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.
"Anyone who tries to describe the ineffable Light in language is truly a liar - not because he hates the truth, but because of the inadequacy of his description." - St Gregory of Nyssa, 4th c.
A healthy body is a guest-chamber for the soul; a sick body is a prison.
- Francis Bacon
