I'm trying to do one of those alternating diets where you eat a normal amount of calories (say 1400 or so) one day and the next you eat about 500 to 800 calories. So you're restricting calories 2 to 3 days per week. It's supposed to trick your metabolism and keep you from plateauing (sp?). I'm starving all of the time. Normal calorie days and restricted days. I survived the first week and dropped 6 pounds. I don't expect to do more than 2 from here on out but I'm having problems. What do you do to alleviate hunger when dieting?!!!
