I've given up smoking, diet soda, aspartame, splenda, msg, anything processed, sugar, grains and potatoes/legumes.
I'm eating mostly fat, protein and veggie carbs. Most days my ratios are 70% fat, 20% protein, 10% carb, again mostly from vegetables and little dairy. I like string cheese from time to time.
I feel like my body is shrinking a bit, noticeable in the fit of clothes, but NOTHING on the scale. I've been eating as above for three weeks. I've done low carb many times before and am okay with slow loss, but NONE after three weeks is not motivating me at all!
I feel better, sleep better, have more stable moods, etc. and I know these are all great things, but I do need to lose about 50lbs.
I can only think I'm eating too many vegetables. I love kale, I mean really love it. I eat it a lot, usually saute style with butter and fresh garlic. I have been eating spaghetti squash about once or twice a week too.
Do you think I'll eventually lose, while eating plenty of above ground veggies, meat and fat? I am eating nothing fake or phony, no sugar, no hidden starch...
I just want more veggies, need them to be happy eating this way.
