Rabbit - I am not quite understanding the loss myself. They say that when you are on a low carb diet for a while and then eat some carbs, it 'shocks' your system and will start to loose. Many use this to break stalls. I am more inclined to think that one week off of my exercise program allowed my muscles to rest and heal which may have caused the loss. The hard part is jumping back on the wagon. I feel myself craving things I have been ok without for 5 months. It will pass :yikes:
