  • Whats goin' on???

    I dont understand it!! NO sugar passes my lips and my calorie count is around 2000 max per day.
    Im 51, female, 5ft 4" and weight 146lbs.

    My percentages are 65% fat (coconut and animal fats only) 25% protein and 10% carbs.

    Im reasonably active most days but can I get my weight down? No I cant!!! Not even a pound!! Week after week my weight stays the same and my mesurements stay the same!

    Whats happening here????
    I'm not a complete idiot! There's parts missing!!

      Hi Rattybag,

      Not sure about the weight issues.. just wanted to pop on and say your sig had me laughing out loud. I love it
      I don't believe there is one correct way of eating for everybody, and I don't believe there is one correct way of eating for a person through every stage of their life

          How long has it been?
          Can you give us a run-down of what you eat and do on an average day?

            Yes but not obsessively.

              Its been months! And I couldnt be any stricter with my diet.
              Yesterday was a typical days food for me:

              Breakfast: Bulletproof coffee with 20g grass-fed butter and 15ml MCT oil.
              Lunch: 2 boiled eggs, 1/2 avocado with half tin of sardines.
              Dinner: Sausagmeat stuffed marrow (about 1/4 of med sized one) topped with melted grated cheddar cheese, with spinach and broccoli.
              Evening nibbles: 8 pecan nuts and an apple.

              About 4 coffees on and off during the day (with a touch of cream.)

              Think thats about it!!

                2000C may be too much then. Try cutting back on the fats, seeing as you are aiming to burn body fat, and/or why not try some weights work. Worked for me and I have grown to enjoy it a lot.

                  Oh, just read your food. It looks like you have hit on a recipe for maintenance. Since you want to lose, something will have to change. My first impression is that fat is high - butter plus oil for breakfast but no protein, for example. Evening has both the cheese and the pecans. These are great primal foods, but high calorie - I eat them now but had to limit them for fat loss.

                  I am 49, 5'4", approx 129lb now.

                    Hello, maybe the BP coffee is not a good idea. Can you make it without fat and rely on your fat stores instead ? And then, in the evening, instead of broccoli and nuts, add potatoes and enjoy a couple of fruits ?

                      Why would you recommend potato and fruit instead of broccoli for fat loss?

                        I typed everything into MyFitnessPal and you're just scraping over 1000cal. Even assuming some discrepancies, it doesn't bring you to 2000.

                        Your protein is under 60g.
                        I wouldn't be cutting any fat. Fat doesn't make you fat.

                        But you could be under eating ? So you get hungry at all or are you completely satisfied with this?

                          FrenchFry - eating fat makes your body more efficient burning fat. Potatoes and fruit do not.

                            Yes, but surely a little fat is enough to start the fat burning process, it would seem unnecessary to eat so much fat that the body need not start drawing on its own stores.

                              I am not an expert at all in these things but I have experimented a few things. I went low carb for a while and lost some visceral fat very easily (during my wheat belly experiment). But a posteriori, I believe it's because I decreased inflammation in my body and changed some hormonal balance. But then, I was stuck at some body fat and weight, regardless of the workouts. So I upped my carbs in the evening, and sometimes I skipped lunch (for breakfast, I am on black coffee only, I never was a BF eater - typical french style: croissants, coffee but going wheat free made me ditch the croissants). So I ended up IF'ing by skipping lunch a few times a week (otherwise I eat lots of proteins and some fat, little carbs for lunch) and do the opposite for evening meals. I don't snack at all (no nuts, dried fruits, etc), never had but that's just me. This made me break through and got me really lean. My WO is still the same: body weight stuff, biking, walking, sprints.

                              But I am a man in my 30's ...
