Red face Giving calorie shifting a try...

My weight loss is starting to slow down and I'm getting BORED with my same old meal plan every single day. It's time to shake things up a wee bit. I've always been interested in calorie shifting so I think it's time!

Now... never having done this before... help!

If I understand correctly I take my regular daily intake (1800) and times that by seven for the days of the week. So 12600 calories in a week... then have high/low and medium days in your week.

So I was thinking...

Day 1: 1900
Day 2: 1500
Day 3: 2100
Day 4: 1600
Day 5: 2000
Day 6: 1500
Day 7: 2000

Does that sound about right?

Looks good to me but I've only read a little bit about calorie shifting. I sort of do natural calorie shifting because somedays I'm just not so hungry so I eat less and somedays I eat more.

Yep. You've got the right idea. When calorie shifting, I also plan my high days around special events. I think you're going to see some really great losses in the near future.

I may have to try this sometime. I think that could be good.

I sort of do this unintentionally. I try to have a daily average of 1750 over a week's time, and the last two weeks it seems to work out this way.

I'll let you ladies know how it's going (obviously.)

Today was my 1900 day and tomorrow it's 1500. I think my lower cal days will automatically mean less carbs judging from my menu for tomorrow.

Looks like a more natural way of eating. I'll also be watching to see your progress. I like the idea. May be something I will try in the future.
