Did you start working out too? If you started or significantly increased a workout routine, adding a little water weight is perfectly normal.

Give the plan 8 weeks and then see how you're doing. 1.5 is not early enough to know if it's working for you yet or not.

whenever you start a new program, a new lifestyle change, it will take time for your body to adjust. a normal persons weight can fluctuate around 5 lbs. sometimes ( a lot of times) it's water retention. as everyone on here will tell you. don't worry about the scale. go by how your clothes fit. sure it's not an immediate gratification but it's a truer test to see if it's working

I have been following the nutrition plan (measuring everything I eat) and have actually gained weight (2 lbs in 1.5 weeks)! What am I doing wrong? Help. Getting very frustrated.
