Sounds like your metabolism needs a jump-start. Even a 20 minute walk per day could help. Also, some people do not lose weight on this cleanse, and of course, if one returns to old eating habits, it is easy for the weight loss to be regained quickly and then some. I agree with the others too, especially the candida cleanse and parasites, both problems which can cause weight gain or retention. I never had a yeast infection in my life and was surprised when my naturopath said I had a serious yeast problem. It took me a long time to change my eating habits to discourage new growth and to kill off the overgrowth, but the extra weight I had was lost easily once the yeast problem came under control.
