Rollover?

Can calories rollover from day-to-day? For example, if I should be eating about 1300 calories daily to lose 1.5 lbs per week and one day I eat only 1150, can I eat 1450 the next day?

Thanks!

when i did weight watchers and was successful, I added up my points for the week and ALWAYS did different point amounts each day. For instance, if i was supposed to have 25 points each day, i'd mix it up by having 20 this day, 30 that day, 25 the next day, 18, etc. until I hit my weekly total. I lost weight twice as fast as the people sticking to their daily count. my doc said it's because your body doesn't get used to the same calories each day.

Sounds like the zig-zag method to me...

No -- You'll die! You'll get fat again! The universe will implode!

Of course you can. But shortchanging your day like, especially at an already low level like 1300, can lead to overeating or even bingeing in the days after.

I do this because I like to go out on the weekend. I know I lose weight eating 1700 cal/day so I try to eat 13-1500 most days and then add up for the cumulative difference so I can have a coctail or dessert, etc.
I have been doing this for a few months and my weight loss has stayed consistant.

points are based on calories, so it's the same thing.
