    Hi friends, I’m just curious to know what your first week weight loss averages are. Did you work out? Did you weigh everyday? Did you get all your required food eaten? Thanks!!

    Hi Carol – my first week weight lost average was 4lbs. I did and still do workout at least 4 days a week [kettlebell x2/wk, cycling x2/wk then yoga]. I got all my calories intake however when I do kettlebell lifting then I increase my calories by 150.

    Hi Carol – My first week loss was 6 pds. I ate the required amount of servings but found some days I was closer to 900 calories and a few days I went slightly over the 1000. The 7 day average seemed to be what was important. I used to weigh daily but have found that once a week really is sufficient for me. It is a personal choice. I work out 6 days a week – 3 days focusing on cardio and 3 days strength training. I did not experience as big a loss my second week but I think it was because I really increased my water consumption and that first week’s loss had some water weight. Wishing you the best!

    Hi Carol, Welcome to the group. Everyone will be different but my first week, I lost 4 pound but I did not work out. I chose not to weigh daily. I did eat close to 1000 calories everyday as I felt less than that would cause my body to go into starvation mode. I did not get get any exercise going until week 3. I also had some water weight gain in week 2, so I added lemon to my water which seemed to take care of the fluid retention. I can’t stress enough how important it is to drink at least 1/2 your body weight in water or 64 oz.
    best of luck to you.

    Thanks Shirley, The water is the easy part. I have always drank A LOT of water. I’m going to try it with lemon. It will be interesting to see if I retain fluids. I’m actually having a hard time eating all of the calories before I feel over full. Thanks for your input. I appreciate it.

    My first week was 8 lbs. but I’ve somewhat stagnated since then. Mostly because of my own fault, but regardless. I agree on the water, drink lots. I pretty much only drink water as this point, though I admit, I really miss drinking milk. Maybe one day. Good luck!

    I have been on PS1000 for 6 weeks. Have lost 10 pounds. Have followed diet without cheating and am drinking 64 oz of water a day. Walk everyday and do water aerobics. Still have 20 more pounds to loose. Going very slowly. Just ordered more drops.

    I started Sunday night (technically Monday was my first full day). I’m not taking the drops, and I’m not 100% sticking to the regimen (I’m eating Dannon’s Light & Fit greek yogurt as a snack every day since I can’t stand regular greek yogurt, and I’ve added a sprinkle of cheese to foods here and there). Down 4.5 lbs this morning. I haven’t done traditional exercise yet, but I’ve been doing things like some gardening work this week.

    I’m a bit concerned by the speed of the weight loss though, and I’m hoping maybe one of the nutritionists can comment. Almost all other reference sources I’ve seen for healthy and safe weight loss goals recommend a max of 1-2 pounds a week as a safe rate of loss, yet I’m seeing many many people on here report much faster rates. I do see that this plan is more carb restricted than a plan that just counts calories without looking at macronutrient ratios, and I assume that plays a significant role, although my understanding is this is not a ketogenic diet. But what about this plan makes it “safe” to lose weight at such a rapid rate? Not trying to be a pest, just a science nerd who likes to understand the physiologic processes of things. 🙂

    Hi there my name is Paul. I did not do any exercise the first week and I lost 10lbs. The second week I started walking 1 mile, and lost another 11lbs by the end of the week. The third week I walked 3 miles and lost 6.6lbs. I have just increased my walking to 4 miles today. I do feel so much better than I did before I started.

    Question for Paul: Did you stick to the 1000 calories per day? It seems so low for a man. Asking in case my husband starts.

    Thanks, Betsy

    Hi! Lindajg here. I have to say I’m very disappointed with the average weight loss I’ve experienced. I’ve been in Phase 1 for 40 days and have lost only 12 pounds. Based on the advertising, I expected to lose at least 15-20 pounds by now. It took me 3 weeks to figure out what I could and could not eat even from the approved food list. I discovered I couldn’t eat the three meals and two snacks without gaining weight. In addition, I had to closely monitor when I ate and what I ate. I finally figured out I couldn’t eat any beans, avocados, tomatoes, two fruits a day, and the protein shakes without stalling or gaining weight. I am using the recipes listed on this website for the Phase 1 and following the less than 5 oz protein guide, but I’ve had to modify some of the recipes to remove the items I found caused me to gain weight. I’ve had issues with vitamin and iron deficiencies even though I am eating more vegetables and proteins than I had previous to being on the diet. I am eating two eggs per day for breakfast. I finally had to take a strong multivitamin and iron supplement because I was experiencing bruising on my legs and fatigue. I have exercised periodically but because of the fatigue have not been able to regularly exercise. I am on medicine to regulate my thyroid so I know my thyroid isn’t causing the problem. Overall, I wouldn’t recommend this diet to anyone!

    Dear Betsy, I stayed within the 1000 cals per day. At first I thought I could not, but i read about eating slowly. I found that the slower I ate, the fuller I became. Before I knew it, I was not eating a 1000 cals a day, which is a no, no. I write this on Oct 4, 2017 and to date I have lost 72 lbs and I am very active. I have energy I have not had in many years. I am 56 years old and now I walk 4 to 8 1/2 miles a day. I am in the phase two plan, and I am eating around 1500 cals a day.

    Hi Paul,
    Wow, congratulations on your success and keep the good work up!
    I’m just finishing my third week and down 6lbs to date, which has been my easiest loss without starving myself, and I have 19lbs to go. What I have found on this diet and one thing I was searching for was to eliminate my cravings for sugar (candy, cake or cookies). I am preparing my daily menus in advance to keep me on track, measuring my foods and tracking the calories. My favorite recipes so far are the spaghetti squash and chili recipes, but am looking forward to trying more.
    I have found the Forums a good source of information and inspiration, as well as being encouraging.
    Thank you for posting.
    Linda
