Hey All,
I am starting my 2nd week of phase 1 and going strong, BUT i stoped losing after the 5th day. I cant figure it out. Drinking lots of water. The only thing I wonder about is that I am barely eating 15 Net carbs (im supposed to be at 20) Does this maybe have anything to do with it?

Any advice is appreciated!

Thank you Cool

Most probably you're retaining water? How many grams of fat & protein do you get per day? You might have to shake things up abit by either increasing your fat or protein.

I feel like Im eating a lot but looked at my intake and see I am only around 800-1000 cals per day. I also saw that diet soda is a weight staller and I have been drinking that. So im stopping that as well as the sweet 'n' low in my tea.

Day 13 and I stalled out for a couple of days, too. It happens. I'm just taking it one day at a time and if I need to, I'll stay in Induction for another week. No stress! It's B-A-D for you! Wishing you all the best!

You will not lose every day (and as you get into it even every week)

Get your calories up. When they fall below 1200 a day (for a woman), most peoples metabolism will slow significantly. Other than that, fluctuations are normal.

I know it seems weird but sometimes when I stall I take a day where I eat more than what I usually would. Not junk food...still the healthy stuff. I guess sometimes the body needs a boost.
