We’ve all run into those times during our healthy low-carb lifestyle when the weight loss just doesn’t want to cooperate with us despite doing everything the same as we always have when weight loss has happened before. Have you seen any successful methods for women wanting to lose weight in their abdomen after multiple pregnancies? My question pertains to tweaking the low-carb diet to work for a complete and total screwed up enigma…me!
I am a 33 year-old female with Type 1 diabetes and Hashimoto’s with normal thyroid panels.
What other approaches would you suggest for obese people who do not seem to lose any weight despite keeping calories low along with their high-fat, moderate protein, low-carb diet with regular exercise? Is it better to split up your protein intake on a low-carb over several meals throughout the day to prevent gluconeogenesis from creating too much glucose in the body that could stall weight loss?
I eat a handful each of almonds, walnuts, cashew nuts, flax seeds and Brazil nuts everyday.
My husband and I have been on low-carb for the past six weeks, but we’re not seeing any good results so far. I’m a 50-year old woman (5’8” and 215 pounds) who has been on the low-carb lifestyle for over a decade.
If you’re eating a well-formulated low-carb diet where carbohydrates are less than 20g, protein is 85g or less and fat consists of at least 65% of calories, how is it possible to experience voracious hunger?
I’m a competitive bike racer and putting on a few extra pounds led me start on a low-carb Paleo diet. Have you seen any correlation between high blood ketone levels, normal blood sugar levels and weight loss? I am a relatively new convert to low-carb after having spent the last 25 years of my life as a low-fat, high-carb eating running machine.
Is it possible that after being on a low-carb lifestyle for several years that your body can become resistant to weight loss?
Do you have any suggestions for women in the midst of hot flash season during menopause with rebooting weight loss? I’m a 53-year-old menopausal women who has recently found that eating low-carb is not working as well for me as it previously has. Thanks for your response, he is not in my area but you gave me the idea to ask him about low-carb friendly doctors, maybe he can make a list just like you have.I thought that was a great idea of you Jimmy because it is so hard to find a doctor that actually listen to you.
And like Dr Phinney said it can be a lot of underling issues with hormones, inflammation etc that causes stalls.

On November 13th 2014, the ABC program Catalyst explored the science behind the low carbohydrate diet – what are the health benefits and are there any risks? In the 1970s we were indoctrinated into the food pyramid – reduce the fats and increase the carbohydrates.
In 2014 the message has been reversed; instead of reducing fat we are being asked to reduce the carbohydrates in our diet.
Many experts contend that eating the sugar in carbohydrates has greatly contributed to the obesity epidemic as carbohydrates stimulate the hormone insulin, which increases the bodys fat stores. However, the low carbohydrate diet needs to be a case of balance – individuals need enough protein to sustain their muscle mass as well as preventing hunger  as protein reduces cravings allowing you to feel fuller for longer.
Carbohydrate intolerance in individuals is associated with some physical attributes such as fat being carried around their middle.
Professor Tim Noakes a low carbohydrate diet advocate quoted on Catalyst, believes that humans have absolutely no requirement for carbohydrates, however the essential fats and essential proteins which we cannot generate in our body we need to get from our diets. A very extreme low carbohydrate diet appears to be quite restrictive – it cuts out a lot of foods, particularly a lot of whole grain foods and fruit. For athletes attempting prolonged endurance activity, their body needs to be trained to use fat as the predominant fuel; it has been found that that fuel tank is more than ten times as big as the carbohydrate tank. Low carbohydrate diet advocates have viewed evidence that once the event lasts two or three hours, there is little advantage to carbohydrates. It’s all about the good fats like coconut oils, extra virgin olive oils, flaxseed oil, cheese, eggs,  fatty meats, even butter (not margarine!). One of the concerns is that the low carbohydrate diet is high in saturated fat which we’re told raises cholesterol and causes heart disease. A critical review of the literature suggested that low carbohydrate diets should be the first treatment option in Type II diabetes because of the consistently good control of blood glucose and the reduction, or elimination, of diabetes medication. Interestingly Diabetes Australia currently recommend low fat meals based on high fibre carbohydrate foods like breads and cereals, the very foods that raise blood sugar levels.
