I was reading some infor about the cheat to lose diet and it explains that after about a week your body starts doing things to resist the dieting so it has a diet plan that looks like this:
Mon & Tues-Low carb (protein, fat, green veggies only)
Wed & Thurs- Mod carb (add in veggies)
Fri & Sat- High carb (veggies, fruit, pasta)
Sun- free for all
That way your body doesn't adapt to the weight loss and start to resist. I actually will probably order the book, just for the 75 berardi recipes in it.
