At Lowcal 's suggestion I thought I might post my question here.
I seem to have hit another plateau - I hit one that lasted 9 weeks earlier this year then I lost 3-5lbs (depending on fluctuations) on the Reboot challenge. Most of that was due to eating less than 1400 calories per day in the first week, which is unsustainable as I also exercise 3-5 hours (cycling, gym sessions) during the week and spend up to 12 hours walking around at the weekend. (I normally average 1700 calories per day - at 1400 calories I struggle to fuel my exercise properly.)
So I'm wondering: is it worth eating slightly more for the next few weeks to see if it will kick start something? So even if I gain up to half a stone in the short term, I'll lose that and more when I go back on the diet again. Has anyone tried this method and has it worked??
It's nearly a year since I started my diet proper but it would be nice to get rid of that last half a stone and finally be in the "normal" BMI range
