Weight Gain. What the heck?
 
Has anyone else experienced a gain in fat when they followed the program? I just came back from my 13th weigh in and I gained .6 in fat. I know this isn't a lot. However, it is very disappointing when I followed the program didn't cheat at all and lost nothing but gained. The clinic was no help and I didn't have time to wait on the doctor today. Please help with any suggestions.

I had this happen previously. What was explained to me was that my body had finally adjusted to the program and was recognizing that it was getting little calories. Therefore, it was starting to "hold" onto the fat. They told me to up my protein to the high end of the spectrum and that it should help jump my metabolism back into gear. I increased my protein up 100 more calories, made sure I was eating 3 meals and 2 snack and that seemed to kick start it back into place.