What is important is that a low carbohydrate diet should be initiated and supervised by practitioners familiar with the diet to ensure the process is relevant for the individual. The important distinction here is that Catalyst explored the low carbohydrate diet NOT the high protein diet!
When you eat fat, you get essentially no insulin response, when you eat protein  you get a moderate response and when you eat carbohydrates, you get relatively higher responses.
If you think the low carbohydrate diet may assist your health concerns, talk to a qualified practitioner before starting to make sure it is right for you.

I am a New Zealand registered nurse and nutritionist (Grad Cert Sci: nutrition, Massey Univ). This study was in the news today, I just had to post it – because it is very interesting. Having carbohydrates with breakfast suppressed grehlin far more, is this a key to appetite control and eating less for the rest of the day? They key is to indulge in the morning, when the body’s metabolism is at its most active and we are better able to work off the extra calories throughout the day, say Prof.
Attempting to avoid sweets entirely can create a psychological addiction to these same foods in the long-term, explains Prof.
Basing their study on this fact, the researchers hoped to determine whether meal time and composition impacted weight loss in the short and long term, says Prof. One hundred and ninety three clinically obese, non-diabetic adults were randomly assigned to one of two diet groups with identical caloric intake — the men consumed 1600 calories per day and the women 1400. One of the biggest challenges that people face is keeping weight off in the long-term, says Prof. Ultimately, this shows that a diet must be realistic to be adopted as part of a new lifestyle. Although dietary restriction often results in initial weight loss, the majority of obese dieters fail to maintain their reduced weight. A high carbohydrate and protein breakfast may prevent weight regain by reducing diet-induced compensatory changes in hunger, cravings and ghrelin suppression.
I noticed years ago that whenever I went very low carb, and tried to stick to it, I inevitably ended up with cravings for sweet things.
Would be great if people could finally acknowledge that there is not one right answer to this qn, otherwise one would have found it already – it all depends on the context.
With regards to paleo being carb free, while I acknowledge many people think that, paleo is actually carb agnostic. Interesting article and very different to Poloquin’s take on a meat and nut breakfast. Men were instructed to consume 1600 kcal while women were instructed to consume 1400 kcal daily.
Researchers set out to answer this age-old debate: Are low-fat diets any better than all the rest?
There has been reams of research on the subject and the researchers analyzed 53 studies that compared the amount of weight that people had lost one year or more after starting various diets. Generally, study participants on a low-fat diet got less than 30% (and sometimes only 10%) of calories from fat. The main verdict was that there was no difference in weight loss between low-fat and high-fat diets. The studies that Tobias and her colleagues analyzed used interventions that ranged from giving participants pamphlets describing the diets they should start to ongoing counseling and providing food. The researchers’ conclusion to focus on dietary patterns jives with the recent report by the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee, which for the first time suggested a range of types of diets for optimal health (and reduced environmental impact), rather than any one single diet. Although the committee’s report in some ways also marked an exoneration for fat, it still recommended limiting saturated fat to 10% of daily calories and opting for low-fat and no-fat dairy options. The study found that the median amount of weight lost for all the diets after a year or more was about 8.5 pounds.

A recent study reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that weight loss results from low carb and low fat diets were similar after one year. National physical activity experts report that workers today are burning an average of 120 to 140 fewer calories a day than workers in the 1960s.
Your body can absorb the nutrients in the food more readily, since it is broken down better. A British study shows taking a short, brisk walk can reduce the amount of snacking you do at work.
February is Heart Health Month, which makes it a great time for individuals to evaluate their lifestyle and how it may be contributing to or harming their heart’s wellbeing.
We Minnesotans are used to the snow and cold of winter, but this season has seemed especially brutal, hasn't it? The below-zero windchills and heavy snow make it feel easier to stay indoors and eat at our desk than to go out or go home for lunch.
Dieting can be frustrating when the scale is not showing a decrease in pounds or the weight is not staying off. Here's another great OPTIFAST success story!In her late twenties, Elizabeth began taking a new medication which caused her to rapidly gain weight. Researchers have found that people who are overweight have an increased risk of loss in brain volume, which could translate to decreased mental function later in life. If you need a little extra help keeping track of your daily food intake and planning meals, we have some technology suggestions that can help! The habit of snacking appears to be more common now than several decades ago, and it could be affecting people's waistlines. A study found that if you are over the age of 35, drinking two cups of water before every meal is an effective weight management tool. You may have heard in the news recently that the American Medical Association designated obesity as a disease. Patients and friends have been telling me about using these "milks" for their morning shakes.
