Current Weight:(06 Feb 16) 169.8 lb
Goal Weight:160.0 lb
following: HCB's own diet
performance: losing 0.1 lb a week

I am a 60 year old woman with the hope of reducing my weight for my health and to meet my fitness goals of increasing muscle and losing body fat. Up until I was about 45 years old, I exercised regularly and watched all my food choices. In fact, when I was 40 years old, I was in the best condition. This was an accomplishment since I had been an overweight kid, and battled weight off and on for most of my adult life.

Then, menopause hit and I started a more sedentary job...and I also have hypothyroid! I just slowed down and didn't seem to care anymore about my health.

I have done organized programs at the gym, and food programs. I tend to do well for a while until I hit the dreaded plateau...and then I am discouraged and give up. I WILL NOT give up this time.

My profile photo is me in October 2015. My progress photos are displayed below.

Hi Carbs
Perhaps you are at your ideal weight already - 114 is very low, right? Instead of losing weight, perhaps increase your muscle with strength training.

Optimal Ketogenic Living
Opps meant to write "if your FAT is at 70% and the carbs are under 10% then thereat can be protein"

Optimal Ketogenic Living
I have played around with protein percentages within my ketogenic program. Not sure if it made a difference - but I have read not to exceed 30% protein when doing LCHF - I think if your protein fat is at least 70% and the carbs are under 10%, you can easily have the rest as protein.

Weight Chart
congrats! As you get closer to your goal weight, the lines change color! After yellow, it is green, and when close or at goal it turns blue!

severely constipated
Try adding magnesium tablets to your diet - they have a natural laxative effect.
