I agree with you 100%
I've been known to drink cream
Too right. With cocoa sprinkles.
You can easily fit a thousand calories of cream into a glass. Not something I make a habit of doing, but I’m not shy. If I’m caught hungry or think that I will be, and I’m short of time in which to prepare a meal, half a glass of double cream and it’s job done.
I'll bare that in mind!
If your weight hasn't changed in months then you have reached homeostasis with your diet. You will have to modify it a little more to see more results either by cutting calories and carbs or exercising more. I have found that skipping meals will actually freak my body out and my blood sugar will rise. Really research what has carbs in it. When I cut out most carbs (you still need to enjoy some things) I lost 20kilos in 3 months and have been holding it ever since.
This is a fine point right here, I found that alternate day fasting helps much more. Going from OMAD some days to 16:8 most days on a LCHF diet really has been the instrument for getting me into the 16 stone category and still losing.
Also mighty great loss there Trevor! Well done!
Totally agree with this. The most recent talks that I have been watching do say that sorting out your insulin resistance/fatty liver are more important, and that many people don't actually lose much weight on low carb or keto. I'm in a very similar position myself but I am far more concerned about the health and function of my liver than my weight. I want to be healthy and make it into my 60s at least!
At 11 stone and 5’8 you are not overweight are you?
Im 11st 10, not particularly over weight would just like to lose a bit more.
Well, I'm on day 5 of intermittent fasting 18/6 and my fbg has been in the 5s, other readings in the 5s before food sometimes in the 6s after food. Feeling quite happy with that for now. Ive also lost 1lb, not a lot but its something so feeling happy all round.
Thanks for the advice onwards and downwards
Hi Starfish, Losing 1lb in 5 days after having plateaued is great, but you BG numbers are really great compared with where you were just a short time ago.
Way to go !
Some of us, including me, have to go carefully on our fat intake, even with low carbing, or we put on weight or stay the same.
