Really pleased to hear that things are going well just now, and that that 'Drop' you could feel has started. how was lunch with your friend?
Good for you upping your fats. I would say though that if you are partaking in exercise ala Marks LHT programme I would start upping the protein again. When I say things like that to my clients they moan about not wanting to get big man muscles. I then have to tell them a shortened version (for my own sanity if nothing else) that to get big man muscles you have to eat like a big man. What I mean is if I wanted to be 20 stone, eating like a 10 stone person wouldnt cut it.
Once I get through to them that eating protein and working out (bodyweight movements are perfectly adequate) will tone their muscles (the word tone brings smiles to them - even though toning is building .... Dont get me started haha) and I then have the pleasure of informing them that this increase In lean body mass no matter how small has the added benefit that more lean body mass burn more calories when rested than fat does. What this means is that even when your sitting watching tv your body will burn more calories just to maintain normal bodily functions.
So up your fat, and if you are exercising up your protein and watch the scale tumble downwards. Oh I meant to add. Along with almonds try sunflower seeds....loads of fat and protein in them. Yum.
That was bordering on a rant haha.
