Having only been on OMS eating regime for 2 weeks I wonder if anyone else experienced a significant weight gain early on in the process? I have followed everything to the letter and the reality is that there isn't a massive change from what I ate previously but the scales say I have gained almost 3kgs in 2 weeks...not a trend that I want to continue for too long.
Funny you should mention this, but I too am in week two of my fish popping diet (so yummy ) like you. My othe main change is no cream, milk and cheese as I have always eaten a pretty healthy fish, whole food plant based diet so why am I putting on weight? I have put it down to my age and hormones (44). Other posts I have read talk about losing weight on this diet (which I think I was secretly hoping to do) I decided to not step on the scales for another 2 weeks and then review. If I am still putting on weight I shall keep a food diary and see if I have a portion problem as maybe my brain thinks I am resrticting my food intake because I am on this strict ( hopefully life changing) diet and so is without me realising compensating by encouraging me to eat more. Or perhaps it's my daily glug or two of red wine as this is my not so secret pleasure
For now though as it's all so new I am trying to relax into this new appraoch which is not easy with xmas coming up and lots of social invites out I have rung so many restaurants this week to see if they will cater for me. Some have been great others well lets say they have been not as great. So many people saying one night off won't matter is hard too. But I am determind for the first 9 months to be true to the plan.
At least I have xmas day sorted Lobster for my xmas dinner. I explained this to my teenage kids and guess what no turkey in the house this year they wanted lobster too and hubby was so pleased as he said he has always hated turkey so he is deciding between sweet juicy lobster and a prime rare fillet of best steak!! Luckily traditional parents have decided to head over to my brother who has little children for xmas ( not to eat lol) so I don't feel guilty about the turkey just excited about a yummy christmas dinner with all the usual trimmings hope this helps as it's nice to find someone at the same point as me. I started on the 7th what was your start date ?
