I lost over 13 pounds in week 1 and have only lost 2 pounds in week 2. What could explain the significant difference (other than water weight)? I have not eaten anything off plan, but I have almost never gotten in all of the food each day and I am struggling getting enough fluids. Is that my issue or do I need to be looking at something else? I have eaten only steak or chicken every day and have stuck to apples and strawberries as my fruits. My vegetable of choice has been tomatoes (either raw or in a tomato sauce made of crushed tomatoes and tomato paste). One day I did have shrimp. Do I need to mix it up more or do I need to eat all of the food every day?
Yesterday was the first day that I only got to doses of hcg drops in. I forgot to take them to work with me. I did start having the tomato sauce starting at the beginning of the second week, so I'm going to cut that out this next week and see if that is the issue.
I know men lose at a higher rate than women, but a coworker has lost 100 pounds since March on only two rounds of hcg drops.
And I only take measurements at my neck waist and hips and haven't seen a change yet in any of those measurements, is that typical?
