    Although a little slow to the table... sorry about that... I would advocate doing a period of rapid weight loss using fasting mechanisms and then follow it up with a low carb (not necessarily very low carb). If you have a meter you can match the amount and types of carbs to what your body is capable of handling. The reason I suggest fasting (ND is a form but so is 5:2 and your milk) is that there is evidence that it has beneficial properties in helping the body recover.

    That works for me too ,@andcol. Lose weight when I fast or use very low calorie diet methods. Maintain loss and good BG levels by low carb, with enough fat. Can't cope with high levels of fat due to having no gall bladder and other digestive system problems. I have to restrict cream, cheese, fat from meat, oil , but nuts and full fat yogurt and milk, and avocado suit me fine.
    Individual differences and circumstances need to be considered. Only way to find out is to try and note results.
