Did your coach give you a Phase 4 specific diary or a sample menu?
Would either of those be helpful to you?
Do you think the 5lbs is the "rebound" (return of water) from phasing off?
Any idea how many calories you think you are eating or just the typical portion sizes of your meats & veggies?
How much fat are you typically eating (looking for enough fat as much as the "when")?
I love a good nutrition mystery.
