Default Stay on Phase 1 longer?

Has anyone stayed on phase 1 longer than 2 weeks? It seems the last few days the scale is going up rather than down and I haven't cheat once. I feel great but jist curious if staying on phase 1 longer is advised. Thanks!!

the one time I did, I fell off the diet completely. as long as you are detoxed, you should move into 1.5 IMHO.

if you do a search of the threads you will find a wealth of information on it but it's limiting fruit and grain servings for a few weeks to test what works best with your body and what your weight will react to versus going full force into Ph2 and chancing that you might gain a few pounds before you find your comfort level.

Sounds like a plan.. I'll take a look. DF wants to stay on Phase 1 cause he keeps losing and I'm like no way dude, I need some fruit! lol...

explain to him the purpose of Ph1 isn't continued loss (that will eventually stop too) it's to detox. Ph1.5/2 is for continued loss!

The research I did said that if you have a significant amount to lose, 100lbs or more, that you can stay on it for up to four weeks, which I plan on doing.
