    Pick A Splurge Day

    Pick one day a week where you eat without restrictions, then go back to a minimal calorie diet.  It will help you burn more fat and boost your metabolism. Many calorie -restricted diets can actually slow down your metabolism, so having one day a week to bring it back up will help a lot.
