Hmm, interesting Karen! I'm actually doing some unintentional zigzagging already, some days I'm as low as 900 calories, some days I'm as high as 1700. The super low days only happened a couple of times, and same with the high, most days I'm right around 1100-1300.
My husband has been dieting with me, which is awesome - he's doing a modified South Beach plan (modified because he's too cool to read the book LOL) but allows himself one meal a week to eat whatever he wants - pasta, fries, bread, etc. He's lost 26 lbs since we started at the end of March, whereas I've lost 9. I don't know if I could do the weekly cheat thing because I think it might be too difficult for me to keep it to just one meal - and also, now that my cravings are gone, I don't want to eat that stuff anymore. But maybe I need to intentionally have a high calorie day or two a week. Hmmmm...
