Shifting your cals does work. Your metabolism takes a few days after cutting calories to begin to decrease, so then you increase the amount of cals for a couple more days, then keep doing this till you are taking in the maximum amount of calories per day that is suggested for you or you decide. If your metabolism begins to dcrease it wont have time, because you will be upping your calories every few days, and exercising daily keeps it high, and keeps you from losing muscle mass. I have been doing this for about 2 1/2 months now, and when I started, I did 3 days at 600 caloires and then 4 at 900, and I lost 5 lbs for that week, and for 2 1/2 months it has stayed off, and I lost more than just that 5 lbs, the week after I did the 600/900, I did 1200, and lost 3 lbs. I have not gained any of it back, and am still losing. I dont advise that you go as low as I did, but you can shift your calories low and as long as you up them every 3 or 4 days your metabolism will not have time to drop.
OK i WOULD LOVE TO KNOW WHAT YOU ATE (500-600) A DAY THX

Thanks for all of the input from everyone. I am giving it a shot to see if it helps in continuing my weight/fat loss. I will give a report at the end of the week and let everyone know how it comes out.

I'm very interested in the results. Best wishes.


I have been continuing my carb/calorie shifting from the past year and things have really gone well. I have been trying to keep things slow and steady to try and build muscle while still loosing fat. I have lost about 35 lbs and more importantly 20% body fat. I intend on keep this pace as much as possible and maintain my current weight as much as possible and reduce fat to 8%.

This is such a science and statistics thing I just love it. I have made a tone of improvements to my spreadsheet including a 2-Way, 3-Way and No-Carb cycle program. If this gets any more fun I do not know what I will do with myself. happy
