Stall in the soft food stage



Recommended Posts

I stalled when I went in the pureed stage and now stalling again in the soft food stage. Is this normal? Still trying to eat between 300 to 400 calories. Maybe not eating enough?

When I increased calories a little I lost weight. May want to try 400-500 and see what happens.

Stalls happen, no rhyme or reason for them. You just have to ride them out. IMO, anything that "breaks a stall" is just concidence, unless you are eating at your BMR, and you decrease your cals, which clearly isn't your situation.

There's an infamous Week 3 or Week 4 stall that everyone experiences. Then other stalls just happen even if we're doing everything right. I would eat around 600 calories if I were you and not worry about the scale.

Don't worry about stalls right now! Your body is going through a lot of changes and doesn't know what is going on! My advice is to stay off the scale and focus on your Fluid and Protein intake. The weight loss will come, you just need to be patient.

Well I have to worry a little as I have a total knee replacement surgery scheduled and it's on the condition I can get to 240. 248.6 right now so hope this comes off soon.

But worrying won’t help the situation. Just stick with your program, and recognize you’re doing everything you can.
