    Amen!

    OP - give bacon a try! I love cooking things in bacon grease. I cook 2-3 strips of bacon in a pan, remove when crispy but keep the grease in the pan. I sautee veggies, cook my meat, make over-easy eggs... all in the grease. Any leftover grease I actually keep in a jar on my counter so if I run out when cooking something, I can just grab a spoonful of the congealed grease and add it to my pan.

    What are you doing for exercise?

    I'm not sure I would categorize rock climbing as "intense" (exerting, tiring yes).

    Are you lifting heavy things? this is a HUUUUGE part of the primal blueprint!
    Are you moving around (walking, hiking)
    Are you sprinting twice a week?

    regardless once a week is not going to help you lose additional weight without cutting the amount of food you are eating.
    If you don't want to up your exercise then I would recommend the following:

    cut out the nuts (this is kind of a primal cliche for losing weight), up your chocolate to 85%+

    Regarding rock climbing as not intense: check out this article and let me know if you feel that it falls into the realm of intense exercise (maybe it does).

    Maybe I missed how tall you were?? But where did you come up with 170 as an ideal weight?
    Do you have a sedentary job? If so, one rock climbing session a week probably isn't enough physical activity.
    The last 10 pounds are always the hardest to lose too and will often take a bit longer than you want so patience (in addition to adding more foooood/fat) might be the answers

    Following the advice in this thread, I started eating bacon, sausage, and chicken drumsticks with the skin. I switched from olive oil to coconut oil, and I stopped buying skinless chicken breasts. I also reuse the bacon grease to cook the next meal. I haven't eaten any nuts in the last week.

    I started losing weight again! About 1.5 lbs in the last week. Thanks to all again for the advice.

    I'm a little concerned about eating bacon all the time though, are there any health issues with that due to the high salt content?

    I'd be more worried about the PUFA content. Are you getting pastured bacon or conventional?

    I found some marked "Gluten and Casein free" at Sprouts Farmers Market...it says its minimally processed, but I'll check the PUFA content when I get home
