I'm in week 9 and I've been at the same weight for 6 weeks. I lost roughly 11-12 lbs in the first 2 weeks. I'm considering going off plan to fool my body then jumping back on to spark some movement.
I exercise at least 3 days a week- I walk around 30mins.
I eat between 20-25 carbs a day. I drink boat loads of water.
My doc says my thyroid is fine.
After reviewing the checklist:
These are the issues I think ring the closest with me.
12. YOU MAY BE DRINKING TOO MUCH COFFEE OR TEA
I have roughly 1-2 cups of coffee a day. Can this small amount hold me back even with exercise?
19. WHAT ABOUT QUANTITIES?
20. YOU MAY HAVE TO COUNT CALORIES IN ADDITION TO CARBOHYDRATES
I eat 3 main meals a day and at least 2 snacks. celery with peanut butter or a lc chocolate. I know I'm within the 20-25 carb intake range. My meat source is varied between turkey, beef, and chicken.
If I have eggs I usually eat 2, sausage 2-3 (once a day). Cheese varies from none to 3oz.
Veggies are broccoli, peppers, zuccini.
Indulgences I almost always have a cocoa: unsweetened cocoa, splenda and whipping cream.... in fact whipping cream is my big suspect. I bet I have 1/2 of one of those mini containers of it a day.
ideas? suggestions to finding the reason behind my hold on fat.?.
