So I just had my weekly weigh in this morning and I lost another 2 pounds!!! I had hit a sticking point a few weeks ago in my weight loss (5'11" 183 lbs.) and weighed in at 181 this morning.
I know 2 pounds isn't a big deal over the course of several weeks but the way that I got there seems to defy logic. I lost the weight by increasing my calories by 500-600 calories a day. I didn't just increase calories though, I also dropped my carbs from 200-225g a day to 140-160g a day. I should also note that I am eating only primal / paleo foods.
This definitely flies in the face of the calories in, calories out theory of weight loss. I'd be interested to see if I dropped my carbs even further if I would experience even more weight loss but there's not much more I can do to lower carbs without giving up my beloved fruit .
Anyhow, just wanted to pass along some more anecdotal evidence that's its not just about calories. Food choices are also VERY important if not more important than calories.
