    Started at 204 and got down to 155, I'm 22 yrs old.

    Weightloss seems to have totally STALLED for like a year now.
    I'm trying to keep my cals 1500-1800, Protein around 100g, carbs from 50-75g, and fat??? No clue.

    Is something wrong here?

    That's a lot of fat, and at 5'2" you're probably maintaining due to your Crossfit activity. Can you back off just the fat, may make it even or less than that of protein?

    I think it would be more helpful if you posted some food logs so we have an idea of what kinds of foods you're mostly eating.

    If you're getting a lot of exercise, especially weight work, don't look at the scale. Gauge your success visually or through measurements. It is possible to lose fat and gain muscle with no net weight loss while you look better and have better fitness.

    That said, if you're doing crossfit, eating primally and not losing fat, you should look at your diet.

    It's my belt that's moving ; )

    The potatoes are rare and we're eating milk and cheese to help remineralize our teeth (Dr. Weston price)

    You could try smaller portions of the same foods. Eat just a little bit less than you have been and see if maybe your stomach doesn't really notice.

    If weight loss is your goal, I would try to replace the protein powder with something else. Maybe a few hardboiled eggs? Your body will likely be able to use this better and it will keep you more full.

    You mention your belt is moving, which does imply you're losing inches. Have you changed clothing sizes in this time period? When was the last time you took some time off from exercising or eating restrictively? Perhaps you just need a break? Often a week where you eat as much as you want (still primal foods), perhaps upping your carbs even, and a week off from exercising will let you relax a little more.
