Some people are more sensitive and more prone to hormonal reactions and metabolic adaptations than others, and it sounds like you are one of the lucky ones
(join the club)
Youve been on a very low cal/low carb diet for 8 months and have pretty much completely stalled the past few months. Im afraid to say, the problem is your body has adapted to the amount of calories youre giving it, and fat loss is pretty much not going to happen for you.
Other people will chime in and say things like "change your workout routine, walk more, workout less, try interval training, stop working out all together"
Other people will say, "try changing your food choices, stop eating meat, only eat fish, add some more fat, switch from lettuce to spinach" etc, etc
Its not going to make any significant difference for you, im afraid.
On IP you eat approx 800-1000 cals/ day, right?
Youve been at it 8 months. Your body has, sadly learned to adapt to function off off 1000 cals/day. Iyoure not creating a deficit anymore, and your body is probably severly stressed out.
Metabolic adaptation occurs in many, sneaky, often unnoticed ways.
-Your resting HR will be lower (less cals are needed to beat more slowly)
-Your body temperature has probably dropped a degree or 2 (are you often cold?)
-Your hair/nails arent growing as well, possibly your hair is even falling out a little?
-digestion slows down (are you more sensitive to foods you werent sensitive to before? Bloating, diarreah, constipation and basic nutrient absorption in the intestines)
\-Reproduction may have completely shut down (are you still getting your period? is it as regular as before? does it come more often, less often, lighter, all those things)
Basically, simply, your body does not need to dip into fat stores anymore to make up the energy deficit. It is taking calories away from other, non-esential functioins to make up the difference in the deficit.
There are alot of things you can do to kind of reset your body, and get it back up to optimal functioning, but it ALL involves eating carbohydrates, eating ABOVE maintenance, and GAINING weight back. On purpose.
Google Leigh Peele, the Metabolic REPAIR Manual, and Metabolic Adaptation for more info on this subject matter, etc.....
Im afraid if you continue to eat so little with so few carbs, your just going to keep spinning your wheels.
