    Dairy

    Primal Fuel
    Does dairy stop your weight loss or make it slower?
    Just curious about others personal experiences with it.
    Thanks

    No. Eating a week of 1200 cal/day (and 14-1500 on Sat & Sun) results in the same weight loss no matter what foods I consume. Generally 1-3 pounds/wk when more than 50 pounds overweight and 1-2 pounds/wk under that amount.

    The only thing that slows my weight loss is alcohol.

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    Joanie, how many times have you dropped that much weight? Maybe severe calorie restriction isnt the answer?

    A few. This time, I have the "after" plan. And I'm not setting the "thinner than everyone else," goal. I've always known I can drop weight and also always known that I don't do well keeping it off (longest time was six years). I'm an emotional eater. I've always looked at losing weight as a goal oriented thing. Now, health is more the goal, and if I'm not as thin as the cute little 20year old upstairs, I'm not worried.

    I do believe calorie restriction is the only way to lose weight. But after that, you can't go back to the way you used to eat or it will all come back. Hopefully I've finally learned. But if not, I'll just climb back on. I'm very close to a decent weight for me and some people think I don't need to lose any more. 1200 calories is really very comfortable if you don't waste your calories on things like bread, pasta, and ice cream. It's a nice amount of food.

    Could be wrong here, but aren't you supposed to avoid eating under your BMR?

    to lose weight you eat less than your BMR to create a deficit.

    Eating your BMR is suppose to maintain your weight.

    Um, I think you mean TDEE (Total Daily Energy Expenditure). BMR is if you quite literally lie around in bed all day and do nothing.

    Might wanna look into it - could be eating more than you think. ^_^
