Gain (vlcd45)

Rate this Entry
Today I had my first big gain... one whole pound. I have been on this diet 45 days and not once have I gained back this much. I have had a few small bounces +0.2 or +0.4, and I have stalled for a while, but never this kind of gain. WHY?
Here are some possible causes:
1) I ate steamed zucchini with tomatoes and beef. Zucchini is not on protocol, but I had it once before without trouble. Beef with tomato causes problems for some people.
2) I ate lettuce and tomatoes with chicken for dinner. Mixing lettuce and tomato is usually not a problem for me, but tomatoes twice in the same day...maybe the culpruit.
3) I ate an extra serving of chicken at 10pm because I felt hungry.
4) My total for the day was around 600 calories.
5) I stayed up much later than usually last night and did not have a restful sleep. I am tired today and have a headache.
6) It could be premenstral bloat. TOM is due in about 5 days. (this also may explain the extra fatigue and hunger)
7) I am on VLCD 45, maybe my body is in rebellion! It is tired and ready for a break.

What has your experience been? What do you think caused the gain?
I am not too concerned and hoping it will drop back off tomorrow, but I like to learn from these occassions.
