Default 5 pound bounce

Iíve been in a 5 pound bounce for the last couple of months. I canít get below 255 and stay below it. I lost about 25-30 over the last 6 months and now itís like Iím at a plateau but not. Iíll sometimes dip to 252 and then Iím jumping up to 257. If it creeped up any further I know Iíd be in trouble. But, it always goes back down and I feel ďsafeĒ again.

My weight loss was made possible by a low carb diet (not keto) and specific food elimination.

Any suggestions on what I can do to get me past this hump?

Maybe try eating more carbs? Vegetables, fruits, legumes, and whole grains are healthy, and good for weight loss, and all of them are high in carbs.

Are you eating any healthy fats (from foods like nuts, seeds, or avocado)?

I find I get headaches when I eat carbs now. So I probably wonít be adding that back into my diet, except in limited quantities.

I could definitely add more healthy fats. Avocados are super expensive right now, but you gotta spend money to make money, they say.
