I am doing the 800cals for 8 weeks approach.
I have two meals a day – I have breakfast as close to lunch as possible in terms of timing and then dinner early evening. I try to keep eating within an 8 hour window.
In terms of what works best, I would work with your own preferences (timing and food types) as much as possible within the BSD guidelines and any exercise you are doing rathe than replicate others. It also depends if you are diabetic or not.
For example, some people are all about variety – I am finding I prefer to have the same thing for breakfast every day. If you are diabetic you will probably want to avoid all bread, if you aren’t, you may want to include a cheeky slice in your carb allowance.
If you stay under 50g carbs and 800 cals, drop sugar and drink a truckload of water, you arent going to go far wrong :).
