Here is where I am as of this morning:
Weight: 142.5 (Beginning Weight 142.2) = gain of +0.3lbs
Last Week – 130C/130P/120F
This Week – Same
So…you’ve gotta love going into a deficit for the week and GAINING weight. My weight actually got as high as 143.4lbs this week.
I have been battling a candida overgrowth for the past few months and have been cycling treatments. This past Monday I began using grapefruit seed extract and have been experiencing intestinal issues as a result. I am guessing this is the blame for the weight gain. You should’ve heard my stomach last night. It was so loud my husband could hear all the gurgling and wars going on in there!
I was also REALLY hungry last week. Again, I am guessing that is a result of the candida not wanting to give up. I know that I am not even close to starving on a 2000+ calorie per day day, so I know logically that it must be the candida as well as my body adjusting to all of the changes.
As for my macros, I did allow myself a refeed on Friday (I hadn’t planned on one) because I was really hungry and it felt like my body needed it. I woke-up the next morning 0.6lbs less which reinforced the fact that having the refeed was the right call. This week my plan is to keep the same macros and see what happens. I actually “feel” leaner despite the weight gain and don’t want to reduce macros at this point.
