I really don't understand what I'm doing wrong! I'm taking the homeopathic drops. The first 7 days, I lost 4 lbs, the next 7 days, I lost 3.5, the next 6 days I've only lost 1 lb. I have long stalls between weight loss, like 4 days at the same weight or only losing .5. My husband is on the drops too and he's lost 15 lbs so far. We are eating the same foods but his weight seems to be dropping faster, eventhough he also experienced a stall of about 5-6 days. I even did the apple day one day and lost 2 lbs, just to gain it back the next day. Here is an example of what we are eating:
Coffee with one Stevia
100 grams of chicken breast
One portion of either tomato, spinach or lettuce
An apple, half a grapefruit or 6-9 strawberries
100 grams of fish (tilapia)
One portion of vegetable (same as above)
Fruit (same as above)
We have been seasoning our food with salt, pepper, lemon pepper, lemon and sometimes salsa (w/ no sugar).
I feel like I'm drinking lots of water and we have even been going on nightly walks. It's very discouraging to be following such a strict diet and not see the results that I anticipated. Some things I thought may be responsible for the setbacks are:
1. The first week I experienced a very itchy rash on my arms, stomach and back. I had to put some Cortisone cream to help with the itching. It was either that or stop the drops. I only used the cream for about 3-4 days and haven't used it for at least 7.
2. I have been on my period now for about 5 days. I'm not sure if others experience a stall during this time.
Would it be okay to extend the drops & diet another week to try and get over this hump?
