its interesting to me, to see how the 'fear the fat" mentality is slowly seeping back into LCHF/Keto diets, coinciding with the fear of “too little protein” creeps up as well
almost no one (except maybe vegans) in the western world is eating too little protein. maybe poor sources, but not too little.
the CICO mentality is coming back, mainly due to ketogains and Ted Naiman, and to a lesser extent the ZC celebs, and to a lesser degree even Agostino.
we are to believe that hormones matter, except when you need to lose weight then you better count those fat calories! (or else you won’t lose the fat on your body). this is almost NO ONEs personal experience. There is no such thing as a stall in the long term, its just people get frustrated when they lose 80 pounds in 6 months, then its “stalled”.
stalls are more likely due to micromanaging your weight by looking at the scale too often. throw it away.
Fat doesn’t make you fat. It is very hard to over eat fat, the satiety comes soon, and digestive distress follows if you don’t listen to your body.
Protein is not satiating. I best most of us could easily eat 3 to 4 chicken breasts, try to eat 2 large avocados.
lack of protein is a hunger driver for sure, but its not satiating in the traditional sense. if it was you could throw back whey powder all day long and be the thinnest person on the block.
