    Hi...it depends on what you eat on your load days...but 7 is not unusual, so don't worry. Folks have found that if they eat fewer carbs and more fat and protein, they gain less than if they eat alot of carbs and less fat. But don't worry, most folks take the first 2 or 3 days of VLCD to lose their load weight.

    Hope this helps. )

    ...ps...the reason for the higher gain with carbs is they cause more of a water gain....and it does come back off quickly. Its best not to look back now....just keep on truckin...)

    I gained 4, my son gained 6.5 and DIL gained 3.5, everyone is different.
    Good luck and some days will be easier than others, but don't give up, it a joyful feeling just losing my first 15 lbs.
