Yesterday seems to have fixed the "misbehavior" of the day before. I had 1400-1450 calories instead of 1100, and i almost slept the clock around: all caught up! The scale is down again. Oh, i did have a bit more carbohydrate, as my supper was a glass of home-made raw-milk kefir. I also had two glasses of champagne* with my steak and butter for dinner.
I'm almost coming to the conclusion that the alternate-day fasters have a good idea. Not that i would go the length of eating ANYTHING i wanted on the feast day, but just loosening the reins a little seems reasonable and effective. Remember when i said that "shaking things up" seems to help break a plateau? It kinda looks like the ADF'ing might be doing this in an ongoing fashion -- you never HAVE a plateau because you're constantly breaking up the tendency.
* i know, i know -- you shouldn't call it champagne unless it's FROM Champagne, and this is from Limoux.... :-P
