Muscle gain?

What exactly have you been eating? Are you drinking a ton of water? Have you cut too many calories?

Give a rundown of everything - including alcohol - you've consumed.

Well that would be hard to do! I don't really use a food diary. I try to eat as clean as possible. but sometime I am stuck on the road and have to eat what i can. I try to get something that will cause the least damage. And i do have the occasional beer or two, And yes my g/f make me take her out to eat so I know that is a problem. But i usually don't have this much of a problem with it.

Breakfast is usually 3-4 eggs cooked in olive oil with some veggies or etc and a orange

Mixed nuts for snacks

lunch is usually leftovers

Dinner is lean protein veggies and fruit

Keep a food log, if you can, but, if you're being honest with yourself about what you're eating, then you've got nothing to worry about. Just stick with the program.

That said, a food log might show you surprising things, even if you think you're being completely up front about your diet.

You could be gaining muscle. Since I began this program some 4 months ago, I haven't lost any weight. But I can tell you one thing, I sure as heck look a whole lot different. I wish I had taken a picture when I started. Clothes fit a whole lot different, too.

Like VBM says, just keep at it. It's part of my morning routine when I first get up. Just like brushing my teeth.

weight is not a good measure, take a tape and measure around your belly. Muscle weighs a lot more than fat.

Doesn't matter what "program" you follow. Diet is at least 70% of the issue. Most say 80%. If you are trying to lose weight and it isn't happening, then check your diet.

Why are you worried so much about weight? Got someting against gravity?

Do you feel/look better? Can you get a good fat test done? Are you jst beginning a fitness program?

I ask these questions because:

1: IF you look and feel better, then getting depressed because of the earth's pull on you is silly.

2. You can quash your fears if you know your gaining muscle versus fat and

3. If you're just beginning, it's likely you'll add quite a bit of muscle at first. It's a perk of being a beginner, muscle packs on fast. Eventually it will level out and the fat will start dropping.

Bottom line, working out is good for you no matter your weight, so keep doing it, eat clean (mostly fresh meats, fruits and vegetables) and throw your $^%#@! scale in the garbage. :twisted:
