Has anyone else gained weight on the oms diet? I see that most people lose weight, but that is not the case for me.
You are not alone! Prior to finding OMS I managed to lose three stone. Since beginning OMS I have put 2 stone back on. I think there are a couple of reasons for this:
1) I began OMS after suffering a relapse that affected my mobility, so I don't move around as much as I used to (I have been on crutches for 18 months).
2) I have also been diagnosed with slow transit constipation, which means that I don't go to the loo as often as I used to (sometimes as infrequently as once a week).
I am sure that the initial weight gain was due to my relapse but I am very surprised that I have not been able to shift ANYTHING despite my mobility slowly improving.
Is it possible that you have had similar experiences? It can get a bit disheartening reading about everyone else's weight loss when you are struggling at the opposite end of the scale! (though I appreciate that it must be just as hard for people who can't afford to lose!).
I have tried going back to the original detox I did which helped me lose the weight prior to OMS, but sticking with all the OMS principles (so in effect I did 2 days with no carbs and then ate smaller amounts of carbs than usual fort another 8 days). I lost maybe a pound or two, but nowhere near the 7lb loses I had experienced first time round!
I am afraid I don't have any answers for you, but I can sympathise!
