I have been reading almost every post on here that talks about losing the last 10lbs. And something occurred to me from a post from "Dragonfly"..
I have been eating high fat,low carb ( and i think way too much protein) and I am gaining not losing. So i'm going to try and switch things up..Here are my options, would love to see what everyone thinks is best : Letters are for Diet numbers are for exercise..
An answer could be A1 or B3...
27 yr, 5'9, 145 - Goal 135lbs ( I was 135 a few months ago but stress put 10lbs on.)
A) Stay high fat, low carb under 50g, but lower protein to under 100 grams per day
B) Go back to Low fat, carbs under 100g, moderate protein (say 1g per lb)
c) Incorporate fruit, for some extra energy, lean proteins, with a starch (sweet potato) Have NEVER tried this, I've been starch free for over a year
d) Change the kind of fats currently mostly coconut (so Sat) try focusing only on Avocados, fish oil, flax, pile oil etc..
e) Intermittent Fasting - which I am doing - only eat 12noon-8pm- but how to not stress the adrenals would be a great tip if you think this is best
f) longer fats - 24-48hrs?
Continue what I'm doing, morning fasted hour long walks on incline low intensity, with 2-3 times per week ending in full blast sprint intervals
HIIT (i have cortisol issues so this one seems tough) do short 12-15 min high intensity interval workouts a couple days a week
lift weights and walk
Yoga, or pilates, or jogging (something to change it up)
Couple extras :
If i want to go low fat, lowish carb. mod protein - how do i avoid snapping and bingeing like last time? can you eat low fat and still achieve satiation?
Again, i think by eating the high fat that i have been (because I don't have a lot of weight to lose, its too much fat and not using the last bit of fat from my body stores, is this accurate?)
Thanks for any fun input...
