So I have officially hit my Week 3 stall. I was losing about a pound a day and the last 5 days, nothing, nada, zilch... How do I break thru the dreaded week 3 stall? I'm still on pureed foods. I get in more than my daily amount of Water. I meet my Protein standards and take my Vitamins. What else can I do?

Be patient and wait it out. Not much you can do. It'll break on its own, when it wants to. Just know that your body is still changing for the better, even though the scale doesn't reflect it. Just continue getting your Protein and your fluids, and move your body.

It sounds counterintuitive, but increasing your caloric intake with healthy choices can help to break a stall. I saw weight loss again after adding in an afternoon smoothie made with Protein Powder or high-protein yogurt like Fage. Your body needs to have a sufficient amount of calories to function properly. The stall is sort of like your body's way of taking a break after running a marathon. Try to be patient and keep the faith. Almost everyone has the "dreaded three week stall." For some it's very brief, and for others it lasts a month. Most of us do then resume weight loss.
