Thank you for posting this rannoush30. I'm due to start tomorrow/Sunday and I can feel all the symptoms, and I'm also more hungry now than when I was at day 1 (I'm at day 8). If it gets too bad should I have another unrestricted (4th of the day) or should I just try to ignore it because I know it's due to TOM?

Have the extra unrestricted if it keeps you from cheating.

Don't be disappointed!! Your body is retaining fluid, it happens to all of us!! There will also be times when the scale doesn't move at all, you've been 100% OP, and it's NOT TOM. So remember that it does happen to everyone, keep on keeping on, you will lose. THIS PLAN WORKS. Keep your positive attitude, that is half the battle.

I'm not on IP, but in my own experience I often stall or even gain during TOM even if I am totally on plan. It's fluid retention.

So if I hang on for the TOM week and then an extra couple days I usually see like a 2 lb drop on the scale. But it's kind of a psychological game to remember and BELIEVE that it's not fat gain every month. Especially when I'm hungrier and have more cravings.

Around TOM, I try never to skip or delay a meal. If I do, it makes me eat more.

You seem to be doing great! I wouldn't worry.

I have replaced the bar with an EAS shake which has far more protein that it keeps me going until dinner.

The way I look at those TOM weeks is if there is any loss at all I'm stoked. If its zero that week then I'm happy I didn't gain. Most of those weeks I lost a lot of inches which is weird because i feel bloated.

Also to help with being hungry, you can have a giant salad. I have a huge salad with my lunch to help me last until dinner, then before bed I have my snack. Since I started this a month ago my losses have really picked up!

Don't stress about it, if you are totally O.P. there is no way you are not burning fat.
