Stall Stoppers!

1. DON'T GIVE UP - Your continued search will probably find the problem and correct it.


2. CHECK FOR HIDDEN SOURCES OF SUGAR - Sugar goes under many different names & in many cases does NOT appear on the label. Many vitamin tablets have sugar fillers. CHECK!


3. PERHAPS YOU'RE CHEATING ON THE DIET - If you think it's too small to matter, better check again. (Even one M&M)


4. OR YOU MAY STILL BE KEEPING YOUR FOOD INTAKE TOO LOW - Many times you carry over habits from other diets & eat too little. EAT UP... The right things & don't skip meals.


5. ARE YOU EATING SIX SMALL MEALS OR SNACKS A DAY? - A frequent eating schedule will provide a constant source of energy without the insulin rebound. Six small feedings a day are better than 3 large meals to break the energy/weight loss barrier.


6. YOU MAY NOT HAVE FOUND YOUR PROPER LEVEL YET - Reduce carbos still further, works in 4 out of 5 people, or ADD carbos while still remaining in ketosis. Try it and see.


7. CHECK YOUR MINERAL BALANCE - You may have a mineral imbalance. Such as zinc/copper. Or a trace mineral shortage.


8. YOU MAY BE LOSING TOO MUCH SALT - Salt or potassium shortages are common in the first stages of the diet. Eat salty foods & take potassium supplements.


9. TRY TO EXERCISE MORE - Exercise can improve circulation, stabilize blood sugar & other important metabolic benefits.


10. FOOD ALLERGY--A NEW CONCEPT - May cause all sorts of problems, fatigue, headche, Check possibility in your diet.


11. FOOD ADDITIVES MAY BE YOUR PROBLEM - Over a billion lbs of chemicals added to our food every year. (1977 data) You may be allergic to some of them. Check dyes in soft drinks.


12. YOU MAY BE DRINKING TOO MUCH COFFEE OR TEA - Coffee, cola & tea stimulate release of insulin with a temporary lift in energy followed by hunger, fatigue & slower weight loss.


13. IT MAY BE BECAUSE YOU ARE SMOKING - Some people will not respond to the diet unless smoking is stopped. Smoking uses up vitamin C & stimulates the adrenal gland.


14. HOW MUCH ARE YOU DRINKING? - Alcohol stimulates insulin.


15. IT MAY BE THE MEDICINES YOU ARE TAKING - Many drugs, even aspirin, can cause hypoglycemia. Watch out for hormones, amphetamines, diuretics, antihistamines, antiinflammatory drugs, analgesics, anticoagulants, antidiabetics, antibiotics, tranquilizers, clofibrate, acetaminophen, and propanolol.


16. LAST MONTH'S DIET PILLS MAY BE SLOWING YOU DOWN - Sometimes it isn't what you are taking but what you were taking that slows you down.


17. SEX HORMONES - Will slow down weight loss and stimulate the production of insulin. Estrogen (used in birth control pills) and Testosterone have much the same effect.


18. TOO MUCH SALT MAY BE CAUSING RETENTION OF WATER - After 2 to 3 weeks on the diet, the body partially adapts and excessive salt can cause some water retention.


19. WHAT ABOUT QUANTITIES? - If weight loss stops short of your ideal weight, even though you are producing ketones, you must conclude that the quantities within the diet are too great. The diet usually works best with just enough calories to stave off hunger. Too many people misinterpret the instructions regarding the diet as "Eat unrestrictedly." When they do this they will still lose weight in the beginning, which will reinforce their assurance that no heed whatever need be paid to quantities. In most cases, this practice will lead to a stalemate partway to the desired goal.


20. YOU MAY HAVE TO COUNT CALORIES IN ADDITION TO CARBOHYDRATES - I have never said that calories don't count because I know of course that they do. I say that carbohydrates count more. If your case is especially difficult, you may have to count both. There is no question that a 1,500-calorie, 10-gram diet will take more weight off, and more quickly, than a 2,000-calorie 10-gram diet.


I hope nobody has to get to item 19 or 20 to solve their problem but still, if you have a metabolic resistance to losing weight, you must consider everything except giving up and admitting defeat.


Addendum:
1. Your problem may be a low thyroid.
2. A systemic YEAST infestation may be part of your problem. Read chapter 13 of "Dr Atkins' New Diet Revolution"
3. Your vitamin mix may need something different. Read chapter 22 on Nutritional Supplements.
OMG, Al. .Thank you for posting (or re-posting) . . I so needed that today. .I'm beginning to feel like a failure but this just gave me the booste to move on. Nothing feels as great as putting something (pink) on and feeling skinny, sexy and in control!!! I love it. . (I wore my pink leather jacket to church tonight). . :-) The sermon tonight inspired me. . I'm in, again..

Since I want to get this right I have a silly question..........For those of you who have their stats posted, I assume the first number is your starting weight and the last number is your goal weight but what about the middle number? Mini goal? Weight you are now? (For me that changes daily).

Stalling? Obviously, we will lose weight following Stillman's strict QWL diet, however you can switch over to the Repetition Diets. They decrease hunger and the weight falls off. Stillman says an average of 1 to 2 pounds a day.

