When you wanted me to re-evaluate what I was eating, I found that the first week I ate nothing but eggs and lost 7 lbs but when I ate chicken the second and third weeks nothing much happened. Also I noticed that my husband has been marinating the chicken with Tandoori masala and there are carbs in the ingredients. Could this be a problem? I have never tried anything else other than eggs and chicken as I don't like meat much. May be I should try doing the eggs this whole week.
Are you eating 2 cups of cucumbers at a time? And are you getting your oil in? The oil is really important, you need the healthy fats to keep your body going and some people find cutting out all the fat actually slows down the weight loss.

And yes, the masala may be a problem if it has carbs in it. Anything that's not on the P1 sheet should be 0 carbs/0 fat/0 sugar. That includes condiments, marinades, etc.

Finally, I don't put much faith in those scales. They measure everything that is not fat as lean body mass and that includes skin, organs, blood, water, etc., etc. So take that reading with a grain of salt.

I don't like lot of vegetables so I am trying to roast them and experimenting. While i do that I am taking 2 cups cucumbers for lunch and 2 cups cucumbers for dinner.

I take oil with my eggs but with chicken wings I didn't take any oil as I grill them.

I will cut down the masalas and probably go back to eating eggs this week.
And as I am typing this I have to go visit a friend this evening and probably end up eating chicken salad. I am praying that they don't give me carb marinated chicken.

Keep at it for another two weeks. Your body will release some of it for sure. I am concerned as I'm now under the 20 lb mark that my loss will dwindle or stall. 20 lbs is a lot on my petite frame, and I'm still on the upper edge of an overweight BMI.

My second week had a 0.7 loss, but I did loose inches. Today was a 2 lb loss.

Please send an update after your next WI!

I'm feeling the same way. But I have been working out for 3 months with diet and exercise 5/6 days a week and have only lost 10lbs. I do weight train could that be why my scale isn't moving so fast? I would love some advise

Hang in there, it will come off!
This is just what I was thinking...vary your protein sources! You are sticking to very lean proteins. Give some steak a shot every now and then! I hope that will help.

P.S.- Your losses are right on average so far! Way to go!

The daily required oil shouldn't be used for cooking. You need to have it in its raw state to get the benefits.

Are you adding an extra packet or protein after your workouts?
