cckcsharp Posted August 16, 2008 Report Share Posted August 16, 2008 Hey I caught this in the small print of the link yorkiemommy posted for the calorie counter(the second link she posted on the calorie calculator thread) It says that if you actually vary the amount of calories you have each day into a 7 day cycle it will trick your body and help prevent plateaus. The basic concept goes like this. Instead of eating say 1200 calories per day for a total of 8400 calories in the week, you do it like this. Eat 1000 calories the first day, than the next day eat 1400. At the end of the week you have consumed the same amount of calories, but by rotating you are tricking your body. Follow the second link that yorkie mommy posted. Once you input your info, click on the 7 day cycle zigzag and it will give you the guidelines that are appropriate for you. (please note that mine was just an example to explain how it works.) I just wanted to share this, because so many of us post about being stuck in the weight loss department and not being able to get those stickin pounds off. I had never heard of this and thought it was certainly worth a try. Zig zagging your calories each day just might do the trick to help those pounds come off a little better. Just thought I would share and hope it helps at least someone. Jessica Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
