i've been slow carbing it now for 41 days. I've lost approximately 10 pounds. i can't figure out why i'm not losing more. the only thing i can think of is that i usually eat out for lunch, and now i'm paranoid that what i'm eating when i eat out is causing me not to lose more weight. i stick to the diet rules when i eat out, but i'm thinking when i order grilled chicken at a restaurant that maybe they are marinating it or cooking it in such a way that it is causing me to not lose weight. am i being paranoid?? what do you guys think?

can you go into detail what you eat regularly? do you follow the diet pretty stringently, like no diary products or drinking fruit juices?

Well it happens to some. It's not really that strange. Just keep going man! I sure you'll get your desired results as long as you don't give up. It worked for others, it'll surely work for you too. It may just take time. Although you try this chumpunk.... Keep doing same thing and observe your body's reaction. If you still don't see any positive results then you better seek professional help. And using your data, consult your doctor. There must be better ways for you to lose your weight...
Good Luck Chumpunk!
I agree with PS that it would be helpful to see a few days of exactly what you're eating. It may help you too, actually writing down everything you put in your mouth. Maybe you're consuming something without even realizing it's throwing you off?

It's not uncommon to gain lean muscle on this diet if you are doing any type of exercising. So, you potentially could have lost more than 10 lbs of fat. I for example have been getting much stronger via workouts and the scale has been slower than most to drop. I am 15lbs down ending week 7. Also, I am fairly small to begin with so I didn't have a ton to lose and it seems those last few pounds are the worst so I it's been hard. I have found, the more fat people have the quicker they lose on this diet, generally by reducing their caloric intake first and then by what they are eating second.
Keep up with it. I stalled for a little while and even gained weight one week but picked up a boost these last 2 weeks. I had a cheat day on Friday and I am ~2lbs lighter this morning which is odd after a booze filled cheat day.

Agree with the other folks - it'd be helpful to see what you're eating.
I stalled at about 10lbs too, same as Gameface in that I didn't exactly have a lot to loose in the first place, so that last few lbs is always harder.
