Another strategy: if you don't have very much to lose, don't change anything about your eating, nothing. The mere introduction of regular may be the only stimulus you require to lose the little bit of fat you'd like to lose.
Here's the rub: don't change anything about your diet meaning, in this context, not one more fork-full of food than you're presently eating. And no reward eating. Just go ahead and pretend that you haven't earned the right.
