Ok, one more chapter and this book is done. The previous three chapters dealt with how to move to maintenance using one of two different approaches: a non-calculating method (chapter 12 and 13) and a pain in the ass method where you calculate and measure your food (Chapter 14). As I mentioned previously, both approaches were also valid for dieters were simply taking a 2 week diet break as described back in chapter 10.
That group of individuals, who was simply taking a diet break will be moving back into dieting (where fat/weight loss is the explicit goal) and I want to make a few comments about that. Basically, such folks will diet down for a while, take a break, diet down further, take another break. At some point, obviously, they'll move into maintenance just as described in the previous chapters. I think this approach is better almost without exception (the exception is dieters under a specific time frame) and wish more people would do it.
