I also should mention that I work out 3-5 times a week. I mix it up and am usually either in the gym, the garage with my jump rope, tractor tire and kettlebells or out jamming in a quick set of sprints (once a week or so on the sprints). I am wondering if I am pushing too hard on my workouts and not getting adequate carbs back in the system for recovery along with the other macros I consume...fat and protein. I find that I feel "hungry" most of the time...which if I am not careful results in constant snacking, which even on approved PB foods still means excess calories and lack of fat loss and progress.
I guess that's my main issue. I am not seeing the BF% reduction I thought I would see once I cut processed carbs entirely and dropped my carb consumption overall to 50-100g a day.
