I lost 15 pounds on my first MC, after I quit I put on about 5 pounds. This last Master-Cleanse I have lost 13 pounds, and expect to gain some of it back. Remember, our systems are pretty empty while fasting, once we start eating, we will have some of the weight from food added. I do believe that a cleaner detoxed body will assimilate foods better, and weight loss will be easier. Try to focus on this. Hopefully, the fat loss during a fast will be permanent, but some weight will come back.
