Hello all. Been doing phase 3 and went into maintainence Saturday. Big Ocktoberfest event where I indulged in beer, cocktails, and food although nothing completely out of control. Anyhow, Saturday morning was weighing in at 132. I have vacilated at 130-132 while doing Phase 3 depending on salt intake, water, etc, etc, etc. Sunday I was exhausted from the night before and had a phase 3 bfast and Pho, which is seriously high in sodium for dinner. Got on the scale Monday and jumped to 135. Today I am doing a Phase 1 day to purge water weight and to reset if you will.
My question is:
1. After you all started phase 3 and went into maintainence, did any of you gain a few lbs that are often talked about when people get into maintainence? When I did IP before, I think I lost another 2lbs in phase 3.
2. While I know its not possible to gain 3lbs in two days, maybe it is, but I definitely did not eat almost 10 cals, do any of you find yourself jumping around like that on cheat days? Can we really move up and down that easily with a few meals/cocktails?
No worries here as I am bad to phase 1 today and listening to what my body needs to get back down to 130-132 but would love any IPeep insight.
