Weight Bouncing Up .


My wife lost 9 pounds in the first 15 days on the V-Diet. Then over the last three days she has gained back 2 pounds. She is following the eating and exercise plan to the letter. It is very discouraging to her. suggestions or explanations?



Scale weight can easily fluctuate 6-10 pounds over the course of a single day. And none of it is body-fat related. As a female, water weight fluctuations, food transit time and weight (i.e. it was time to have a bowel movement) etc. is even more extreme.

Nothing to worry about.

Now, please have her stay off the scale. Weigh once per week if she must and only following the weighing rules in the diet plan. Also, use tape measurements as the diet instructs.
