I doubt it. It is a myth. The metabolic slowdown that comes along with reducing calories is never greater than the calorie reduction. If she isn't losing weight, it's because she is eating too much relative to her activity level.

I would hold the course for another week. Weight loss is a series of "wooshes" because after awhile, you'll start retaining water. You'll still be losing fat but water weight will increase for awhile. Eventually, it'll pop and "woosh" out of you and suddenly you'll be down 2-3 pounds out of nowhere. But if you don't see anything after another week - that makes 3 weeks total - it probably is a real stall. At that point, you'll either have to eat less or start moving around more.
Looking at your post, all I can think of is "Dude, where's my protein?" A breakfast of all that eggs and bacon is around 75% calories from fat, and you won't lose a drop of body fat until you burn through all those fat calories first. I would replace that bacon with something leaner, or halve the quantity and go from there. And what about exercise? Some weight lifting and mild cardio will go miles to help you.
Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.