Are you noshing at lunch in front of your computer?  It is interesting to note that, people who eat lunch at in front of a computer are likely to eat more within 30 minutes vs. Join us this Saturday to discuss the different strategies about what to do in those tough scenarios like eating out whether you are on full fast or modified fast. Whenever I consume some carbohydrates one hour before my workouts my performance seems to get better. But whenever I return to low-carb again I tend to lose weight quickly in about month which is great.

Is a temporary or permanent change in their diet and exercise routine necessary to return to a normal weight again? I still have about 15-20 pounds to reach my goal and I’ve been hovering at around 134 pounds for the past six months. About eight months into my new way of eating, my CrossFit coaches encouraged me to reintroduce 16 ounces of milk and sweet potatoes post-workout. Is it correct to assume that the body will only make as much glucose as it needs or will it make an excessive amount of glucose if too much protein is consumed?
What other biological factors besides insulin resistance can prevent weight loss from happening? I’m trying to lose about 10 pounds and I eat a super-clean Paleo diet with zero processed food or anything with a label.
I started gaining weight in 2007 and put on 65 pounds by 2011 even on a very low-carb diet. I seem to stall out two weeks a month due to hormones and then lose weight for only two weeks. I converted to a low-carb diet 8 months ago because I’m a 52-year old woman who has seen my weight “creep up” slowly but surely mostly in my thighs and buttocks with the same amount of exercise in recent years. I have been doing some form of low-carb diet plan for more than seven years and I’m completely stalled at a good 20-30 pounds above my goal. I’ve had low iron levels for 12 years and was recently diagnosed with iron deficient anemia. I’m consistently in ketosis according to the urine test sticks but I only experience very, very moderate weight loss. It started earlier this summer when I noticed that although my weight has been remaining fairly stable, I am actually adding body fat around my belly and back. Phinney about his recent work at Western States 100 and the fact that a low-carber, Tim Olson won. If my daily need of protein is 70 g I would understand that I lose this 70 g max, but 2000 g?! Did our ancestors, with low inflammation, not experience menopause, PMS, endo, or other fertility issues? When my adrenal fatigue was at its worst, I had flatline cortisol, the worst PMS ever and my thyroid numbers were less than optimal. I think that’s very important for women to hear, as the focus is always on the scale. Would you please explain a little about what you meant by “I resolved the adrenal issues”?
Phinney on this because there is no science backing up the claim of thyroid issues with low-carb diets.
Phinney and Volek, I had some topics which I struggled to understand, some of these issues where solved by this podcast.
Consequently people ate less fat and replaced it with a lot of processed sugar rich carbohydrates. However if you are eating carbohydrates every three hours in an ever constant effort to feel full, then you consistently have an elevated insulin concentration in your blood. However when you eat protein, you get a moderate response and when you eat carbohydrates, you get a relatively higher response again. There is no black and white answer to this as the optimal level of dietary carbohydrates will depend on how well an individuals body processes them – some people metabolise them better than others. It is associated in people with a strong family history of Type II diabetes, pre-diabetes or metabolic syndrome, people who are severely overweight and other conditions such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) in women who may not be overweight or diabetic but are very responsive to carbohydrate restriction. These are really good healthy foods that we know reduce the long-term risk of chronic disease. But when people become more insulin resistant, they have a difficult time processing these carbohydrates.
They indicated that carbohydrates can be of some use in explosive athletic events (think 100 metre sprint or 50 metre freestyle) when you need a fast fuel source. That’s why nutrition experts specialising in the low carbohydrate diet are seeing the ultra-endurance athletes not just winning races but setting records on low carbohydrate diets.
However what is known is that saturated fat is not as bad for you as we once thought and can be a great source of energy.
It will remain to be seen if the current research will be reflected in Diabetes Australias future recommendations. The low carbohydrate  diet is rich in quality fats, nuts, fibrous fruits, vegetables and meats. I am a Certified Zone Instructor, and have worked teaching Zone diet principles to hundreds of clients over the last 10 years.
