I : I believe you are more concerned ( and frustrated) with failing to lose weight than you are by the scale moves up and down by several pounds. You would not be upset, i would guess if the scale kept showing lower numbers with your effort. Weight loss is difficult. If you are not losing then you are taking in and burning up around the same amount of calories. Multiple steps are needed to make progress.

By the way, most experts do not recommend reducing meat intake to reduce kidney stone recurrence. An analysis of your urine from a 24 hours collection usually guides changes in diet, and need for medication. If you have uric acid stones, you may have an acid urine or might excrete too much uric acid. The treatment is usually medication which works better than restricting meat intake. ...Read more
