Do you have any idea why you bottomed out after the initial loss? Did you change anything in what you were doing in SLD? For example, did you reduce the number of flavorless calories you were taking?
Then for the period of re-gain, same question: did anything change?
I think Ι was doing it wrong initially. I was obsessing too much with the
scale and every time I felt I ate too much, I was trying to compensate by
skipping meals or eating small portions. This led to hunger and was pretty
much a conventional diet so I couldn't sustain it long enough and I regained
Finally, what if anything different are you trying now?
Now I take my SW/ELOO after I eat which helps me skip snaking between the
meals. I don't skip meals - I eat three times a day even when Ι don't feel
hungry otherwise I tend to get very hungry without noticing and eat a lot when
I notice that I'm hungry. Also whenever I feel hungry at an unusual time, I
eat with my nose blocked so I don't smell any of the food. This way I get both
some food and some flavourless calories.
I'm still unsure if I have found the correct approach for me - it's been just
a few weeks since the beginning of the down-trend. I'll just wait and see.
