    Ew, I love dressings WAY too much to live without them, and find naked salad boring at best, usually bitter and dry.

    I make my own dressings once a week.

    Primal ranch? Easy.

    1 cup homemade mayonnaise 1/4 cup sour cream
    1/4 cup buttermilk
    1/2 teaspoon dried chives
    1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
    1/2 teaspoon dried dill weed
    1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/4 teaspoon onion powder
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
    The more I see the less I know for sure.

    this is a strange response for me, but are you eating more lean protein (at the expense of eating fat?). i've noticed that i start to be more "poofy" if i let my protein get "too high" for more than a day or too in a row. which can be easy to do because the lean protein is not as satiating. although i generally have very high protein anyway, i find that i stay leaner when i'm eating mid-fat/high fat choices-- like chicken thighs without skin, duck, fatty fish, rabbit-- that i do on either very high fat choices (lamb, chuck steak, brisket) or very low fat choices (tilapia, chicken breast, etc.). a little from either group doesn't seem to bother me an iota, but if I make a habit of consuming either exclusively it's hello pudge.

    I will have to try that, my biggest roadblock right now is the mayo. I have tried making it a few times and it either comes out tasting to much like the oil or so runny that I can't spread it right. On my next paycheck I plan to buy a whole lot of ingredients and just play with it till I get it right.

    Interesting. I usually eat a lot of lean meats rather than ones with a mid to high fat content. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if I am not getting enough fat. I did find a bag of boneless skinless chicken thighs the other day at Sam's Club (I know, not the best quality but what I can afford) and I have noticed that I am reaching for them more often than the breast I have in the freezer now so maybe my body is telling me to cut back on the lean meat.

    Hey people I need some help here! I too experience the same thing, ie losing weight but gaining body fat. I did the measurement of hips/neck/forearm/waist ratio at regular interval and the calculation really threw me off. I had lost 2kg in 1mth but I gained a total of 2% body fat. I am on a 60% fat (80-90g), 30% protein (70-80g) and 10% carbo (40-50g)...

    What could be the reason???

    No matter what the calculations are, it's very unlikely that you are consistently losing weight and gaining fat. If you lost about 1 lb per week (.5 kg per week), it's very unlikely you are actually gaining fat.

    IMHO, calculations and body fat measurement scales are less effective than visual assessments of weight loss.
