Anyone have success regularly banking calories for the weekends?
My biggest struggle has always been overeating on the weekends. I do awesome 4 days a week and then blow it 3 days-- which causes me to be in maintenance.
I have a reasonable calorie goal-- 1800 per day. I weigh and measure everything. I'm not overly restrictive, but the weekends just kill me. I want to be more disciplined, but it just isn't happening.
So my thought is, if I can't beat it, why not join it? What if I cut my calories to 1500 per day for 5 days a week, banking 300 per day would give me 1500 extra for the weekend? That way I could eat 2550 calories on Saturday and Sunday and still lose.
Has that worked for people?
