    Hi
    I was wondering if anyone out there can help me lose more weight with regards to the LCHF I seem to have come to a standstill, I have currently lost 10lbs and it's taken me approx six weeks. But i cannot seem to budge no more than the 10lbs. I am using a treadmill but slowly weening into it, as i have not done any exercise for some time. I am watching my carb intake but must confess im not weighing everything or measuring everything. could this be my problem ? or doesn't it matter.

    Some much appreciated help would make me soooo happy :)

    Thanks.

    I found this video a good way of explaining it
    For me, the more carbs we eat the more carbs we want. They don’t give up easy and it’s biochemical



    I think this is what you are looking for.

    Hi Debs71

    Would help to know what a typical days diet looks like as well as whether you have a little or a lot to lose :) You may also have more luck if you post your question in the Low Carb Diet section.

    Cheers
