are you exercising? usually the first couple of days on the reduced carb diets the weight lost is water weight, but if you've added exercise to your routine, you may be gaining muscle, which weighs more than fat.
I would say that if you've only been on for 3 days, you should stick it out for at least a week and see how it goes. Unless you are gaining ALOT of extra weight (like a couple of pounds a day)

If you're eating a lot of salt you might be holding water, and DEFINITELY journal, journal, journal! No mattter WHAT diet! It's so important!

To know wether any diet is working you have to give it time. Daily fluctuations are MEANINGLESS. As others have said, it could be water gain, but you don't measure your success of something this life-changing overnight. Your body has to adjust. Wait at least a week to weigh in again. Compare your weekly weight losses not daily weight losses. You should continue for at least a month before deciding that it doesn't work. Give it a chance. Wink

Love the food that loves you back.

Take it one day at a time!

three days is not enough to say that a diet doesn't work. Salt, fat, etc. make a difference day in day out on the weight fluctuation..

If you want a caffeinated beverage to help boost memory drink green tea, or you can take Ginkgo biloba supplements.
