So I have been playing with gut flora for a while now, with some good early signs of success. I went primal two years ago (I am about 99/01 in terms of strictness). I lost 10 kg fast and then plateaued. For over a year. I was stuck at 90kg, no matter what I did.
I get 8 - 10 hours of sleep every night. Maybe once every four or five months I get less than 8 hours.
I started working out. Lifting heavy things (put on nice muscle), sprint, and average around 16km a week walked. I stayed stuck at 90 kg.
So I started playing with fats and carbohydrates to figure out if that made a difference. Stayed at 90 kg.
Started intermittent fasting, to see if that would help (which I still do). Stayed at 90 kg.
Started counting calories. Tried lowering to 2500 calories a day for 6 weeks. Stayed at 90 kg. Tried lowering to 2000 calories a day for 6 weeks. Stayed at 90 kg. Tried increasing to 2500 calories a week. Stayed at 90 kg.
So now the only thing left I can think of is gut flora. Gonna go to town trying to feed the good gut flora, and inhibit growth of the bad gut flora. I'm stuck wearing 34" dress pants, and I want to make it to a comfortable 31" or 32" pair of pants.
