Strategies for Your Off Day on the Day-Off Diet
The Day-Off Diet is designed with a day off to help you lose weight without feeling deprived. But, a day off from the diet doesn’t mean you should devour all of the foods you’ve been craving. It’s a day to eat just enough of what you want to feel satisfied. Make the most of your off day with these five strategies that will keep you on track to reach your weight loss goals. Get more information on the Day-Off Diet here and take the Day-Off Diet Assessment to see which social support group is right for you.
Plan Your Days Off Around Special Events
Before you begin planning your Day-Off Diet schedule, make sure your calendar has all of the special occasions, social events, and birthdays for that month marked down. (Download the plan to print your calendar out.) This will help you strategically select your off days so you don’t find yourself feeling deprived at special events.
Indulge, Just Not Too Much
On your day off, indulge on some of the foods you’ve given up for the diet, but don’t go overboard. Indulging just a little will help you feel better psychologically and will also help stimulate your thyroid gland to work the way you need it to work because you’ll be telling it that once in a while it’s okay to indulge.

Appreciate the Food
Take small, slow bites of the food in which you’re indulging so that you can appreciate the tastes and feel satisfied more quickly. If you eat too quickly you could potentially overeat.
Visit Your Facebook Group
Take some time on your off day to log on to the Facebook group and see what questions other people are asking. You may pick up a few strategies to try when you get back on the diet the next day. Plus, you’ll be able to communicate and sympathize with others who know exactly what you’re going through.
