Phase 2 transition concerns
I started phasing myself into phase 2 last Tuesday. The first 3 days I added in one grain (either brown rice or oatmeal) and continued to do fine, lost 1 extra pound between Tuesday and Friday (I was previously down 10 from phase 1). On Friday I added half an apple, and the next day weight was up a bit, ate another half apple on Saturday and on Sunday weight was up to a little over what I started phase 2 on.
I know that fast weight loss is only for phase 1, but is it just a coincidence that I immediately put on a bit of weight after introducing fruit? Should I cut out the fruit? I have measured portions of the grain very carefully, also the fruit (the apple was a bit on the big side so I halved it with DS), I exercise every day, and I have eaten NOTHING off plan. I am even certain that I am not eating too much that is OP. I only have an afternoon snack of a RF cheese stick, and if anything I am eating less than the 75 to 100 "extra" calories.
Today would be the day to add another grain serving according to the book, but I am afraid to do so.
Am I being a moron for worrying so much? Should I just continue to hold at 1 serving of grain for awhile and see what happens? Then maybe after a few days if I at least don't gain any I could try adding a different fruit.
