I’ve been on the BSD for 6 weeks and lost my 20 lbs. in the first two weeks. Since then, l’ve lost another 5 lbs.
Is it to be expected to now lose only 1 to 2 lbs. per week, like any other diet, even tho we’re on only 800 calories per day?
I read that the BSD diet mimics how much bariatric patients eat after surgery, but they seem to lose a lot more than 1-2 lbs. per week. I know they are heavier to begin with and maybe that’s the reason for the great weight loss.
My aim is to get rid of my prediabetes and lose about 45 more pounds but it does seem discouraging that weight loss will slow down to a crawl. I guess I expected more since this is such a very low calorie diet.
