View Full Version : First day 2lbs???
September 6th, 2006, 06:58 AM
This is my second MC. I have not done one in a few years. My husband to be likes to go out to eat ALOT and I have gained a ton of weight. I am getting married OCT 29 and I want to feel and look good. Anyway I do not remember how much I lost last time, this time I lost 2lbs the first day. I am now on day 2. Is this normal?

I wish I KNEW what "normal" is--;) If you're asking if it is REAL, it is. But remember, especially the first day, you're still getting rid of all the stuff you've eaten in the last few days still clogging up your intestines. If you're asking: will it continue (because that would be great!) It MIGHT! There have been people who have lost 2lbs/day consistently, but weight loss rates on the cleanse vary from person to person, and maybe even for a single person, depending on weight, activity level, metabolism....
I know-- because I'm one of the people who's had consistently LOW weight loss rate (DAMN! http://therawfoodsite.com/forum/images/icons/icon8.gif) of only half a pound a day, and sometimes LESS! How awful is that? But you know, even half a pound a day is a heck of a lot FASTER than you're gonna get on any "ordinary" diet which usually does no better than a pound or two a week.
Most of all: congratulations on your upcoming wedding and CONGRATULATIONS ON DECIDING TO TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF STARTING NOW! Figuring out how to best eat for YOU-- is probably one of the most important things to do as you in your new life with a partner. Wish you all the best!http://therawfoodsite.com/forum/images/icons/icon14.gif

Hi mud. welcome back and also congrats on your upcoming wedding too! The book says an average weight loss of 2 pounds a day, but everyone is different. Just like we experience detox symptoms differently. My first MC was 10 days and I lost 18 pounds. I am on day 10 of MC2 and have lost 15, but like I said we are all different. Some lose at the end. I was pretty consistant. I just am looking to get all the junk out :)
MC1 completed 8/18/06
MC2 started 8/28/06 day 10 :D

I just started my first MC ever, and I lost 3 lbs the first day!!! I'm 30 lbs overweight, and it would be awesome if that 3 lbs was consistent for every day! :rolleyes:
