My family (and I) are following the diet strictly.
We're counting our calories
We're Only using Stevia
We're not using commercially-made food products that have hidden ingredients, and we are using oil-free skin products
We're not cheating
We're drinking nearly 1 gallon water daily
So, Why are we gaining?
It's a little disconcerting and baffling.
We all had a decent drop yesterday morning but that has been the first drop in a week! (we're at the end of week 2 of VLCD) This morning was a gain (again).
We're doing injections of 175-200 (Hucog or Ovidac, 5000IU). We feel fine on them, not hungry, etc...
It could be a number of things, for example not gorging enough good cause this to happen. However, you may want to consider cutting out your melba toast/Grissini Breadsticks and maybe even your fruit for a day to see if that helps you to lose.
Let me know how that works. I wish you the best of luck.
