I just finished reading Low Carbohydrat Performance, Jimmy Moore's n=1 blog, and Atkins' advice on breaking a stall. They advocate further reducing carbs, moderating protein, and increasing fat. So now
I'm doing: 68.3% calories from fat
23% from protein
8.7 % carbs
1,450 calories max
Has anyone out there done this sort of thing ? If so, what were your results ?
I have been going through the same thing and have done a ton of reading in the past few days with this. I lost 45 pounds last year on low carb and have regained 15 of that.
I started with VOLEK & Phinney The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living.
That led me to Jimmy Moore's blog which led me to Jenny Ruhl and her book Diet 101
She suggests monitoring your blood sugar as if you are diabetic and I am not doing that. But she has a calculator on her site that gives you guidelines if you put in your info. I found that very handy.
I am just starting to follow the numbers today and will see how it goes.
