Is it common to have a gain of a few pounds, just before/during your period? I've been sticking to the plan, drinking gallons of water and I'm 4lbs up this morning. It's a bit disheartening, but I'll KOKO. Will it drop off after I'm finished or is it gain?

Not uncommon. The hormonal change can affect how your body responds to low carb, and/or cause water retention. KOKO and you'll be fine. flowers

It will be water retention from your hormone shift, don't worry! you won't have put on 4lbs smile
