Stalled Weight Loss?

September 20, 2010……Stalled Weight Loss????

I just got another email from someone saying their weight loss is “stalling” after having lost 44# fat tissue in the past few months. Just a reminder to all MM followers: At the end of every 8 weeks you must note your “current” weight, look up your expected fat loss for the upcoming 8 weeks on the following table, and recheck to see if after the 8th week your loss falls within the target expected loss. You are not going to lose at the same rate you did when you had 44 extra pounds of fat to lose. ( a 44# fat loss is the equivalent of losing 88 pounds on a traditional diet)

.
For example….if a 5’4″ woman starts the program weighing 220#….she can expect to lose 14-21# the first 8 weeks (say she loses 16#). She now weighs 204#. She can expect to lose about 14# the next 8 weeks. She now weighs 190#. She can expect to lose 6-13# the next 8 weeks. (Say she loses 12#). She now weighs 178#. She can expect to lose 6-13# the next 8 weeks (say she loses 10#). She now weighs 168#. She can expect to lose 6-13# the next 8 weeks (say she loses 9#). She now weighs 159#. She can expect to lose 3-5# in the next 8 weeks….and so on….She started out losing 16#/8weeks when she weighed 220# and when she is 159# she can only expect to lose 3-5#/8weeks. It is not a stall! It is how this plan works.

REPEAT POST FROM August 21, 2009….Expected FAT loss after eight weeks on Steps 1 or 2 of The Metabolism Miracle

Many readers are very close to completing their first 8 weeks on Step 1 of the Miracle. I hope (wink) that you have been staying off the scale for the 8 week period. The reason frequent weighing is not recommended is that those of us with Met B following this program are not following a mathematical ‘calories in – calories out’ program. If we had “textbook” metabolism and could follow a calorie based diet and get results, regular weighing would not be a problem. Our bodies, on the other hand, don’t respond to other programs. The Metabolism Miracle is designed to rest and rehab and then train the pancreas/liver combo to work normally….we never did have a calorie problem, we had a hormonal imbalance. As such, we strive to keep our pancreas “happy and healthy” and respond to normal amounts of insulin release to enable us to handle carbohydrate appropriately. It’s not a matter of calories in and out, it’s a matter of hormonal balance and equilibrium. Instead of weight loss that appears like a descending staircase, our fat loss appears like a curlicue….so, to weigh regularly will never “make sense” to you. It’s far better to set a time period (8 weeks) and check your total fat loss at the end of the 8 week period. Because this program is based on physiology and real science, the results are very regular. The tables you will find below are not based on 1-2# weight loss/week….they are the real fat loss expectations for people with Met B who have followed the prior 8 weeks of either Step 1 or Step 2 with 85% accuracy.

With that said, our scale loss is not typical weight loss (that is composed of water weight, muscle, AND fat)….loss on The Metabolism Miracle is 100% FAT LOSS.

Initially, it’s hard to grasp the significance of this. In typical weight loss, the pounds on the scale are actually skewed because they also “show” the heavy loss of valuable water and muscle. In Met B loss on this Miracle, the pounds registered on the scale is 100% fat. Fat is light and very “large” tissue which means when we lose it, we are visibly much, much “smaller!”. You will look, feel, and respond as if you’ve lost more “weight” because the only tissue you are losing is the fat that you desire to lose. This is why MM’s (love that term!) look so healthy, vibrant, young, and lean as they lose weight. As you know, I prefer to use clothes size and the tape measure to the scale as a person with Met B. If you want to use the scale, the following table (separate for men and women) will give you a guide as to the amount of fat that should have disappeared over 8 weeks. And you are not mistaken…..you do look like you’ve lost twice the weight that you did. It’s fat loss, not weight loss! 10# of 100% fat loss will appear like a 20# weight loss…..and your labwork will improve as if you’ve had twice the loss, too!

The same tables apply to Step 1 and Step 2. There is no difference in fat burning once the panceas/liver are rested. All you need to is document your weight at the beginning of an 8 week period, find your gender, height, and starting weight on the chart…..and you will quickly find the amount of fat tissue that should have burned during the preceding 8 weeks!
