorie differences by at least 100 calories a day. I.E., 1200, then 1400, then 1300, then 1500, then 1200...you get the idea. (this happens to average out to 1320 cals a day)

There is a thread in the Calorie Cycling Team with more tips, but this just about covers it.

Good Luck!

oooooooooh, now this is something I've never heard of and will definately have to try. I certainly got it off to a great start tonight! We had a family Halloween gettogether, and dang if they didn't bring my favorite treat, caramel apples.

Bad me.

“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

Here's some good news for everyone stuck on a plateau: try calorie cycling!

I've been stuck at 157.8 for 7 long months. And after my first week of doing this I've finally dropped 2.4 lbs! I did 60 mins of cardio 2x this week also, which didn't hurt, but before it wouldn't have made a difference.

What's calorie cycling, you ask? Simple, if you're goal is to eat, say, 1350 cals a day, then instead of doing that every day you stagger your cal intake for the week so that it *averages* 1350 a day. By doing this you trick your body into thinking starvation mode is over, and so you raise your metabolism.

Check out the Calorie Cycling Team thread on TIPS for more info.
