Weight Loss Slowdown

Is it possible...that I'm not eating enough protein? Since August 22nd, I've lost just 4 lbs. I don't understand why. I do not eat rice or pasta; two or three times a week I may have 1/2 a slice of toast (wheat or rye) with butter with over easy eggs, but any other carbs are negligible such as in nuts, cottage cheese, HWC, fruit two or three times a week, and so on. What do you think?

Here are my numbers for today. Please weigh in with your thoughts (yes, pun intended *grin* ):

  1. Trifecta: too few calories, too little protein, not enough fat.

    The first is the biggest problem right now. Up your calories by upping your protein (80-120 grams/day is a bare minimum, particularly during this early phase) and your fat (easy to do).

    Sometimes in the first year of most rapid weight loss, you *will* just stall before letting go of a chunk of weight as your body recalibrates.

  2. Thank you. That's the most solid advice I've received all week. Much obliged. Calculating adjustments...