Now, in a surprising discovery, researchers from Tel Aviv University have found that dessert, as part of a balanced 600-calorie breakfast that also includes proteins and carbohydrates, can help dieters to lose more weight — and keep it off in the long run. And breakfast is the meal that most successfully regulates ghrelin, the hormone that increases hunger, explains Prof. However, the first group was given a low carbohydrate diet including a small 300 calorie breakfast, and the second was given a 600 calorie breakfast high in protein and carbohydrates, always including a dessert item (i.e. Meal timing and composition influence ghrelin levels, appetite scores and weight loss maintenance in overweight and obese adults.
Diet-induced weight loss results in compensatory increase of hunger, craving and decreased ghrelin suppression that encourage weight regain.
To achieve long-term weight loss, meal timing and macronutrient composition must counteract these compensatory mechanisms which encourage weight regain after weight loss. I’ll post more when I get access to it – unless anyone else out there has a full copy? I have tried low carb Paleo for the past 12 months, but particularly with struggling with stress and burnout, have felt sugar and refined carb cravings more intensely.
In a weight-loss contest between a low-fat diet and high-fat or low-carbohydrate diets, who would come out on top?
The commons types include low-fat diets, such as the popular high-carb diet developed by Dr. Those on high-fat and low-carb diets usually got at least 30% (and sometimes more than 60%) of calories from fat and less than 10% from carbs.
It was not clear, however, how well participants in the studies adhered to the various interventions, and that should be addressed in future research, Tobias said. These recommendations were not created with the goal of helping people lose weight but to promote better health, Tobias said. Hall, senior investigator at the National Institutes of Health National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases. The poor result is probably because many people fall off the wagon with dieting after about six or eight months, Hall said. There is a small percentage of people who have achieved substantial long-term weight loss through dieting.

Be mindful, though, that eating your lunch at your desk can have negative consequences for your diet.When we eat at our desks, we are often distracted by email, phone calls and other interruptions. They claim this forces the body to use its fat reserves for fuel instead of the carbohydrates quickly available from a pre-workout meal or snack. Focus instead on getting a much more manageable 30 minutes of exercise, five times per week. The problem is that we consume most of our protein at dinner time when we should be eating the most protein during breakfast to start off our day.
The study included a control group, a group of subjects who ate three high-protein meals each day, and a third group who ate high-protein meals six times a day.
We have all been in that situation where we have been invited out to go celebrate a birthday party, anniversary, you name it. Maybe I should be eating more carbs and slightly less fat but I know I’ll be starving doing that.
But after about another month or so I tend to return to my old eating patterns and put on even more weight–and so the cycle continues.
I have struggled with my weight all my life and have seen success following the Richard Simmons Deal-A-Meal and Weight Watchers plans in the past. Or will it only make as much glucose as is needed and convert the rest of the excess protein into fat?
I’ve tried increasing or decreasing each of the three macronutrients at different times for at least two weeks at a time to see what works. Unfortunately, I’ve been in a holding pattern for nearly two years despite attempting several strategies including the leptin reset, intermittent fasting, the Atkins fat fast, calorie cycling and most recently decreasing protein and upping my dietary fat intake. If you have a cheat day or a higher carb meal such as a pizza and a couple of beers for example weekly, will that take you out of keto-adaption and cause you to start over for 2-4 weeks every time you do it? Even though I have lost a significant amount of weight before, I always seem to return to the initial weight that I started out with. I have been trying to lose 80 pounds since February 2012 and have only lost a little over 25 pounds so far. I’ve been lucky my whole life to have been thin and active but noticed as I got in my upper 40s that I was putting on weight.
I know it was off-topic, but it is truly the most important low-carb news we have heard in years!
Like the specialist I am going to now for my thyroid as long as my lab work looks good she doesn’t really care about anything else.
My theory is those of us who start low-carbing come into it with some impaired thyroid function to begin with. After much research and self examination, I think that my problems may have came from ultra low fat and low calorie diets. Processed foods are full of carbohydrates because when manufacturers took the fat out of food, they took the flavour out and replaced it with sugar. When this occurs excess carbohydrate is forced into the fat cells and the fat cells now cannot release the fat which the  brain interprets this as being starved. The low carbohydrate diet explored on Catalyst is therefore not a high protein diet as proponents don’t want all that moderate insulin secretion from a high protein intake.
