Personally, I do Phase 1 every once in a while for at least a few days to give my body a kick. However, I do notice that if I do too frequently, or for too long a period, the weight loss slows. My body starts to sense that it is being too deprived and goes into a starvation mode...conserving some of the energy for a time of deprivation.
Never be afraid to try something new.
Remember.... Amateurs built the ark,
Professionals built the Titanic.
