It seems to be working pretty good for me as long a keep sugar, gains and alcohol out of the equation. I normally stay between 55-65% on the fat side - and try to keep the carbs under 20%. The rest is protein.
I'm slowly losing as long as I stay on course. I'm also hypothyroid and on Armour. Doc has me at a level that is slightly above the prescribed "normal" range. She says as long as I'm feeling good and not having any issues (such as racing heart) then there's no reason to be concerned. She also knows I'm on VLC and isn't concerned. She's a traditional/holistic cross over doc - and she eats Paleo and does CrossFit.
