QUOTE “Tip 2: Eat Lunch or Dinner (but Not Breakfast). All the participants in my studies on the Every-Other-Day Diet have eaten lunch as their Diet Day meal.” [1]

However, it’s quite likely that the success of EOD dieting isn’t tied to eating lunch. It’s tied to a modified fast on Diet Day and unlimited eating on Feast Day. So if you prefer to eat dinner on Diet Day—enjoying dinnertime with your spouse, family, or friends—go right ahead. But I do strongly advise against eating breakfast as your main meal on Diet Day, because you may find yourself so hungry by dinnertime that you won’t be able to limit yourself to 500 calories for the day. [2]

QUOTE “Tip 4: Make a Plan for the Day—and Stick with It
What’s the biggest mistake my study participants made on Diet Day? Not knowing exactly what they were going to eat when mealtime rolled around. Because if you’re hungry, you’re likely to eat more than 500 calories. There’s an easy way to avoid that mistake: choose your lunch or dinner (and snack) for Diet Day the night before and rest easy that you’ll have a very successful Diet Day tomorrow.” [3]
QUOTE “Paul decided to go on the two-day-per-week pattern of dieting used by Michael Mosley, the program’s host: a 500-calorie modified fast on any two days of the week, with unrestricted eating the other five days. But the diet didn’t work. “I couldn’t get a grip on my eating by fasting just two days a week,” Paul told us. “I overate so much on the days I wasn’t fasting that I didn’t lose any weight.” [4]
NOTE – What does it say?
My takeaway: The alternating 2 days is a key element to staying on the process.

What gets your attention?
What human needs or problems are addressed?
What questions do you have?
What solution or hope does it offer?

What does it say that we need to obey?
What would a camera see if this happened?
Who needs to hear this?
What are the actual steps that I would take?
