so could not eating enough Protein stop weight loss? I'm having trouble getting anywhere close to the amount of protein im suppose to be taking in. I'm having trouble meeting my Fluid intake as well... just wondering if this is whats causing my stall (actually 2lb weight gain)! at 4 weeks.

Not consuming enough Protein will not stop your weight process, it will under nourish your muscles and cause you to lose muscle mass. Do you monitor your menstrual cycle closely, as your weight gain can be Water weight in PMS mode. Is it just Fluid your intake problem or can you eat mushy foods?

Maybe adding unflavored Protein Powder your meals can help up your protein intake.

almost everyone has their first stall during the first month post-op. It's usually the third week, but not always. Do a search on "the three week stall" - you should find hundreds of posts on it. Just stick to your plan and your weight loss will start up again. I stalled during weeks 2 and 3. My weight loss started up again during week 4, and I dropped like eight pounds almost overnight.
