I am fairly short too, it was easy for me to lose but during the time I wanted to lose weight I did primal very strictly. No flour or sugar, including coconut, honey or maple syrup or sweetener of any kind whatsoever, (using coconut flour etc. to make pancakes and other baked goods are the cheats) some fruit everyday but stuck to berries, plus my regular half a banana with breakfast. So stuck to meat, veg. fruit and fat. I also had no form of potato or rice. I also stopped eating altogether from around 6.30 until around 10am next day. Had 3 meals a day and no snacks. I admit that my exercise is rather sporadic, but I did make an effort to at least do a good fast 20 min walk most days. Hopefully some of the things I did will help you too. To try and keep my weight from getting too low now, I have added in some rice and potato and sugar treats (but I really must cut out the sugar, just not good for me)
