    I have been on the plan for 9 days now. Lost fourteen pounds the first five days, but have not lost any weight the last four days. Is this normal?



    Hi Kris,

    Congrats on the loss of 14 pounds! That is a great accomplishment so far. It is totally normal to hit small stalls. Just make sure you are drinking plenty of water, and get some apple cider vinegar in your diet! Try a VLCD (in the book) and switch up your routine a little bit!

    Good luck and congrats so far!

    Hi Kris, Welcome to the group. Awesome loss in that first week–Congratulations! I read your post and I had no loss in week 2, but actually gained a pound. I was assured it was temporary. I made sure in week 3 to increase my water intake as well as added some exercise. I am happy to report that I lost what I gained in Week 2 and then some. I think it just takes getting used to the program and variety in foods to get you going. It did me. Congratulations again and good luck on your continued success.

    14 pounds! Congrats, that’s awesome! I’ve heard about using apple cider vinegar, how often do you use it?

    Congrats on your 14lb weight loss! I had a similar experience. I lost 10lbs the first week and then stalled. On a low carb, low calorie diet, sometimes weight loss can stall. I had not been eating the optional grains that we’re allowed daily and was eating only 800 calories/day. I increased my intake to around 1000 and died in the grains and started losing more consistently. However, keep in mind everyone’s body reacts differently. I hope this helps.

    I also lost then stalled. Then lost, then slight gain. Then lost… get the idea. As Samantha said, every body reacts differently and the thing that keeps me moving forward is that I am making healthier eating choices and feeling better physically and emotionally. It is quite a hurdle to overcome the importance of the number on the scale – sometimes I still struggle with it – but the positive changes I have experienced are what keep me motivated to stick with it.
