I had lots a total of 10lbs. Remember, this number varies depending on the person. I know someone who didn't lose 1lb and we had the same meal plan, but once she got into P2 it was smooth sailing and today she's down 50lbs. Awesomeness!

My two Phase 1 weeks led to a 5 pound loss - it often depends on what weight you are losing - water/fat.

For me, I was heavier than I needed to be from eating too MUCH food this time around, but not necessarily off plan foods, so the loss was great but not in the 8-12 pound range that some people see. Since then it has been a pretty steady 1.5 - 2 pounds a week on Phase 2 (except for the two weeks I took "off" from dieting and maintained).

Also, it is possible, and even common, to regain a bit when you first move to Phase 1.5 or Phase 2 - this is normal and is generally just your body readjusting water weight.

KEEP IT UP! (or, well, down!)

Be well -

I lost 10 pounds last time I did phase 1 (it was like the 3rd time I've ever done phase 1) now I haven't really lost much since.. it's been about two weeks and I'm on phase 1.5. but I'm just getting done with TOM now so we'll see in the next few days.

I lost about 5 pounds in the first two weeks, and then weightloss slowed to 1-1.5 per week.

The first time I did Phase I, I lost a total of 11 lbs., but any time I'd do a repeat of Phase I after that, I'd only lose 2 or 3 lbs. at most. Now I use Phase I just to get back on track and get my cravings under control.

5 pounds, or so? I've lost much more on Phase 2. More importantly, phase one really killed the carb cravings setting me up for success in Phase 2. It's often not always just about the numbers on the scale especially since Phase 1 loss is largely water.

6.6 on phase one, 1-2 lbs a week on phase 2. Really cured by sugar addiction as well.
