    If you're down to 10-15 pounds, you may also benefit from Intermittent Fasting. It worked for me to shave off those last few pounds.

      Two weeks is just the time it takes (in average) to switch from the carbs burning metabolism to that of fats.

      You have reduced sugars, did you increase your fat intake? This is a common error people do, not eating enough fats.

        If you're eating them for any reason other than hunger, then its food your body didn't ask for. This might be a clue to those extra 10lb.

          Have you tried 90% for 6 weeks? And not just eating. How about 90% compliance to the whole Blueprint?

            I recently lost 10 lbs. in four weeks, and went down from 12 % to 8 % of bodyfat, so it doesn't need to be a fight for years to take off the last amount of stubborn bodyfat either, it all depends on the set-up of the diet and exercise...

                This can work, but make sure you are fat adapted first For me this required being 100% though for a month first.

                90% could work for you, but you may be like me where 100% only works. If I allow treats, I end up worse off, as I crave more and more crap.


                Good luck

                  Kelly you just answered your own question of why you are not losing.

                    Agree. Your exercises of choice need to fit in nicely with diet.

                      The scales could stay the same even though you've lost fat

                        Yes, that's why you measure also. But no need to abandon the scales all together unless you want to.
