    That's a distinct possibility. Also the macros tend to go more toward the EMF on UDs and more lean on DDs. Also perhaps eating a large meal stimulates the digestive system to move things along while a low calorie day means the guts can take a day off. Lots of possibilities.

    Paleobird~

    Did you read the Lyle McDonald article I posted?

    Also, given that we women seem to gain & lose water weight at the drop of a hat, I truly wonder why some folks here weigh daily.
    Weekly, maybe, so you can see a trend. Daily weighing would put me in the loony bin, to be honest!

    Nah. The two ladies who tried that experiment both gained a fair amount. One mentioned at least 10 lbs!

    I don't know if I have a pattern...I'll have to track that a bit better. I do know that yesterday was [edited because I put the wrong day: DOWN] day and I lost today.

    I'm one of those daily weighers, lol. It's just another tool for me...hasn't been discouraging yet, and if it did I think I'd probably stop. It helps me stay on track actually. Weird, I know, lol.

    So far I am the saem after my fast as the days after non-fasts. But I drink a LOT more water on fast days, and have big salads to bulk out my 500 calories, so maybe this is keeping the weight stable?

    Glad morning~ it would be nice to eat regular on sat and Sunday keep us posted how that works for you.

    Dd#2 down and was a success , 495 cals,had a banana and then dinner 2 hours later .I really think I like having the bulk of my calories in one meal instead of a spread out. I don't feel crazy hungry before bed like my first dd.

    Personally I'm going to eat all my cals on ud because Its what makes the dd tolerable, 2100 isn't very hard to me to reach at all unfortunately.

    I feel pretty sure that consistently eating high calories is at least partly why I am 100 pounds over weight. I am slowly coming ro a place where i will be doing a liquid diet on Monday Wednesday and Friday doing VLC on Sun. Tues. Thurs. and Sat. will be a loose day, primal, but eat to satisfaction.

    I am considering trying this but had a few concerns, wondering if anyone has been tracking body fat % or muscle mass changes through this approach? Also how did it effect your training?

    Unfortunately not able to track body fat % - I have done 4 fasts, and I must say the energy is low on fast days, I went for a ride and a walk and I am beat. But I have heard it gets better with practice.
