    I am doing everything- I have completely cut out cheese and I got on the scales today and I had a gain. What am I doing wrong? Do you think it would be worth trying to incorporate some fruit into my diet to see if that helps? I am really getting desperate now.

    are you drinking enough water? getting some exercise? too much exercise can lead to muscle gain. muscle weighs more than fat.
    maybe your losing inches and its not showing on the scales

    I've two suggestions:
    1. Are you getting enough fibre?
    2. Does your sweetner 'agree' with you.

    If it's any help I've stayed the same for 10 days, but I'm losing inches. It's mad! My clothes are getting looser every day, I can't believe it.
    Have you tried your clothes on? We are both peed off with the scales, but Steve got into clothes today that still had the label on because they were too small.
    I know it doesn't make sense, but try it.

    Good luck xx

    It is very strange, It's odd to lose inches and not pounds, I have looked and can't see anything wrong with what Coco is eating, have we looked at hidden carbs or citrix at all? I can't recall.

    jim the same is happening to me, it has since we last had this conversation really. I lost 1lb since then but thats it. Im not having anything with citrix in it. And hardly any hidden carbs, im even counting cream and cut out cheese with the exception from a little bit every now and then. Could it be that we are not having enough carbs or fat as im rarely hungry so dont eat much.
