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.

When you push and push for your work outs and maintain your calories, usually at the low end, and the weight loss stalls...what then? Eat more! One or two days a week, not consecutive, go over the calories for the day.
Spark has a group for this sort of thing called Calorie Cycling. It's effective!334
The premise behind calorie cycling is that you never let your body figure out that you're trying to lose weight and keep it from going into starvation mode. Basically, what you want to do with calorie cycling is eat on the high end of your calorie range one day, then on the low end the next.
