I’ve included my complete Low Carb Diaries for the last 3 days below too, because you should always start by analyzing your food diaries for any changes or additions that might be causing your weight to fluctuate or stall. In addition to certain foods (cheese, cream cheese, any processed foods including bars & shakes, sugar free foods or artificial sweeteners, hidden carbs, etc) there are other potential culprits that could stall weight loss or cause you to gain weight.
Consider anything and everything that has changed in your life since your weight loss stalled.
Below are my low carb meals for the last three days – while sick and recovering from the dental work. I had dental work done late Tuesday afternoon, so I started the day Wednesday with soft foods. This looks gross, and it WAS weird, but I was really hungry and had very little to work with in the house.
I took a can of tuna, stirred in some mayo, heated up the leftover green beans and stirred those in too. Wednesday totaled at 1166 calories, 16 net carbs (23 total carbs), 83 grams of protein, and 81% fat. On Thursday morning I had another GNC low carb shake when I woke up (so I could take Advil), then had scrambled eggs again.
I had a nice hot cup of Chicken Broth later that night, with another piece of the low carb bread, just to settle my stomach before I went to bed.
Thursday totaled at 1851 calories, 25 net carbs (33 total carbs), 126 grams of protein, and 66% fat.
I wasn’t able to finish it all, so I brought home some nice leftovers to enjoy today. I felt really rough last night, so I just had my last Strawberries & Cream GNC shake and an Atkins Bar and went straight to bed. I hope that helps you examine possible culprits when you find your weight loss stalled, or have a mysterious weight gain.
This weight gain is troublesome, but I am NOT going to let it stress me out or derail me in any way.
Also, I’m using total carbs, not net carbs and staying under 20 grams of total carbs a day.
I’ve stuck it out a month or a little longer many times and never lose any after the initial water weight so after a month or so I usually say forget it. I have a question, I am seeing on your MFP logs that it says Net Carb, on mine it only says carbs, so its hard for me to figure my net carbs out. Are you really eating high protein, or with your tracking are you also eating at least 70% of your calories in healthy fats? In one study, recurrent sleep deprivation in men increased their preferences for high-calorie foods and their overall calorie intake.
One explanation might be that sleep duration affects hormones regulating hunger — ghrelin and leptin — and stimulates the appetite. Low Carb Bread You’ll LOVE!Low carb breads & bagels with quality ingredients, GMO FREE, Delicious taste & texture - and they even have Gluten Free bread available! Different B vitamins taken together can help alleviate stress, which weakens the immune system and can be a contributing factor in acne for some people.
Cut out or change just one thing at a time for a solid week, keeping everything else the same. Sleep Quality and Stress are both known culprits for affecting weight loss as well, so getting UNstressed and plenty of rest can make a big difference.
Being stalled or seeing a little weight gain is NOT a good reason to binge or eat unhealthy. I stopped in at Captain D’s (a fast food seafood restaurant) and got Grilled Whitefish with a double order of green beans (no bread, no rice). I also managed to eat an Atkins Peanut Butter Granola Bar (in small bites, on one side lol). Mix it all together and form however you like on a parchment paper lined baking sheet, then bake at 350° until lightly browned. A liquid meal was absolutely necessary several times this week with my jaw pain from having the back tooth removed.
I am traveling next week and still hope to be back to my ideal weight (under 150 pounds), but worst case scenario… I have SPANX.
I have been doing low carb for over 3 weeks now, this is my 4th week and I have only lost 2 lbs. I’m setting my macros at 75% Fat 20% protein and 5% carbs (staying under 20 grams a day).
In another study, women who slept less than six hours a night or more than nine hours were more likely to gain 11 pounds (5 kilograms) compared with women who slept seven hours a night. Another contributing factor might be that lack of sleep leads to fatigue and results in less physical activity.
I am a water hound and have to plan my runs along a route that has water fountains, or carry water which I hate to do.
So runners, watch out for Malitol (and things that end in -tol) on the ingredients list of you suppliments!
Determined to create snacks that didn’t upset her stomach, Cathy made it her mission to offer options in a market saturated with sugar alcohols, fructose, and wheat based bars.
SimplyP rotein products are designed to keep you full for longer, especially if you have special digestive needs. It’s also good when you have an upset tummy, get a cold, or experience leg cramps from dehydration or ketosis. It may be as simple as hormone cycles (yes, even men have those!), it could be water weight from traveling or other sources, or even constipation.
I had my period last week so I didn’t weigh and tried to do low carb, but my chocolate cravings did me in. Sleeping less than five hours — or more than nine hours — a night appears to increase the likelihood of weight gain.
Since their creation, our digestive health bars have been welcomed by doctors who routinely recommend them to patients with these needs in mind. I had dental work done, which was pretty rough (pain, swelling, I swallowed a lot of blood which made me sick – yuck!). Our bars have even been a success with individuals undergoing chemotherapy, as an easily digestible and filling snack. I started a new prescription medication this week too, and also started taking Melatonin to help with sleep. I read the pinned posts and decided to follow this WOE since it was similar but without the costly products. I know it hasn’t been very long but everyone says you lose a lot at first and it gets harder later.
I have maintained within 2 lbs of my pre-TG weight and am able to eat a wider variety of foods. Plus with the addition of all these fats (which you can’t have on Omni) my digestion is so much better and elimination so much easier. I think I need to take off a bit of weight before I start, just to ease the pounding on my knee, and not to stir up any trouble.
Would love to turn my 4-6 mile walks into at least partial runs but am worried about the stress load on my creaky joints. Now if only I could get myself to do the recommended 3x per week, I know I would be seeing more drastic results.