Here is a link to a post I typed up eons ago http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/st...ion-diets.html

Thank you for the warm welcomes. I will be joining you all when I return from my vacation. Right now I am doing a 7-day fast, because I got sick and wanted to get rid of it naturally before I left town.

Sharon- Yes, the first # is the starting weight, middle # the current weight, and last # goal weight.

I have never posted mine. My self-esteem in regard to my weight is low, and posting it would just make me feel like crawling in a cave and eating fried food.

Good Morning!!

IM2- I really enjoyed the stall post too! I started going back through the posts when we were just wee little newbies. We were so cute back then, but we have come a long way and its been a pleasure to make it this far with you. So glad you pulled out your hot pink jacket! You rock! (I dont mean hot pink as in florescent, or is it?) Now thats the pic we want of you!!

Hoops- Hopefully you dont have anything planned and you can get lots of rest. I guess I didnt have a problem posting my weight in the beginning beause no one knows what I look like. Now I finally made goal but Im still too embarrased to post a pic...will it ever end.. Sometimes we just need to dive in and do it! You are a beautiful woman. (Jealous we have another tall one here..) Best of luck with the fast.

Sharon- I agree will Nermo. Change your stats everyday they go down it feels sooo good and helps us keep a better eye on you! You amaze me and inspire me. Youre doing great!

Nermo- Keep it up because you have done so so well. Everyday you are that much closer to goal. Awesome job!


I went out to dinner with hubby last night, and ordered the kings cut prime rib. Hubby got his quesadillas and chicken sandwich w/ fries. The waitress tried to switch our orders around. NO WAY LADY- THAT MEAT IS MINE!!!

Ate it all. Went home happy. End of story....

Does anyone know whats better? An "end cut" or a "regular cut" of prime rib? She asked what wanted and I just said regular.....

Al - the "End" end cut is usually more well done but has ALL the spices on it. THe "regular" cut you can get from rare to well but you only get the spices along the edge.

Day 18. I am UP 1/2 pound. I have added stats (thanks for all the responses on the correct way to post). I added 1/2 cup of raw spinach to my diet the last 2 days and although I am still in ketosis my weight loss has slowed ...... is this a result of the veggies???? hmmmm

So for the next couple of days it will be meat only and I will see what happens.

I did have a caffeine-free diet coke yesterday (I used to drink 5-6/day) - YUCK! Way too sweet for me and "artificial" tasting. I will gladly drink my coffee and water (never thought I would choose water over DC)

I am tired (fatigued) and my body is achey. I am still waiting for that energy high that some of you have

I did have a ribeye last night and ate most of the fat - we'll see if eating a bit more fat will help.

Sharon

Aleriaaa- I completely understand the discomfort of posting a picture on here.

I'm so looking forward to joining you all when I return! I should go shopping before I leave town early Tuesday morning and buy my foods, so I won't have an excuse come Monday, April 5. I get back in town about 9:30pm Sunday, April 4. Yep, definitely going shopping tomorrow for my foods.

Naw.. not a fan of "hot" pink. . it's pale pink. .but I do look Hot in it! I should go back and re-read the posts myself. . I need more inspiration or to figure out what the heck I've been doing? Ya know something. .I think I lost most of my weight on Atkins . I think I've been yo-yoing on Stillmas for months. Wow. .I never thought of it before. maybe I do need to eat some veggies. . ((((thoroughly confused, now)))) . .

What's Cooking at My House Today

Bacon Mustard Pork Roast (0 Carbs)

Ingredients
1 (2 pound) boneless pork roast
3/4 cup prepared spicy mustard (I use Dijon)
10 slices bacon

Directions
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Use a knife to cut shallow slits into the surface of the roast. Using 3/4 cup of mustard, brush half over the roast, then completely cover it with 10 strips of bacon; brush bacon with remaining mustard. Cook in preheated oven for 60 minutes until bacon is browned, or until meat thermometer inserted into thickest part of the pork reaches an internal temperature of 150 degrees F (65 degrees C).

Never Give Up

Just by taking the first step we are on our way to a healthier life. Sometimes when the scale doesn't move or moves in the wrong direction we feel like we failed.........I struggle to remember that it is only a TEMPORARY number. I am on my way to a better ME.

BUT, every once in a while I need a reminder that others struggle and OVERCOME their battles as well.

This video was posted on another board - I wanted to share.

Nermo - here is something you can make and share - just make sure someone takes any leftovers This recipe came from another list.

Chocolate "Truffles"

1 8 oz package cream cheese - 8 carbs
1/4 small box sugar free chocolate pudding mix - 4 carbs
1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder - 2 carbs
1 tbsp splenda - 1 carb

Soften cream cheese and mix thoroughly with SF pudding and splenda. Wait 3-5 minutes for it to begin to set and start rolling into small balls. Roll to coat truffles in cocoa powder and put them in the fridge to chill.

Makes 1 dozen with a little over 1 Carb each.

Stick a candle in one and have a great birthday!
