I had skipped my cheat days 2 weeks in a row. So I did two in a row, first went to McDonald's and got two fish sandwiches and fries, then next day Subway 12 in. cold cut trio. I also drank beer both days. I put on 5 lbs then went back on my diet. Lost the 5 lbs. plus 4 more so I guess I'm back on track. I just have to remember to do my cheat days. It's hard though since I don't really want anything . I'm so used to letting my cravings tell me what to eat, when you take away the food that causes the cravings you just aren't hungry.

I think that eating so little has a negative effect on your metabolism and could be effecting your results

No I don't count them. I estimate though that I get between 500-700 a day. If I eat more I gain. I have tried those 1200 calorie a day diets, they make me fatter. I have never had any other diet work like this one. I'm never hungry. I even fasted for three days in a row last month and didn't have a problem. Maybe I need to do that again.

Do you count your calories - it sounds like you may not be getting enough.

I've been on a diet since the middle of January and so far lost 32 lbs. I need to lose at least 20 more but my diet has stalled and I haven lost a single pound for two weeks now. I'm hoping for some inspiration and new ideas. I lost about 15 lbs in the first month and about 2 lbs a week after that so this plateau is not fun at all. I exercise every day and since the weather got warm I've added walking. I really can't cut any more calories since all I eat is 2 eggs for breakfast, 1/2 c. beans 1 oz meat, usually boneless skinless chicken breast and 1/2 cup spinach for lunch and the same for dinner. Sometimes I change from spinach to broccoli. I also drink 8-10 glasses of water a day. This diet is supposed to have a cheat day once a week, where you eat anything you like and I did but I stopped those in hopes I would lose weight faster. This is the only diet I've ever been on where I actually lost weight. Even when I joined a gym and went every day I actually gained weight. I'm hoping to lose the rest of the weight I need to lose by June so even if I slow down it shouldn't be a problem as long as I lose something.
So that's where I've been, where I'm at and where I hope to go :)
