Thumbs up Stalled again?

I, too, had the same experience. I got stuck on a plateau for about a week then started losing again. Then I plateau again. A friend suggested the metabolism is what is stalled. Since you have cut back on food intake there may be periods during the day where your body goes into starvation mode. Trick it by eating small portions during the day (every 3-4 hours) so the body never gets that urge to stop losing. I have found that a tablespoon of peanut butter (all by itself) about 3:30 PM helps me make it to dinner time and eating a lite dinner. If I absolutely have to --- I will have another spoonful around 10:00 PM. It has worked for me and although I am losing at a slower rate, I am losing..... Try your own trick - just watch the carbs.
