Hi all. So I am stuck at 21 lbs, haven't lost a pound in 3 weeks. I need some help. The only whole grain product I have added is a whole grain tortilla for lunch with my burrito. Should I go back to Phase 1 for a while? I really need to get this off quicker! I am also drinking 1 sugary starbucks per day, could that be ht eproblem?
SF Starbucks is great. The sugary one spikes your blood sugar which takes your body out of the optimum state for weightloss when you're following SBD. Once a week....maybe....but every day just isn't setting you up for where you say you want to go.
mind posting a menu or two? try upping your cardio - either intensity or time. try some interval training.
definitely ditch the calorific starbucks drinks. maybe have a sugar free one every day and treat yourself once in awhile to an eggnog latte. 40-minutes is likely not enough exercise to work off an eggnog latte and having one every day is going to start adding up.
Yes, get rid of that drink. It's 300 calories at least probably and you don't know whether it's spiking other cravings, even for healthy food. You can replace it with a SF option but honestly the best thing is probably to cut it off completely and try to lose your taste for it. Other than that your body might be just catching up with your past loss. And if you've only recently (within a month) started the exercise program, your muscles will be retaining water.
Why don't you post some daily menus so you can get feedback on what you are eating. One totally off the wall thought I have is that you may actually have cut your calories TOO much, which makes your body lower your metabolism.
