I am three days away from Phase 2 (thank God) and have been reading threads about how the weight loss seems to stall at this point for some people. Those of you who have been on Weight Watchers may remember an unofficial plan called the Wendy's Plan (I think). This concept tweaked the official plan so that you had high point days and low point days. This seemed to move people off of plateaus and create steady weight loss.
The Bill Phillips program had a similar logic in that you ate on program for six days then had one day off program. This was so your body didn't adapt to the number of calories you ingested.
What I am wondering is whether this might apply to the SBD as well-in truth any program. I know that most of my loss took place toward the end of my first week on Phase 1, and that it has stayed the same now for almost five days. I know that I struggle to reach 1200 calories on Phase 1 unless I eat A LOT of cheese. I am just wondering if my body has adapted to the number of calories and I need to shake things up a bit when I reach Phase 2. I don't mean going off program, just consciously varying my food intake from day to day.
What do you all think?
