Does anybody experience a weight stall or even a gain when you get your period?? (Sorry guys)

Scale says I gained 4 lbs, and I just can't believe that.

I have been following Atkins to a T and seem to have "stalled" during this time.

I will admit, that my water intake has been a bit behind, to say the least and I did have a few cocktails on Saturday. But besides that, I don't get it.

Any input???

Thanks in advance!

during those days before and during my days, I kind of stuck but I think is because I tend to retain water.

I gain a few days before and during.Really about 4-5lbs in the week.Then a day or 2 after I usually see a pound or 2 below what I was before I gained any.

Well thank goodness, I am NOT the only one. I guess I will wait and see what happens by the end of the week.

Yeah, me too. Its like my body stops processing anything for a few days and I get all backed up. No fear though, usually there is relief in the "end". Smile
Keep on keeping on!

My record is a six pound gain!!....but never less than 3lbs. If I have too much sodium it sticks around longer. So the week before my TOM I cut out the salt, drink my water and cross my fingers. The day of the scale goes up 2-3 lbs and then a couple days after it starts, it starts to go down again. I have rid my home of all chocolate so I can't turn into a carbivore and devour bad stuff when my will power is lower....it is like being pregnant seriously!

You say just focus on exercise yet claim to eat 1200 calories a day. So move more and eat less? Ground-breaking.

how does this work?
I think that is what most people do. Use the food journal (looks like a plate on the web version) and document everything. And also document workouts. It helps with sticking to the plan and keeping ...

Weird, I keep seeing people say keto takes away their cravings yet so many yo-yo, quit altogether and leave the site, or have a weekly binge. Wonder why.
