I am a 21 year old female who currently weighs 164 lbs. I started the Cleveland clinic PSMF diet a month ago. The Cleveland clinic version of the diet is 15 oz of protein and two servings of non-starch vegetables daily. I started strong, losing 8 pounds within the first week (which I understand is mostly water loss). Since then, I have continued my same routine that I had before the diet- lifting three days per week and cardio three days per week. I spend about an hour at the gym every day. After my first eight pounds of water loss, I have only lost eight pounds in a month even with all this exercise. I have had problems losing weight in the past (ie I work out nearly every day, eat minimal carbs and a healthy diet, still can’t lose). I was told by a nutritionist that this diet would surely help me lose and most people lose 2-5 lbs per week without exercise. They have checked all my horomones and they are all normal. What can I do? Has anyone else had this issue?
