I'd say not enough calories. You're not eating enough carbs, like dense veggies like potatoes or sweet potatoes, or grains, or any other variety of cooked vegetables. You didn't say if you're doing raw, I don't think, (did you?) How about broccoli, peas, edemame, corn, green beans, pasta/sauce...etc<br><br>
The big salads you're eating aren't calorie heavy, unless you're adding salad dressings to them. <b>5 pounds is an awful lot to lose in one week</b>, unless you've gone from like 6000 calories down to 1500. Do you make stews or chilis or pastas, or wraps. How about some bean burritos loaded with spinach and tomatoes and salsa?</div>

Dont worry too much about that. It is important your body isnt starving and is getting proper nutrition to build muscle.

does that mean 2 servings of 1 cup of brown rice each? Wasn't sure what your two servings were of, or if the 1 cup was both of the two servings? I would say you'd need more than a full cup of rice per day, (I only eat a half cup myself), but I'm not sure if you can blame a 2# weight gain on that.<br><br>
Don't forget your weight can fluctuate with your cycle, hormone levels, food/fluid intake/output, and your bowel movements.
