    Wow...I'd love to hear more about your intermittent fasting....I have never tried it but think I would like to. Also, banking your extra exercise calories seems like a great way to do things if you need an extra bit of calories for a fun night out....did you jus log those on the side - how did you 'use' those within the system?

    Hi -

    I stick to eating within an eight hour window, so typically 12:30pm-8:30pm. Once I lost 50lbs, I felt comfortable giving myself some leeway on Saturdays. I still don't break my fast until after noon, but I will allow myself an extra hour or two for dessert or a cockatil. I only drink water when I'm fasting. I used to have some black coffee or tea, but it was tough on my stomach and I was getting jittery.

    I log daily, so Monday-Friday there's always a minimum of 300-350 calories leftover. I use those calories on Saturday-Sunday. My diary definitely hits the red every weekend, but I always know what I'm working with so I don't get bothered by it. I will say it's important to be honest on the weekends even when you're allowing yourself extra calories. A few times I wasn't and I either gained or stayed the same.
