So upset because everyone on the GAPS Intro has lost weight and I gained!
I know fruit are high in carbs though.
I heard from someone else that in "Good Calories, Bad Calories" he says that some people will gain eating only one apple per day. Maybe I need to completely cut out the fruit. Anyone had expereience with this? Also, I work out about four to five days per week.
I just do not understand why I actually was down 10 pounds more than now when I was only 2 month postpartum and I am now 9 months postpartum and have since GAINED!
have been using CO and ACV in food for years.
DO NOT CUT OUT YOUR FRUIT INTAKE TO LOSE WEIGHT.... Fruit is important for fiber to keep you full longer, as are vegetables, apples are super good for aiding in digestion, also all fruits help prevent cancers.
I gained 70+lbs with my first baby who is 17 months old, lost it all in 3 months, to find out I was preg with my second, gained 35 lbs with him, have lost it all, now I am 6 lbs less than my prepregnancy weight, I have increased my strength, while maintaining muscle, and now I'm in the slow process of all over toning rather than losing anymore weight. If you want to start a new thread I can help you address a few things there, I'm a marathon runner, who has been powerlifting/bodybuilding, doing pilates, and aspiring to do a fitness competition in the next year, also I worked in a fitness and nutrition supplement store for a year. It all comes down to a calorie balance, not cutting one specific thing out of your diet, if you do this unless your body actually requires avoidance out of allergies, your body will be missing out on important things those foods provide and it cannot live long term with out them realisitically, there will be a rebound phase.
JUST wanted to add one more thing, if its not a hormonal thing from you breastfeeding still keeping on the weight, it sounds as though your body has actually hit a plateau and needs a completely different routine, whats your workout looking like? Do you vary them?
