Jury is still out for me.
I started this process last June and have lost about 55 lbs so far, but have definitely hit a plateau.
About 3 weeks ago, based on some things I read off of Tim Ferris and Lyle McDonald's blogs, I decided to incorporate 3 cheat meals in a row (from Thurs PM to Fri PM, sans bkfst).
While it has been kinda fun eating pizza, mexican food w/ chips and tortillas and french fries, the only thing that has happened is a general crappy feeling most of the following weekend. No weight loss in all of the 3 wks. Of course, it may not be the fault of the "cheat meals." I may simply not be doing other things right.
So this week I have moved my work out time to lunch and have been incorporating IF'ing as part of my weekday.
The first 50 pounds came off so easily. These next 50 are fighting for thier little fat lives.
