Welcome to the forums. It sounds as though you are doing well.
Just one tip: don’t skimp on calories. Even under low-insulin conditions, our body will hold on to stored fat if it thinks there is a famine going on. The solution is to give it an abundance of food, and to let it tell us when it has enough. It does this by regulating our appetite. Fat is a good source of calories, because it has almost no effect on insulin. Because it is very calorie-dense, it takes much less fat to satisfy us
My experience was that it took a couple of weeks of eating a large quantity of food at every meal, before my appetite suddenly dropped. (Insulin has to drop low enough for the appetite hormones to work properly.) But drop it did, and sixty pounds of fat vanished from my frame with no effort on my part. Nowadays I eat less, and also eat less often, because I am rarely hungry.
