No not eating way under, apparantly I am eating too little and im in starvation mode, hence my slow weight loss.
But surely eating lower calories I would have at least in the beginning lost more? Lost nothing Oct-Jan eating lower carb primal 2 meals a day, dropped carbs more and went higher fat, but lower cal in Jan.
Do I have 2 separate issues here. I am trying to understand what is going on.
What you said makes sense but I thought it was because of 12 years of up and down weight and mostly crap eating.
High insulin is meant to make it harder to lose weight. So if I am in starvation mode, how do the 2 go together. I hate that I don't understand!
How much more carb per day are you talking?
I found were mark said up to 100-150 g due to that.
Lost the link now.
So if its this, and not "real" high insulin. How come Oct-Jan I lost no weight, when the prior six months was a huge binge fest of all sorts of garbage? This part I don't get.

Well that is what the Dr suggests too, and what I thought. But the other idea sorta makes sense too.
Either way, do you think the drug he prescribed would help? I planned to continue eating how I am, but possibly less fat, so I am able to fit in more food, but am still unsure.
It might also be a matter of time. 12 years of bad eating vs 3 months good, it could be a while I guess.
