How much have you lost in your 4 weeks? Its really frustrating when the scale doesn't show.

Cant weigh in on the period thing since mine have never been remotely regular, but I think it's commonfor big changes in your body to cause spotting

I've lost 7 lbs in 4 weeks on Medifast. But the bright side is, now I'm only overweight by 8 lbs, so I'm doing as best I can seeing as how I don't have as much weight to lose to begin with.

If you continue to spot or bleed, carefully monitor your thyroid levels and your estrogen/progesterone balance. In some people low carb can have serious effects on these hormones. This is unlikely a reaction to soy unless you have Hashimoto's

Hey Andi24! I eventually did stop bleeding after 11 or 12 days. I did go off plan this past weekend while on vacation in sort of a major way, but I managed to only put back on 3 lbs. I've jumped back on the bandwagon and just plugging along.

Thanks for checking in!

Hey citygirl, I've been meaning to come back and tell you that month 3 on MF was MUCH better for me period-wise. Still a little longer than normal (6 days instead of the regular 3 days), but VERY light flow - nothing like the nightmare of my first month on MF! I think my system is finally normalizing and getting used to this nutrition plan. I hope things are better for you next month!

I'm glad you made it through your vacation! I'm preparing for one of those myself soon lol. Are you losing more quickly now that your period is over?

WOW ! Good to know. I have been spotting for a few days and wondered what was up ? I am a lifelong dieter and never heard of the whole low carb/estrogen connection. Thanks for the insight, so glad to have found this forum !!!!!
