    Isn't "Paleo baking" all nut flours?
    What is your fat gram intake?
    5'0" female, 43 years old. Started Primal October 31, 2011, at a skinny fat 111.5 lbs. Low weight: 99.5 lb on a fast. Current weight: skinny-fat 106.5 lbs because of sugar cheating.

    MY PRIMAL: I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I aim for 80-90 g carb/day and advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and other need to tweak Primal to their own needs.

    Kiwigal,

    If you want to drop some more body fat, I would give up dairy for a while. The dairy protein is highly insulinogenic (is that a real word ?). Moreover, ketosis does not necessarily bring fat loss, it depends. Peter Attia had a recent article about it at eatingacademy.com Body fat loss is a metabolic state that means that your body "thinks" it must tap into the fat stores. When you suddenly drop carbs after a lifestyle of high carb eating, you naturally eliminate a lot of pseudo-toxic-foods (aka processed foods full of refined sugar, weird chemicals, inflammatory fat or omega-6 PUFAs, denatured proteins and peptides like gluten or beta-casein, etc). Your body will change metabolic state and your chronic level of inflammation will drop, fat loss will ensue. But once it reaches a new balance eventually (can take months), why would it drop some more body fat ? Body fat is useful for low food intake periods or even starvation. The body does not want to lose it. If you have access to food every day, and eat without shaking off your metabolism in some way (kicking the carbs to start with, ramping up good carbs and kicking most of the fat afterwards, taking on weight-lifting, whatever), you will stay in that balance. Look at bodybuilders, their leanness is not natural at all, they go to extremes to shake their metabolism so that their body fat is being burnt away. They don't care about low fat high carb or vice-versa, they care about low body fat and tons of muscle mass. It is an "art" to achieve that and the key is to shake the metabolic balance regularly for specific results. In your case, you have to do the same: if VLC is not working any longer, switch things around: up the carbs, decrease the fat and always stick to real foods. Nurture your gut as well (prebiotics and probiotics).

    Nut flours are the worst to use cause they are high in heated Omega 6 fats. Better to use coconut, rice/potato, cheese, cauliflower etc. bases.
