Re: Can you plateau while you fast?

As you continue to fast your metabolism will slow down and the rate of weight loss will slow down considerably. Your present rate of 1.5 pounds a day is pretty average for the first week or so. You will probably see a loss of a half pound or less a day as your body slows down, this is simply how fasting works. Many people find that their rate of weight loss is faster when they fast one or two days a week and eat a healthy, nutrient dense but low calorie diet the rest of the time. One of the biggest issues that long term fasters face is a rapid weight gain once the fast is over and eating returns. A low calorie diet must be maintained for weeks or months while the metabolism returns to normal. I don't know if this is what you mean by a plateau, but it is part of the physiology of fasting.
