Gluten-free oatmeal sweetened with berries.
Eat your hamburgers protein style -- which is wrapped in lettuce instead of a bun.
Most of the loss will be due to 1) how truthful you were to the diet and 2) how much you actually had to loose. As well as other health factors that may have been impacting your weight.
The other thing to keep in mind is that you may not loose as much at first, as your body gets use to the new diet. But this is a life long change. You should continue to loose while on balance mode.
When I did the ignite phase I went pretty hard core. If sugar was on the list of ingredients -- I didn't eat it. Including items like pasta sauce and sandwich meet -- and ham of any kind.
I lost over 30 pounds during ignite. You could make the case for under 10g, but really you trying to teach your body to do with out AND teach yourself to find new foods to enjoy that are healthier. Why not go all the way -- the 21 days goes faster that you would think.
Try coconut aminos instead of soy sauce. Same taste but no soy or gluten. Also can be used to make soy free teriyaki --- yum
I still crave chocolate (especially around that time). I found that if you get rick (allergy free) milk chocolate bars -- The only thing you have to count is the sugar. And it's delicious.
The ignite diet is a good guide for how you should be eating. But I wouldn't follow the strictness of the 21 day ignite phase. Instead, look towards balance phase as your guide. It's healthy eating -- not dieting.
Hey symmie, I have the same thing, I already eliminated 4 of the 6 evils. Why not add dairy and sugar to the list for a little while. :)

Like sleekbird said, muscle weighs more than fat. If you have been following your workouts you will be gaining muscle. That's a good thing.
Another culprit is water weight or time of day. It's normal that weight fluctuates during the day. You will weigh more in the evening. So you should always weigh at the same time on the same scale.
The reason they want you to look at measurements, or body mass, is because it it more accurate than weight to judge your progress.
The recipes are suggestions, but you need to know what they are in advance to buy the ingredients.
