So I went back to AIP autoimmune protocol to focus on my health. The first time around, last September, I did lose by cutting out dairy, nuts and my gluten free treats). This time around, I lost about five pounds of bloat, and that was it. With this way of eating, I wouldn't get as hungry. Maybe I'd have lunch at 2 or 3pm, then not be hungry until bedtime. I started forcing myself to eat at regular times, because otherwise, I'd be so hungry at midnight, that I couldn't go back to sleep. Not a good idea to eat that late. I stalled. A few days ago, I went back to eating only when I was hungry, still following the AIP, and lost two pounds. This time around, I have planned better, so that I'm not facing down a bowl of beef stew at 11pm.
The point is, that for me, focusing on weight loss was making me crazy. Once I focused on my health, I could better see eating patterns that were causing me to stall.
