    Isit normal to put on weight after sole sourcing?:cry:

    After i came off in December I was 10.10, but then i put on some weight like between 4-5 pounds and was worried as i excercise a lot and watch what i eat...the inches are still the same...wondering if you could help?

    I've heard that exercise can make you retain water, also remember muscle weigh's more than fat....

    Sorry can't be much more help than that, hope this helps though?....

    The 4-5 lbs could possibly be glycogen.....as you were sole sourcing your glycogen stores would have been depleted, I assume now you are eating carbs?

    Also Fuzzy is right, excercise can make you hold onto a little more water than normal.

    I'd pretty much say it's a combo of glycogen stores being filled up and excercise.

    It isn't fat at all - glycogen is just the bodies easy energy store. Don't panic!!

    It is more difficult 2nd time round (or 112th as it seems for me!!) simply cause the "I'm sooooo fat I have to sort this!!" panic isn't there so much.

    If you go back to SS, that few lbs will come back off but I'd advise doing the maintainance as it's designed to slowly fill up the glycogen stores so you don't get the gain you've experienced.

    have fun!!

    Sole source....for a week??? can't be that much to lose then. I'd just stick with what you are doing and get rid of it the normal way. Sole source is rather extreme for a lb or 2!!

    Plus...you can't do SS when BMI 25 or below. You can start burning muscle. Its not a good idea!! espeically when you are into your running and stuff.
