I've found that if you eat MORE once or twice a week (maybe about 400 calories more) it confuses your metabolism and doesn't let it get into routine. I've experimented with it and it works for me! Prevents me from getting plateaus too!
I am using calorie cycling and really mixing up my workouts to prevent the dreaded plateau. I bounce between high calorie days (2000), medium (1500) and light(1000). I constantly switch up my workouts so my body does not get used to any routines and stops responding. This is easy to do as I have over 40 fitness DVDs. So far so good!
