This higher metabolism also helps us to maintain our weight loss and keep our muscle tissue intact, giving us a firmer and leaner look." That's good news!! Thanks again
I was on a plan called the Hilton Head Metabolism Diet back in the late 80's.
You followed the meal plan about 1000 calories/day 3 meals a day plus a snack, no added salt (of course I cheated that a bit). Light exercise 20 minutes twice a day (I walked or danced).

Two weeks on 1000/calorie a day.
One week you upped the calories daily.
Then repeat.

I lost about 80lbs in 7months weighed myself daily and lost every day..no stalls.

Of course on the up week you lost less but you still lost.

I hated that diet it was hell for me. But the up and down metabolism thing kept me losing.

I just can't remember how many calories more per week I upped it. It wasn't too many more per day, but X7 days it added up.

You know I just got rid of that book about 2 years ago, I never thought I would need to reference that book again.
