Being stuck on a plateau has not been fun. This is the conclusion I have come to after extensive research and study on my weight/fat loss results. Carbs are killing my progress. So there are all kinds of debates arguments, strong opinions for opposing views. At this point I just don't care. I have had enough with what seems to me, to be an addiction to carbs. I start eating them and it is nearly impossible for me to meet my daily calorie deficit goals. So with some carefully placed guidelines, I have started a Cyclical Ketogenic Diet, used by many successful body builders. Honestly I can tell a difference already in my appetite. And I just started it today. It does not involve and extreme reduction in calories, but it is very low carb. Probably not for everyone and it is not as restrictive as the Atkins diet, but ya gotta do what ya gotta do. And for me cutting the carbs is what I gotta do, to get unstuck.

    I also do better with low carbs, it's almost impossible for me to lose unless I cut to at least only 20-50 carbs a day. We've missed your posts..Glad to see you back..

    thanks for your encouragement and I will definitely watch the carbs. I actually juice, water fasted for 13 days last summer, so I kind of know what to watch out for in the ways of side effects :) Thanks again emoticon

    Congrats! While cutting the carbs is fine, just make sure you do get enough. I cut carbs when I first started, and cut too low at one point. You do need them, I tend to stick with whole grains now.

    Good luck and keep up the good work emoticon
