I've shed (and maintained) about a 30lb loss for the last 5 or so years. However, I still have about 5ish pounds of body fat hanging around that won't budge. I'm 5'2", about 22% body fat at 114 lbs.
My initial weight loss was extremely sloooowwww, I suspect because I had a lot of damage from gluten etc to heal from. My excess body fat is mainly around my middle, with some in the usual lady spots (bum, thighs)
Currently the way I eat is more 'primal' that 'paleo' as I am including some dairy. I've eaten no-dairy, super high fat, VLC, ZC, IF, you name it. (I IF naturally all the time) Am I correct in thinking that at this point, the key to leaning out further is exercise? I am not very active. Ok... I am about as active as a tree sloth.
