I'm a 19 year-old female, and I started the SBD, Phase I after Christmas and pretty much kept with it for the full two weeks, losing about 10 pounds. I then switched not-so-gradually to eating whole grains and fruit, especially since Ive started really intense cardio work-outs 6 days/week and needed more from my diet. I even do a 40 min. walk in the mornings paired with another workout at night sometimes though I haven't begun weight training because I wanted to get into the habit of just going to the gym. (I've started LOVING the work-out high!! This is the first time in my life where I've started liking to workout).
BUT, the scale hasn't dropped at all, and I'm stuck at 210 for the past 5 days.
I did reach 208 on Monday (my weekly goal), but I don't feel like I'm going to make my 206 goal, and I don't know why. I don't think I'm eating too much, and I'm eating very little junk (my only treats this past week were frozen yogurt and chocolate chips).
Is there a logical explanation behind this? Does working out temporarily halt weight-loss??
