Weight gain on Insanity
Weight gain on Insanity
12/12/12 5:46 PM
I have been doing Insanity and following the nutrition guide (to the letter) for 2 weeks and I have gained 9 pounds. Can anyone tell me why this is happening? I rarely eat any sweets or unhealthy food; only about ounce a week.

Hi Kjeneca,
There can be 2 reasons:
1) It is normal to gain some weight due to water retention in the first weeks of a new exercise program, though 9 pounds seems a bit excessive.
2) You might be eating too much calories. How did you calculate them?

I've been eating about 1700-2000 calories a day. This is less than what was suggested using the formula from the nutrition guide.
