You might try skipping the banana and almond flour muffin. If you're really hungry, have an egg (and that's a great true hunger test. Think you're hungry? Well, how does a hard boiled egg sound? If it doesn't sound appealing, you're not really hungry, most likely. If it does sound appealing, eat one!)
    Yes, I totally agree with you. I actually tried this for 2-3 weeks and did not work. I know crazy!?

    Try alternate day fasting( see thread) it's the only thing that worked for me to get the scale moving again! Good luck!

    Don't sound like you are that far off at 5' 4" and 165 lb.
    Maybe you need to reassess your body image perceptions.

    Eat healthy, relax your mind and let your body find it's perfect place.
