On-Off Diet Exposed
The sad truth about the On-Off Diet
Variations of this are the frequency diet, the push-pull diet, the cycle diet, the interval diet, and the add and subtract diet.
This diet requires you to alternate between starving and gorging. The theory is while you are starving you will burn fat. Then, when you gorge, you overload your body so much it will burn fat because you have cranked up your metabolism.
The theory is that you can fool the body, by starving it just long enough so it doesn't go into starvation mode, and then overfeed it enough that it will go into high fuel burning mode without taking in too many calories.
This kind of diet sounds rough. I haven't tried it, because it would be very hard to pull off and it's surely not sustainable. Bill Phillips has reported some success with a variation, but Bill Phillips also counted his calories very carefully. I also notice you don't hear Bill talk about this diet anymore--must be a reason why.
I guess if you are looking for an excuse to pig out while fooling yourself that you are actually doing a good thing, this diet is worth trying. At least, until you get tired of the sugar swings and the need to buy larger pants.
