the sugar alcohols in those atkins bar stall lots of peeps. if you want a snack, eat some hard-boiled eggs or a chicken leg. some sliced turkey and cheese.
for the last 10 months i had a mirena iud, which secretes progesterone. among other bad side effects, i could not lose the weight i put on while having it. i had it removed monday and am down 6 pounds in 4 days, even though my flow has resumed with a vengeance and i had 3 glasses of wine last night. normally that tom/wine combo and i'd be super bloated.
sounds like you're tracking your foods? 70% fat may just be too high. instead of added fats, eat fattier meats. might wanna add more protein and carbs, like leafy greens, and lower the fats. broccoli, cauliflower and zucchini are kinda carby. i'm like you, i don't like sweet potatoes or bananas at all and too much fruit just isn't good for me. i eat berries just a few times per week.
and yeah, ditch the soda. it's just awful for you.
As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
