The New Way to Lose Weight

Imagine eating whatever you want five days a week, and then picking two days to cut back on carbs and calories? Health experts say there might be something to this new way to lose weight...


According to British researchers, women who cut out carbs two days a week and ate normally for the remaining fives days of the week, lost almost double the weight of women who cut back to a daily 1,500 calories per day. 

While researchers say the reason for the two-day diet's success is unclear, they believe it may have something to do with the power of choice. In other words, the more freedom you have (five days of eating without strict calorie restrictions vs. every day of keeping to a 1,500-calorie limit), may lead to more weight loss success and less oops-eating. 

Though I tend to be skeptical of low-carb diets, I'm fascinated with the concept of this "two-day-a-week" diet. Would you try it?
