I've been on plan 2 for about a month now, and I was struggling like crazy. It would have been enough food on one of my slow days, but on days when I'm up at 5:00 am, working job #1 from 7-3 and then working job #2 from 4-10 or 11 pm, plus 30 mins of cardio at the gym and at least an hour of walking, it just really wasn't enough food to spread out through the day! So I told the girls @ my COD and they decided to experiment with me a bit. On my rare slow days, when I'm only working one job and can sleep in or go to bed at a reasonable time (in other words, days when I'm NOT awake and on my feet for almost 20 hours!), then I'll stick to plan 2; however, on my normal crazy days, I'm going to give plan 3 a try and see how that goes. I know the general rule is that you shouldn't jump from plan to plan, but my schedule is hardly normal, so we'll see how it goes. Wish me luck!
