i) The Plateau
A plateau is when there is no weight loss over a 4 day period even though the Protocol has been religiously followed. This usually occurs during the second half of a full programme particularly in patients that have been doing well and whose average of a pound a day (or more) has been achieved up to that point. It seems to be a natural phenomena and always corrects itself. Nevertheless patients, used to a regular daily drop, may get concerned in that they are no longer responding normally to treatment.

In order to reestablish the normal weight loss pattern revbert to a flesh and fruit only diet for a day or so. Only water should be taken for drink and the usual six glasses/day should be consumed. 

ii) Inadequate Water Consumption
Many dieters find it difficult to comprehend that reducing water intake far from serving to reduce water retention actually slows down weight loss and increases water retention. This is because when fluid intake is insufficient the body withholds water from the kidneys, the urine becomes scanty and highly concentrated, and the kidneys are put under strain. If water is still inadequate it is drawn from the intestinal tract, with the result that the feces become hard and dry. During this process in which the body devotes its attention to securing an adequate water supply there is a hiatus in weight loss.

iii) Constipation
We have already seen how an excess of water keeps the faeces soft which is very important in the obese who commonly suffer from constipation and a spastic colon. The dieter needs to appreciate that owing to the restricted diet it is perfectly satisfactory and normal to have an evacuation of the bowel only once every three to four days and that, provided plenty of fluids are taken, this never leads to any disturbance.

iv) Reaching a Former Weight Level
(or Previous Recalibration)

This absence of loss of weight may last 7 days or more but fortunately it is a rare phenomenon and only occurs in those patients who during some period of their lives have maintained a certain fixed degree of obesity over a period of many years and have then at some time rapidly increased beyond that weight. When then in the course of weight loss the former level is reached, it may take over 7 days of no loss, in spite of the 3F Protocol before further reduction is resumed. This is an example of a previous recalibration which had been locked away within the metabolic memory bank without the knowledge of the dieter.

v) Menstrual Interruption
This interruption of weight loss is one which often occurs a few days before and during the menstrual period and in some women at the time of ovulation. No corrective action need be taken as following the event normal weight loss is resumed.

Pregnancy

vi) On Becoming Pregnant
When a woman becomes pregnant during treatment (not uncommon) she at once ceases to lose weight. If after 4 days there is still an unexplained arrest in weight loss a pregnancy test should be carried out which if positive will necessitate the woman resuming a full diet and postponing all dieting plans until another more suitable time and occasion. 

vii) Dietary Indiscretions

Dietary indescritons


Any cessation in weight loss other than those listed above (or even weight gain) can almost invariably be attributed to a dietary lapse on the part of the dieter. 
On such occasions the dieter may express complete innocence of any error or even express amazement that only a couple of biscuits extra (weighing perhaps just an ounce) could be the cause for such a dramatic turnaround. It must be remembered that it is not the weight of what is eaten that plays the determining role but rather the amount of water which the body requires to accommodate the extra food. This can be illustrated in the case of table salt which requires for every teaspoon consumed one liter of water for assimilation. Thus, if a person consumes one teaspoonful of salt their weight will go up by more than two pounds.

viii) Dietary Salt
Dieters may think it strange that having just seen how salt intake dramatically affects daily weight loss (gain) the Protocol makes no restriction on its daily intake. This is because the objective of the Protocol is to reduce adipose tissue and not to effect an illusory weight loss by depriving the metabolism of salt. However although the free use of salt is permitted the daily intake should be maintained at a constant level otherwise any increase will of course be followed by a corresponding increase in weight. The increase in the intake of salt is one of the most common causes for an increase in weight from one day to the next. Such an increase can be ignored as it in no way influences the regular loss of fat


Exercise -
Just forget it whilst on the "3F" Diet

ix) Do I need to work out and exercise?
No, exercise is not recommended with the 3F Protocol. The following points will help to highlight why the 3F diet is so different to the conventional weight loss plan where one is advised to eat less and exercise more?

a)  The limited caloric intake of the 3F diet of 500 Cal/day is simply not enough to support an intense workout. The diet for most conventional programmes is around 1000 Cal/day (or higher).and consequently some excercising is possible.

b) Exercise in general increases hunger. The combination of the low calorie diet and the exercise could well exceed the physiological capability of the Homeopathic resulting in acute hunger pangs causing in turn the resolve of the dieter to dissolve. 

c) While limited amounts of exercise are permitted (20 mins of walking for instance) intense workouts could cause the body to go into starvation mode; holding onto the very weight one is trying to lose.

d) Those dieters using the Homeopathic and who would like to work out during the dietary programme should realise that the weight and fat loss achieved by accurately following the Portocol are worth the sacrifice. The final result will be a healthy body sculpture and increased vitality with which to recommence a new and more invigourating post Protocol exercise programme.
