    Dairy doesn't work for me. You could try doing the leptin reset and/or intermittent fasting- fasting helps burns fat pretty well and can help reduce hunger also. I've found the less exposure to insulin the better though you do still need to be primal, exercise etc. You could also try a brief Atkins Fat Fast now or later when it gets cold out:

    My weight loss is slow when I go over 80g of carbs per day.

    Which would make complete sense if you weren't being inverse with your fat consumption.

    I was 300 pounds, but I do not eat less than my 130 pound friend. Does the number of counts, it is calories.

    My friends would constantly snack and eat 8 times a day, when the little old 300 pounds, then I try to look only to a small hamburger and French fries and a small chocolate bar for lunch. I was thinking chocolate bar for breakfast gives me the energy to take in the morning, but eventually I would like very hungry, and until I found that spiking my insulin levels in the presence of sugar will cause the collapse of the stone.

    Hi Stella...I believe dairy products may be contributing to your problem. Here's a good article to help you understand. Also go light on the nuts.Good luck!

    Eliminate all dairy except parmesan & try intermittent fasting. Calorie cycling might also be a useful tweak- more one day, less the next. Check your body fat %, that is what you really want to track.

    If I go too low carb for too long, I get depressed and stop losing weight. Moving up to 75g or so might help you. Have you tried IF? I frequently do a super easy version with dinner over before 6 and no breakfast until 7:30/8. Have you looked at the other tenets of PB - sleep, stress, play, etc?

    I suspect the weight *gain* wasn't fast and steady either. Give it another 3-4 weeks, and really listen to your body. Eat primal foods when you're hungry, DO NOT EAT when you're NOT hungry. This way you'll be eating what your body asks for. Food you eat when you're not hungry is unecessary. Don't eat snacks and mini-meals to stave off hunger. Let yourself get hungry, truly hungry, at least once a day. Then eat a real meal and get nice and full. Carry on with your day. There is no magic here.

    I love nuts too but they really flatlined my weightloss.
    No there really may be no such thing as "starvation mode".

    Reduce/eliminate dairy and try calorie/carb cycling- eat no carbs a few days a week and see if that helps. Intermittent fasting also & cold thermogenesis.

    No, Darth, no! Next you'll tell me Santa Claus isn't diabetic!

    I'm one of those for whom low-carb has worked, but it worked slowly. I'm also a young-ish, active male. I do carb load every few days, or when it feels right - like after sprinting. I also get enough iodine by eating seafood and seaweed a few times a week to keep my thyroid running well. Got to baby that thyroid, it is a crucial key to staying trim. More so for women, it seems judging by threads I've seen here.
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.