You can burn an enormous amount of fat if you’re an elite athlete but you have to become fat-adapted. If the amount of carbohydrates in their diets were reduced, there could be a massive and positive impact on reducing Type II diabetes.
But for those individuals who have a hard time metabolising carbohydrates such as those with insulin resistance, Type II diabetes, PCOS, are obese or even for endurance athletes the low carbohydrate diet could provide a proven method of controlling blood glucose and act as as a fuel source.
More recently after finding that eating Paleo food choices was the "icing on the cake" health wise, I have become a Paleo enthusiast and teacher. Cake at breakfast with protein led to greater weight loss, significantly more over the long-term for clinically obese people, in a 32 week study. Ghrelin suppression after breakfast meal challenge at baseline, Week 16 and Week 32 by diet intervention group. A high protein and carbohydrate breakfast may overcome these compensatory changes and prevent obesity relapse. Fasting glucose, insulin, ghrelin, lipids, craving scores and breakfast meal challenge assessing hunger, satiety, insulin and ghrelin responses, were performed at baseline, after a Diet Intervention Period (Week 16) and after a Follow-up Period (Week 32). A bit of sweet food or starch sometimes, not necessarily every meal made all the difference at keeping my appetite better regulated.

This is usually when I have fruit with protein – which as you point out is probably the best time to have fruit if one eats it. The “dessert” was a sweet food selected from the following list: chocolate, cookies, cake, ice cream, chocolate mousse or donuts. In order to maintain daily energy intake constant, the dinner in the HCPb was reduced from 600 to 300 kcals for women and from 700 to 400 kcals for men (Table 1). But the difference was small and the researchers did not think it would lead to any meaningful health benefits.

The review found that consuming dairy products was related to increased insulin production, a healthier body weight and decreased body fat. The carbohydrate is partly from lactose (milk sugar), which is digested differently than sucrose. My average daily intake consists of about 60-80g fat, less than 100g carb and 150g protein a day. At the age of 35, I decided to become an amateur bodybuilder over a four-year period that had me on a calorie-restricted, high-protein, low-carb, zero fat diet. I have been told by my personal trainer that our bodies have a difficult time converting protein to fat.
My days my carb intakes stays at 30g or less and I believe my diet is ketogenic because I’m not eating more than moderate levels of protein. What can I do to kick my ketone levels up higher so I can lose weight more steadily even through my menstrual cycle?
For me, increasing protein seems to work best but it is temporary in keeping my hunger under control. I walk everyday for exercise and I’ve actually regained about six pounds in the past 6 months. My question is this: how much do you think peri-menopause and the hormonal changes that go with that play a part in fat gain? Several years ago, I tried the South Beach diet after a friend had success on Atkins (I was too afraid of eating that much fat to try it).

These include irregular sleep patterns and unhealthful diets in addition to extended periods of inactivity. This week’s expert guest is here to help you circumnavigate through what might be happening to help you get on the right track again.
Do you think I should start from scratch with two weeks of a well-formulated low-carb ketogenic diet? My coach put me on fat burners, diuretics and low-dose anabolic drugs for short periods of time.
But in two years of low-carb eating, my weight has not changed at all and my body composition has not seemed to change either. I lost 31 pounds over a 10-week period and my blood sugars returned to normal for about 3 weeks after doing this.
Or is it natural for women to get kicked out of ketosis during this time that will obviously stall their weight loss progress? Nothing seems to help for more than a week or two before the hunger bug comes on with a vengeance.
Everything I’ve heard says the LAST thing a woman at this stage in her life should do is diet since the fat cells are genetically programmed to hang on to their fat in order to manufacture more estrogen to replace that which is not coming from the ovaries anymore.
Is it possible to reprogram the body to be comfortable at a new weight and make it stop trying to gain back the pounds?
We raise our own grass-finished cows, chickens and I eat tons of butter and other sources of fat. This goes part of the way in explaining why you get repetitive eating behaviour in people who are eating too many carbohydrates.
Ketones are produced when fat is being burnt for energy and can be measured in the blood or urine. Highly restrictive diets that forbid desserts and carbohydrates are initially effective, but often cause dieters to stray from their food plans as a result of withdrawal-like symptoms.
