For the last few years I've been progressively gaining weight. As the scale moved upward, I cut back on my eating habits. Before joining SP I had cut back to eating only one meal a day - lunch - with no other snacks or bad habits -- and I was still gaining! Now that I'm active in this plan the pounds are coming off and I'm feeling so much better. Part of the secret -- coming out of starvation mode!
Enough said above -- moral to the story is keep eating evenly throughout the day and it's much more effective than simply cutting back on calories. I'm living proof!
