Ah ha, see it now. Nothing new mind, people have known about 'calorie cycling' for ages, especially helpful when you hit the dreaded plateau, and yes it does give your metabolism a kick start.

I also can't get into the link, but on the biggest loser bob once said they get a cheat meal the day after weigh in to kickstart their metabolism, because their diet is so low cal. So it must work!

Hmm, I never tried anything like that, I found on low carb it had the opposite effect.

Personally after having done a VLCD for a long time - I can say that my biggest losses were usually following the allowance of an 'extra' meal. It didn't happen often, and I wasn't 'cheating' - but allowing myself a night away. ... I found that the plateau would give way to almost like a 're-awakening' of the body?
I would definitely not use this as an excuse for lapsing or cheating though if you are following a vlcd - however, every couple of months or so, a night out (SENSIBLY!) can't be too bad for the system.
