I'm thinking of backing off of the oil for a bit. Not b/c it isn't working or I don't believe in it, but b/c I am having trouble fitting it into the macros for muscle building. At the urging of my trainer I am going to increase my protein intake to 35-38% of calories. Just to stay in my caloric range, I'm going to have to reduce fat b/c my carb intake is already fairly low and made up almost exclusively of veggies & occasional fruit in season. I think I just need to get past this hurdle of exchanging additional body fat for muscle. It is a slower than I would like process, which is why he's suggesting the uptake in protein, but I think once I've made some progress on that front I will be able to focus on lowering my setpoint again. Anyway, I'll stop back in the check on you all and make sure Joolia is behaving.
Starting Weight: 197.5
Current Weight: 123
Lost 75# eating low carb (20-40 g) and then MDA primal low carb. Tried many other options but only LC helped me lose weight and improve health. Now at a good weight, I find my body can tolerate a few more carbs but rarely go over 100 g.
