Hello all, I've been having trouble losing weight lately, I'm 6' 245 pounds( use to be 289 lb.), so I'm at least 45 pounds overweight still. I exercise 3-4 days a week, cross training with a sandbag and suspension training, I eat a strict Primal/Paleo diet with the exception of a cheat here and there, I eat a lot of fat in the form of ghee, butter and coconut oil,and I think that could be sabotaging my weight loss, I would like to know if someone out there has experimented with low-none fat paleo and how does it improve weight loss. Thank you. Love

What are the exact details of what you eat & your exercise?

Are you currently losing fat? Fat loss per week? When I was fat (220, 6') and I switched to primal / no processed foods, I ate whatever I wanted (high fat) in whatever quantities I wanted, until I arrived at just under 200. At the that point, I had to be more careful about nuts.

Enough is enough. Yes calories matter & yes the laws of thermo always apply BUT. macros & food quality influence hormones and hormones drive fat gain or loss. Read Peter Attia and look at his data & results.

I believe it's a little more complex than that

Calories matter. Low fat-low carb is simply low calorie.

Hey man, a lot of stuff I have read by rob wolf indicates he believes low fat low carb moderate protein is best for already fat people.

I remember him talking about it on his podcast, basically his advice to one question was eat lean meat and veggies. However he also talks about high fat also working, but I think if your holding a good amount of fat, sticking to protein and veggies and lower carb and fat intake might be a possible way to eat.
