I don't know if this works for everyone but it did/does for me. And this is the place to share all your experiences right? Well, I did a 24 hour cheat and then went back to healthy Atkins eating and it kick started my loss again. I don't know how to expalin it, a jolt to the body's system? I don't know. I did not gain during the 24 hour cheat. Funny thing is the 24 hour cheat made me almost sick! But it worked so I may do it again in another month. Has anyone else done this?
Though I haven't intentionally cheated yet while doing Atkins, I've had days where I would up my carbs to maintenance level and sometimes it would cause me to drop a pound or so. Just be careful on those cheats not to trigger any serious cravings and don't cheat on any sugary foods.
well, i almost made myself sick since it had been a little over a month of eating healthy so i doubt I do it again soon. If i do it in another month - I will eliminate the icecream because it was after that when I didn't feel well.
my work out is pretty hard. I have a weight lifting class 3 days (3 hours) a week and i run or do elliptical 2 to 3 miles the other 3 days and I actually do rest one day which still consists of some form of wimpy excersize, but I am addicted.
There are plans that incorporate a free day...I think Body for Life does that.... It says it resets your hormone levels and keeps you from going off and staying on track... I usually do this but have a CAD type meal which makes me feel so much better.... I really can't explain it but my body does better on higher carbs...
