It’s called the “Sandwich Technique” and it is an original idea (at least to my knowledge). What you do is this: First, you calculate the ITP, or the Indulgence Time Period. Meaning, how many days you will be indulging for. If it’s a wedding, that might mean just one day. If it’s a weekend away, well, that’s two. If you’re going on vacation for a week that will probably be… about a week! Simple so far.
Next, you CCC, meaning you Consciously Cut Calories for as many days as the calculated Indulgence Time Period. Combine that with EEE, or Emphatic Extra Exercise. Then go and have a good time!
When it’s all over, and I mean IMMEDIATELY when it’s all over, you simply repeat the process. You do the CCC plus the EEE for as many days afterwards, as you have spent indulging. So, in essence, you sandwich the indulgence time period between two equally long CCC/EEE periods, meaning consciously cutting calories while doing emphatic extra exercise. Hence, the “Sandwich Technique!” It works like a charm, it will cause you no harm, and will keep you off the Fat Farm!
