Share with us a typical day of your meals/snacks so that we can see if you went off track somewhere.

The first two days I had a headache and that has gone away so I am assuming my body is doing its thing but it's discouraging to not be down at all yet … even with WW I would have been down by now, and this is WAY more regimented!

Not bloated at all!
Feeling great, a little hungry between breakfast & lunch but that's it!

Try to be patient and give it time. I agree with upping the water. I think I've read that the water flushes out the fat. Is everything "normal" in the, ahem, regularity dept.?

Also, I'm not sure about this, but years ago at a WW meeting someone said that celery is naturally salty, so you may want to cut back on that and add in another veggie. Are you eating any Romaine lettuce? I have my best weeks when I eat Romaine every day.

No issues in the regularity department, haha .. actually no change at all.
Trying to be patient…
And, I just looked through my journal and 4 out of 5 days I drank 80oz of water … the day I listed below was day 2 and I drank 64.

Don't give up!! How were you eating before this plan? Are you exercising more or less? Are your clothes fitting any different? Even when I was green juice fasting I had days where I would not lose and was baffled. I was told so many theories I wont bore you with them! My only thoughts would be to change up your menu - if you are eating beef, try fish, change your vegetables - if one works for one client they tend to give everyone the same advice. I know I can not take in too many bars over a week or I stall. The things I have read and the testimonials I have seen assure me that this is a great program. I believe you will see success!!
