I have not been hitting 500 calories and I'm not sure where to make up the extra or if I should just leave it.

Maybe it's because my kids are constantly bugging me right now but my patients to keep looking is gone. Can someone please help. If I remember correctly, anything goes except sugar and starch. I think R1 I stuck with mainly P2 foods, just more of them the first week and slowly added
I have been in a stall for the past 11 days and was getting really frustrated. I'm talking REALLY frustrated!!! I have "only" lost 15 lbs so far and I'm on VLCD33. I have another 11 lbs to go to goal. I only have a week left to get to goal. By this time in R1 I had lost 23 lbs and had a total loss of 27 for the round.
