    Thanks!

    Thanks, Grammy! Just finishing my 1st long round and I've had 3 stalls. They are for real! Also your advice on the apple day is spot on! It didn't do a thing for me!
    Stalls are natural and necessary! The inches and the way your clothes fit are the best barometer for measuring our success!

    Out of 44 days, I've had 17 stalls!

    Question--three days ago, I hit a new low that I haven't seen in decades. The next day, I gained .6 lbs. Today, I'm stalled with the same weight. Why do you think that is? I've been drinking water, no longer have TOM, no cheats, etc. Only thing I can think of is no BM but I notice on P2 I can go 3-4 days without one.

    Thank you for the lesson on stalls. I am sure I will need one more round after this.

    Yeap stalls are normal, every one goes through them apple days or steak days are for psychological reasons in the mean time inches are being lost, this diet is a godsend.

    Yes, they are normal and they break...this round I had a 6 day stall...gained 1.5, cycled up and down each day but finish the stall with -.1 loss for the week.

    VLCD37 and -1 lb this morning = -1.8 down in 2 days! I'll take it.
    Payback for being patient with that stall. Love this diet!

    I have a question about stalls.

    How, when only eating 500 cals a day (and our body needs 2k-3k cals to maintain), can we actually sit at a certain weight for a number of days. Is the body actually going into a mini starvation mode to hang on to the weight or something?

    Steveo, I have often pondered the same questions...it seems so strange. Seems like with so few calories, the weight would be flying off every day with no stalls.

    In the original Pounds and Inches, Simeons states that the explanation given for stalls goes like this:

    - Fat weighs less than water. (this is true -- water weighs 8 pounds per gallon)
    - While the body breaks down fat from cells, some cellular structure is still left behind and as the fat goes, water comes in to fill the space.
    - Before the cellular structure is broken down and reprocessed by the body, it has water hanging around in it.

    IE: the space that was once filled by fat (lighter) is now filled by water (heavier) and THAT is why we sometimes see stalls but loose inches.

    Dr. S says that this is a simplified explanation for a complicated process, but if you think about it, it does make sense. Water is heavy stuff, and I'm sure all the ladies out there can attest to feeling that weight gain around TOM. It's water!

    That makes sense and is logical... still it is aggravating!

    I am on R2,P2, day 13, and I don't understand going into a stall so early this is day 9. I know we have them, I had a 7 day stall on R1 in my second week also. I gained 5 lbs loading, and in my first week of R2 VLCD lost 7 lbs (5 load plus 2), then nothing, no more. Looking back, I am eating more chili this time instead of grilled beef and lettuce. My other meal is always baked chicken and cabbage. Do you think the chili is doing it? I used 96/4 beef, fire roasted diced tomatoes, seasoning (no sugar) and figured my servings at 1 cup. I had this last round and no problems. I have come to LOVE it, so have eaten much more of it this round than last. Could the tomatoes be doing it for some reason this time? I made up my mind yesterday that I know there are stalls, and I need to just hang on and keep doing what I'm doing, it worked before. I had a horrible problem with hunger last week - Beth suggested changing my dose from 4 pellets to 5, and thank you, Beth, it DID help. Thanks for any help.
