    Good luck! It's gonna seem like a long 3 days, but hopefully it gets your body back in the groove.

    I get a lot of "false hunger" signals too. I started taking some probiotics, which help with some of the physical symptoms - used to have reflux before low carb, and I still obviously tend that way, so it's probably a gut flora issue.

    As for the "phantom hunger", I can't handle a lot of caffeine, so I sip a big lukewarm decaf most of the day. Just switched sweeteners (SweetLeaf: stevia+inulin) this past week cause the Splenda was giving me low-grade cravings. My cravings are definitely gone and my overall hunger has dropped as well, so I think I'm on to something.

    Anyway, looking forward to hearing how you do on this!

    Watch your sodium. That can be a real killer on the scales. You'll get those scales moving again.

    have you tried or do you know your BMR? Google BMR calculator find out what your body burns for your height, weight and age. Then figure out your calories in take in.
    Also figure out your calories you burn by working out.

    BMR+calories burned = ? from that figure minus your calories you took in for the day and you should have at least a deficit of 500 cal. per day in order to lose 1-2 lbs. per week... approximately!! Just check it out and see where you are. It may give you some information you need???
    Best of luck... let me know what happens.. OK?
