nawchem (hi! you had advised me well on a recent thread of mine where i was struggling with dehydration, and...
i've added sea salt to my meals - and i doNT think that has made me retain EXCESS water, as i was previously losing too much ...now i seem OKAY, but...) -
since before adding the sea salt, i have been having trouble losing weight -
(cross posted as a /reply/ to another thread ...hoping someone can advise me, here...)
...i don't know if i'm allowed to call it a "stall," but... i can get down a /little/ (like, .5lb or 1lb), BUT it comes right back, so i can't get past the /same number/,
and this has been going on for several weeks, or maybe even a month or longer,
and, as i'm female, regarding water weight... my "time of the month" is about 2 weeks away... (and when that comes, that will make things even more difficult...)
i try different things, from, atkins meals, to eating nothing but tuna, or nothing but bacon, (kind of crazy, but i don't know what else to do!)
i am trying to work my way down to doing an egg fast (just eggs, limited cheese, butter), but last time i did that, i didn't even lose...
yesterday i ate just:
w/ "clean" sausage, all recognizable ingredients/just spices),
few tablespoons of shredded cheese,
and a few tablespoons coconut oil -
i repeated JUST THESE COMPONENTS, for each of 3 meals...
today i gained .5 or 1lb...
i don't know if i'm eating too many carbs, i don't know if the cheese or some ingredient in the sausage could be the culprit -
...but i really feel like i need the cheese, OR sausage (at least one or the other), or SOME other component to add to the eggs,
because eating just plain eggs w/ a touch of cheese & butter can be really depressing!
i have been on plan for about 2.5 months... i recently read about post induction stall syndrome, and ...waiting for whooshes, but i don't know if, i am _doing the wrong thing with what i'm eating_
i am getting so discouraged, i'm considering eating something normal - not even going crazy, just one normal meal - to try to "shake things up" for my body??
or - i was considering a cheat day for _valentine's day_ which is a month away, and maybe i should hang in there and see if i still can't lose anything by then? but that feels like a long time, if i don't lose...
