Interesting Diet Theory

Standard weight loss diet advice calls for a fairly identical eating plan each day. I haven't been doing it and keep wondering about the pros and cons. I eat very little starch/carbohydrates, except Shabbat. It's the only time of the week, I have bread. And I usually have some "starchy vegetable," too, like sweet potatoes, pumpkin etc. Actually, Shabbat is an entirely different meal schedule and menu.

I was surprised to find that some diet experts even recommend variation for losing weight, claiming that it keeps the metabolism going more quickly. Routine is more fattening.

I haven't seen this on Start Fresh, but they don't object to it. I have a lot of freedom in my meal planning.
