I’m not convinced. When I cut out sugar and starches a little over a year ago, I dropped 10 kg in the space of 3 months. I ate as much as I felt like eating. If anything, I’m better at noticing when my body is ready to stop eating now than I was then.
It makes very little sense that I’m gaining weight whilst following an even stricter diet than a year ago. I don’t eat fruit except for berries, for instance. Back then, I ate loads of almond butter; no more.
The only dietary sources I can think of that have changed in the past few weeks: I’ve eaten macadamias twice, I’ve had strawberries with heavy whipping cream 3 times, and I’ve been eating cheese and cream cheese.
I’m going to keep doing what I’m doing for another week and see what happens, and I’m actively reducing the aforementioned culprits in the meantime.
