Default Trying low carb this time!

So, last time I experienced successful weight loss, I did WW, then a year or so later, tried it again, failed. For the last year, I had hit Starbucks pretty hard for frappuccinos, besides costing $25 a week, I realized all of the empty calories and carbs weren't doing me any favors. I quit them 2 weeks ago. I was going to do a keto diet, but I am unable to control my protein intake, and I am not getting enough fat.

I am going to buy some MCT oil today. I have been low carbing for 13 days, lost 4lbs. and no inches lost, been keeping kcals around 1300.

Any help with eating more fat, less protein? I do not drink coffee nor eat any type of seafood.

Hi there! I also quit Starbucks 2 weeks ago (coincidence?) ... ;-)

I want to let you know I was super-stalled until this past weekend I got the flu and couldn't stomach meat, so I loaded up on vegetables and fat (dairy, etc). Well I'm losing weight again... rapidly. Also, my hunger has gone way down. Definitely focus on keeping protein moderate (60-90-ish grams, depending on your height/weight) and meet your remaining calories with fat.

I'm a fat believer now! I believe the protein was stalling me.
