Secrets of Success

Cycle Your Calories




Figure out about how many calories you need to eat per day in order to lose weight then multiply that by 7. For example: 1300 X 7= 9100. Then zig zag the calories from day allowing yourself to eat more some days and less others. Your body won't know you're dieting if you eat 2,000 calories one day and 1,000 the next. Eating the same amount of calories daily causes plateaus, is stressful & boring. Learn to enjoy food and also be responsible to yourself.

  • How about zigzag exercise to use up any extra calories! - by WECHANN
  • I wish I could program Spark People to let me more formally zig zag my calories. emoticon - by JENMAH

  • Thank you SO much for this post.

    My eating differs according to my daily schedule. If Iím extremely busy, I have little time to eat, or am living off accumulated adrenalin and I canít face much food (II any) at meal times.
    Other days I feel constantly hungry or have to go on business lunches so this is a fabulous solution!
