Height: 5'5

Default 40 days and 5 pounds

I have to say that the LCHF thing isn't working out as I had hoped. I exercise 4 times a week, keeping calories under 1400 a day, protein might be higher than fat, it's hard to keep protein down, fat up. I have given up bread, which smells terrible to me now, and caramel frappuccinos for 40+ days, and only 5 lbs lost, wth? Do I have to give up dairy and nuts? I can't do ketosis, 20 carbs or less leaves me looking like the crypt keeper. I am looking into the set point theory, am I there? Really bummed.

You shouldn't give up nuts (assuming they're pure nuts with nothing added), especially if you're doing a high fat diet, because nuts are a healthy source of fat.

Dairy: Plain greek yogurt is healthy. Some cheeses are high in saturated fat, so don't eat too much. Milk has more sugar (about 12g), but I think 1 or 2 cups a day won't hurt you.

If you post a full list of what you eat, I might be able to give you more advice, but 5 lbs in 40 days isn't bad.

What type of exercise do you do?

I started on March 17, and by March 27, I had lost 21 pounds. Yes, eat saturated fat! The "fat" in HF/LC is often saturated fat.

Giselley, what did you eat in a day that you could lose so quickly like that?
