- I would cut gluten entirely. Things like crackers, if your body is sensitive to gluten (and IMO everybody is) could hinder your results.
- Your body has a set-point for its fat and you sometimes have to go to extremes to modify that set-point. About how much grams of carbs to you eat per day? You could probably benefit from going a couple of weeks very low carbs with very high fat and moderate protein. This will tell your body to really become fat adapted and insulin sensitive.
- Make sure your omega-3/omega-6 ratios are about equal. Nuts a often high in omega-6. You could benefit from cutting them for a while.
Hope this helps
