I realized that. However I have helped many people who ate a very low calorie ketogenic diet and had the results I spoke of. Carb or fat burning with extreme calorie restriction on the level of slow starvation brings the exact same results. I have given several women here the advice I just gave you, some who came here from years of yo-yo dieting, they were so used to calorie restriction they felt guilty eating sufficient fat, protein and generally KETO friendly foods. And all of them had improvement in weight loss by eating more and upping fat intake. I’m just saying if you keep stalling with your current regimen try my suggestion for a week and see what happens. The further your BMR drops the more time it will take to recover. Under eating is a big problem whether it’s LCHF or LFHC. In this case the fuel doesn’t make a lot of difference except you’ll be more miserable and hangry on a LFHC diet because KETO does cause some natural appetite suppression.
I was eating about 1400-1500 kcals per day for months. Never hungry and very satisfied on a TMAD IF routine. Eventually I stalled for over 8 weeks bouncing up and down 2 lbs. once I abandoned macro calculations of the amount of kcals allowed (ignore that info) and increased my average to 1800-2400 kcals daily (had to get creative and intentionally eat more fats) dependent on my appetite I started to drop again and in a few months lost another 20 lbs eating more. I started advising some of my friends here who were also stalled long term with what worked for me and I believe that all of them got the same result. Certain foods can also be an issue and I also gave up regular consumption of HWC and stopped buying nuts. After rereading your initial post I thought it wise to tell you to be careful with Brazil Nut consumption. One nut contains the full RDA for selenium. Selenium is essential for cardiac health but too much everyday can lead to some toxicity with selenium. I used to eat them but stopped because I eat plenty of red meat and get all the selenium I need with that, 250% of the RDA from my meat consumption alone on a one week averaged.
