How much weight have you been trying to lose....I notice that youve only been on the diet for 11 months.
I have lost about 15 kilos and started with the diet first for 12 months to get my eating right (Mark's Primal) and then have only been exercising for the last 6 months. It is only now that I am starting to see a change in my shape.
So be patient..........
Maybe it is just taking time for your body to adjust.
My heavy lifting is weight lifting 2ce a week using conventional weights and I also use the TRX system (using my own body weight for resistance) a couple of times a week also--this is mostly for core and balance.
I'm thinking what held me back from being completely fat-burning prior to my attempt at leptin reset was the fruit. Looking back at my food journals I see that almost all 100 grams of carbs came from fruit.
From what I understand, real, visible body composition changes actually take a lot longer than most people realize. Even my boyfriend, back in the early 80s, saw it took him about a year to make a visible change to his body composition with a daily bicycle commute over 20 miles plus weight machines at the gym. He was not a fat person at the time, either, and never has been.

I hope you get back in a couple weeks or so and follow up. Its sounds like the constant sugar from fruit might be the culprit. Another thing that doesnt get enough play is the DHA/EPA O3/O6 ratio.The only other thing I would recommend is pushing your heavy lifting so you get to or near DOMS. True body recompostion can only happen with a good amount of lean muscle mass.
