In order to understand the SOW application, you should refer to the “How the Method Works” and “How the App Works” (text version) sections which can be accessed by clicking on FLO, the avatar in the application.
This may be due to several factors:
– Your daily allowance is a little too low. The body enters a “watchful state” and slows weight loss (storing). Try to maintain an intake of at least 1,100 Calories per day (setting lower allowances than this must remain exceptional).
– Also make sure you have variable allowances, even adding in a few days at 1,800 Calories here and there.
– Rely on the amount of debt you have reimbursed, rather than the weight you see on the scales.
– Avoid underestimating the Calorie totals for the foods you eat when you are adding them up.
– Wait until you have followed the method for at least one month before determining how much weight you have lost, because the value on the scale may vary by up to 5 pounds depending on how much water is retained in the body, on your menstrual cycle, on your bowl movements, etc.
– Do not take into account Calories burned through sports.
– If you are menopaused, your budget may need to be limited to 1,600 Calories (slower metabolism) but you must FIRST TRY the method with an 1,800 Calorie budget.
Please read the following information:
“Do not weigh yourself too often at the beginning and rely on your debt balance rather than the scales. Your weight may vary by up to 4 pounds depending on the day and how much water is retained in your body. The debt, on the other hand, indicates how much weight you have really lost (or gained). If you weigh yourself, for example, after saving 6,400 Calories but the scale shows you have lost 4 pounds, you are likely to see about 2 pounds reappear within a few days. This is because you have in fact saved up 6,400 Calories, in other words lost about 2 pounds, and that is really the only reliable and durable reference.
When you start out with a lot of extra weight, you may notice that you lose quickly at the beginning, even though your actual debt is decreasing at a slower rate. That will balance out in the long run and your weight loss will match the debt you have paid back.
The debt level remains the correct standard in the long term. On the scales, your weight loss may vary, but do not focus on that. The debt should be monitored over several weeks or several months, so remember not to reset it too often.
Yes, it is possible to follow the method during pregnancy but some criteria are different.
Send a friend request to our private Facebook group dedicated to PREGNANCY:
We will provide you with all the information you need through this group.
The application only works on Android and iPhone.
But we invite yoy to send a friend request to our private group:
You will be able to get information on the group and on how to follow the method even without the application.
If you do not have the application, we recommend you get The Secret of Weight book. All you need is motivation, a personal scale, and a Calorie counting guide. The book was in fact written before the application was launched and is therefore designed to be used independently. Many people successfully use the Secret of Weight method without the application.
In the meanwhile, do not hesitate to join our private Facebook group to obtain support and advice. Many members apply this method without the application.
