1.2 overnight.... and, not to provide TMI, but I know I'm stopped up a bit, so.... perhaps it will be more!

I was worried the PureVia is what stalled me so I'm going to avoid it today. I cooked my Hake last night with a little coconut oil (tasted soooo good!), so I wonder if that helped? I've read some say it does and some that say it will stall... so who knows.

Trying to stay focused on measurements more than weight though so if the stall kicks in again I don't become too frustrated.

Down to 247.8 from 271.2!

    Great job on the loss! I can't remember where I read it or what the reasoning is, but I know I have read that PureVia is NOT pure stevia and so it is not on protocol. To be safe, stick to stevia or Sweet & Low (the pink packets!). What's Hake?

    Hake is a white fish. Some call it a "trash" fish, but to me it tastes better than tilapia. I can get it from COSTCO in prepackaged servings of 6 ounces, which is only 135 calories.

    I looked on the package for PureVia and it says it includes dextrose which, I believe, is sugar.

    What about Splenda? I really don't crave sweets that much, so it's not a big deal, but on this diet I have... mostly just because eating the same thing every day (for the most part) is not satisfying! lol

    Good to know about Hake! I love whitefish.

    As for the Splenda, it's kind of a toss-up. It is not included in the original protocol, but then again it wasn't around back then. I know I've read on the forums where some people say it makes them stall in P2. However, I've read other people say they used it throughout and had impressive losses. For me, personally, I didn't use it...stuck with Sweet & Low. I know it's bad for me, but I really dislike the taste of Stevia. However, since I started P3, I've been using Splenda and haven't had any problems. Good luck figuring out the sweeteners!

    Thanks for the info. I'll just avoid sweeteners. I never used them (or even sugar much) before, so why start.
