Hi, I've been with NC for about a month with great results of 2lb per week loss. However, after 2 take-aways in as many weeks, I lost those 2 weeks progress. So in order to get back on track I ate porridge oats with water for breakfast, then lunch and dinner were salads with a low fat side and then lots of lovely fruit for dessert. I eat a small meal every 3 to 4 hours, but by 4pm (3rd meal of the day) after porridge oats and two meals of salads, I've only eaten roughly 700 cals. So I don't get under 1200 (for fear of going into starvation mode) I eat a lot of fruit and a few low fat snacks. This was fab for 3 days, losing a whopping 0.75 of a lb a day, but by day 4 I put on 1lb over night!?!? How come? Is it because I'm eating so much fruit late in the day that the sugar is not used and is turned into fat? Please could someone shed some light on this mystery? Thanks.
