so different one week to the next

last week I couldn't force myself to eat, had huge energy, worked out everyday went from 199 to 194....this week i'm starving, tired as all get out, can't focus and up to 198 like 194 never even happened and it was all a dream! i'm eating the same things as last week but i'm so hungry it's ridiculous and i'm trying to drink water and crystal light to curb the appetite....omg I wish I knew why this is happening i'm falling asleep at work.....a total 180 degrees from last week

Sorry, mayleesa.

Did you add the Crystal Light? Crystal Light stalls me every time. It's on my Bad list.

Are you still in ketosis?

It could just be TOM. Crazy bodies!

Hang in there, it'll all work out!

If you're hungry, then eat. Seriously, there's no reason to be hungry on low carb. Eat. Keep it clean though, like meat, eggs, or cheese. Have a hard boiled egg or an ounce of cheese. Our bodies do change and what works one week often doesn't work the next. Listen to your body and if it's a true physical hunger, not a mental hunger, then you should eat more.

You may need to eat more if you are hungry.
Your body is going through big changes, I am not surprised that you are tired.
One thing I do is just record my lows and not my bounces back up . . . they can be a bit discouraging, but a new low always seems to come if I am on plan. I was down two pounds today . . . after not having seen any movement for three weeks. I know, I expect, to be up again, but one day before too long I will have a new low to record.

Hi Mayleesa, is there a possibility you might've added some new food to your diet that could potentially stall you?

Hmm. In my experience, sometimes lc foods that I did well on before (e.g. Atkins bars, certain nuts) aren't so harmless later. At this point, I can't tolerate anything remotely sweet without stalling. I wonder if other members have gone through that too -- please chime in.

You may want to quit the bars/Crystal Light for a few days and see where it takes you. LC is a constant self-experiment

You're doing great, though. Don't get disheartened.

Don't get discouraged and give up ! If you are hungry eat legal foods until you feel full. Just be sure to give your mind time to let you know if you are still hungry before you keep eating. Sounds like something has knocked you out of ketosis. I was like that last week but I knew exactly what had knocked me out.

Once you eat fat you'll lose like crazy. Counterintuitive, I know.
