I know the main aim of this diet is not weight loss but I have weight to lose. I’m 4 weeks into the diet & initially in the first week I lost 12lbs which was great & a real incentive for me to keep going. Since then I have lost only 4lbs which is a good bit less than I was imagining I would lose especially considering I have only been eating veggies & eggs really.
I am wondering if there is something I can do to help? Why am I holding onto the weight? Could it be a build up of toxins in my body?

I can’t remember all the facts about this, but there is something about the body adapting to starvation. Over the first week your insulin response would get more sensitive to carbohydrate intake there for you would use and store (fat) more of the food you eat.
But there is a lot of stuff that plays into this, try to measure out what you eat during a day. And when! for instance, if you skip breakfast, you are very much likely to put on weight.
If you are looking into weight loss you should eat many small meals.
How are your hormonal values? Thinking of thyriod glan and/or others that might be related to weight. Ask your MD.April 30, 2013 at 7:38 pm #103774

Most people lose weight and then gain it back so maybe you’ve lost all that you can. If you eat less food this can cause weight loss. If you improve your digestion this can increase weight loss. If you give your body the proper nutrition it needs, you will eat less (supplement with some vitamins).

I was wondering the same thing. The first time I did this diet I lost about 20 lbs and was the slimmest I’ve been as an adult. This time I have more to lose but it doesn’t seem to be coming off. I do wonder if you have to go through the die off and have your system in better shape before you start to lose the remainder.
