Question I have... Does medifast, Nutrisystem, or lindora work better? Looking forward for any answer or 2. Second question of mine... Ive been off Nutrisystem for over 3 weeks now and last week I didn't lose any weight..

I didn't gain any, but basically I lost .2 pounds for the entire week..

I have been keeping my calories under 1800, working out 5-6 days per week and drinking all my water..

Not sure what's going on, but I feel I should have lost a couple pounds at the least. Maybe I have lost inches, I don't know because I don't measure..

I have been working out pretty intense with the weights, so maybe that has something to do with it..

I'm keeping my food at 1800 calories and at a 50%-30%-20% rate..

Maybe I'm just going through some changes..

I'll give it another week and see what happens before I get worried...

Yup, although you might wanna make sure and wait for someone else here to confirm this as I am not very confident. Better yet, why don't you contact the Nutrisystem guys because they can give you an answer better...

Hang in there, Mule! My first thought was "3 weeks without NS" - Bingo, but if you're really keeping to the 1800, then maybe try a protein shake. If you're stalled by overexercising and under calorie-ing (?) you'll see results in 1or 2 days at most. Otherwise, chalk it up to the vagaries of weight control and hang in there a bit longer..

I wish I could offer better advice than just hang in there. Maybe go out a have a big greasy burger and see if that shocks your metabolism back up. I wouldn't go past just that one burger then give it a week or so and see if it worked. Every human being is different and different remedies work differently on different people..

I'm on my 5th day and other than the initial blast-loss I haven't lost too much yet, but I'm really looking forward to that pound a day honeymoon. Even if it is my second marriage, I'm wearing white. lol..

I believe you're not eating enough. At almost 195 I was consuming 2200 calories a day while working out days a week and losing 2 lbs a week. Contrary to popular belief, it's hard to gain muscle on a calorie deficit diet. I would bump the calories up by 100-150 a day for a week and see if that helps. But stick to protein sources since they require more calories burned to digest them...

Ninerbuff beat me to it. You need to feed the muscle. I'm in the process of transitioning from weight loss to muscle gain which means I'm adding calories (having been motivated by Gordon's success). Since I'm totally paranoid about calories (I've been losing about 2 pounds a week at 1800 calories with significant cardio) I need to get to about 2100 to support an intense weight training plan I'm going to begin...

You Go, Dick!! My thinking exactly - withing striking distance of goal seems to be a good time to shoot for muscle build over conditioning. Besides, beach season is coming. I need somthing to fill up this sagging skin. FWIW, I don't count it as success yet, but will admit to significant progress..

We'll see in a month or two. If things go to plan, I'll be downright insufferable..

I have added a protien drink that I make myself (or a Muscle Milk)on days I work out. Then I eat my regular 1800 on top of that. That puts me over 2000 easily..

We will see what happens on weigh in day next Monday...