Satiety was significantly improved and hunger and craving scores significantly reduced in the HCPb group vs. The subjects’ body weights and dietary intake checklists were monitored every 4 weeks, and dietary adjustments were made as necessary.

A study in an obesity clinic examined the relationship between knowledge of appropriate foods and beverages needed for weight loss and the actual diet of patients seeking obesity treatment. Breakfast is either eggs and a fruit or a protein drink with almond milk, lunch most of the time is a chicken breast and spinach, dinner is a meat and veggie.
Is there anything in nuts and fruit that I really need that I can’t get elsewhere in my diet? But then my weight started creeping up again and I’ve since gained back half of the weight I had lost.
This hunger is overwhelming unless I eat a LOT of food–upwards of 2500-3000 calories per day with at least 130g coming from protein. What can I do to get better control of this besides a high-fat, adequate protein, low-carb nutritional approach. But I’ve been having trouble getting into ketosis over the past 3-4 months and I find it hard to understand why I’m gaining weight or not losing on such a well-formulated low-carb diet. Am I on the right track in following the low-carb lifestyle in order to lose the 10 extra pounds I have put on? My current eating plan has been to maintain nutritional ketosis for five days and then two days of semi-fasting low-carbing a week down to 500 calories. Jack Kruse’s Leptin Reset plan in which you start out each day with a breakfast of 50 to 75 grams of protein within a half-hour of waking. Book jacket.Low-carb diets work Just look at the continued sales of the venerable Atkins Diet and of the upstarts, Wheat Belly and Paleo.
The study found that although the patients recognized what an appropriate diet plan included, they did not consume an appropriate diet for weight loss. My current macronutrient ratios have been about 80% fat, 16-20% protein and 1-4% carbs–in other words very ketogenic. I do not use any form of sugar or substitutes and I get an average of 8 hours of sleep a night. I actually started gaining weight despite keeping calories very low and exercising excessively. When I was on the 800-calorie diet, I noticed I had to keep my protein under 60 grams a day, so I’m wondering if it’s not just the carbs, but also the protein that is causing the problems for me. Maybe my body needs more time to adapt to this way of eating, but it looks like it will preferentially store fat from the diet rather than burn it.
I have thought about perhaps starting with his plan and then after six weeks transition to high-fat, low-carb. I am now eating the cleanest diet I’ve ever consumed in my life but my body is not responding the way it used to. At the end of the 32 weeks, those who had consumed a 600 calorie breakfast had lost an average of 40 lbs. Treatment approaches should include tools that help patients implement their nutrition knowledge.
Jeff Volek called The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living in 2011 and The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Performance in 2012. In the beginning I felt very good because all my cravings went away and I felt good mentally.
I am not excessively overweight by any means but could afford to probably lose 10 pounds or so to be at a healthier weight. I’d like to think I can live on more than 800 calories a day for the rest of my life, so any solution you might have for me would be appreciated.
Calorie restriction means unbearable hunger for me and that’s absolutely unsustainable.
This seems to be a frequent issue for older woman on the low-carb forum I visit, so any advice will be shared with others in my situation.
What added benefits would I get from just going on your high-fat, moderate protein, low-carb approach compared to this other plan? Laura Lamont, a qualified nutritional therapist who introduced the UK to the revolutionary Shirataki (zero carb) Noodle, brings us a healthy new take on low-carb dieting. I’m fairly muscular because of my weight training, but no amount of dieting helps me lose weight. I recognize that body composition is a better way of measuring a healthy weight, but something’s gotta give.
The ketogenic recipe for blunting hunger and natural calorie control doesn’t seem to work for me. Should I just hang in there eating this way to give my body more time to adjust and let the weight come down eventually?
Lamont explains how eating a nutritionally sound combination of controlled amounts of complex carbohydrates, protein, and good fats (in foods such as avocados, salmon and flaxseed) at the right times of day can bring about healthy, long-lasting weight loss. I walk quite a bit every single day as I live in a city but I have found it hard to find a routine that doesn’t adversely affect the stability of my blood sugar levels. Does your body become resistant after awhile making it necessary to reduce dietary fat intake in order to see fat loss happen?
