Hey PM, I totally know what you mean, and feel your pain. My advice is to forget weight loss: it's going to happen, it's inevitable. There may be nothing for a while on the scales, or by the measuring tape, but our bodies may be doing funny things inside to prepare to start releasing it's fat stores. One example: you could be retaining water and putting on muscle, which would mean no apparent physical changes.
If it's any consolation, since I stopped "eating a ton" my weight hasn't changed, and my measurements have been going up and down. But - something is happening to my body, because I am making huge gains in strength and flexibility. I have the feeling that there's a whoosh ahead for both of us Be patient. What's that thing they say in Astanga?
"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
