Hello from wales
I did LCHF for years. It worked very well for me. I lost 4 stone doing it. If you need recipes for "quick n easy" or "fancy schmancy" just let me know. The Atkins method has its benefits but isn't a silver bullet in my very humble opinion.

I am stuck and cannot loose anymore weight!!!
I guess the main thing here is to ask yourself a question: How serious are you about losing weight? I stagnated for an entire year (2015 to 2016), trying all sorts of things. The one thing I did that caused the stagnation was to feel bored of the diet I was on while I was losing weight, which I was forced to be on by my doctor. I didn't return to it because I refused to believe that I couldn't lose weight if I just had a bit of a sneaky this or a crafty that every now and again. "Secret eating" was my weapon of choice for self-sabotage. How about you? Are you ready to face up to yourself? Back in 2012 when I was 126kg I had to get down to 85kg and that seemed a long way away. To use imperial - from 277lbs to 187lbs. I have lost 5 stone (70lbs) so far in 4 years. I have no misconceptions about this being a passing thing. I am on my 'diet' for life. I am doing this until the day I die. And I really want that day to be a long way away. So I guess I have two choices. To moan about it and find ways to fail myself or to get up, dust myself off and just get on with it. I use fatsecret to record and review. I use it to pay attention to myself and my habits both good and bad. Right now I am on a medically prescribed and pharmacist managed programme which ceases in a week and a half. I can't wait to get back to being 'normal' because not eating is not normal... but the euphoria of constant, unquestionable weight loss as 'a given' as you will see from my profile, well it's almost like a drug. My body is literally eating itself from the inside. The weight loss shows no signs of excess skin because the body munches away at itself, loose skin just falls back into place with the fat loss. I've lost the fat-lumps under my arms, my waist is 1" less, my belly is much flatter and I have done no exercise at all. Well that's not true - I exercised my right to choose. I chose to get off my fat arse and fix myself. I expect to be less tomorrow than I was today because I choose to be. After a couple of months of normality I am due to return to this fantastic weight loss programme and I don't fear it one little bit. I came out of morbid obesity in obesity and in a couple of days I will move into just being "overweight". When I resume I shall remain on it until I have lost another 14-20lbs, but this time it will because I want to!! It is only for those who are "serious about losing weight". So that's my story... what's yours?

my thoughts after reading others posts: reposting here as well...
Hi there. I totally agree. I was ordered off ALL processed food at the end of January. Look at my profile now! I wholeheartedly agree that they should be given a government health warning like cigarettes.

not impressed with only 1lb loss
It's good that you are depressed about the size of the loss but you must consider the more important issue at hand here Shabud - you lost. In my situation a static week is fine, two is fine, three is fine, as long as I am not gaining. Gaining is emotionally crippling to me personally. I would rather lose 1 gram or 1 ounce per week than gain it. And slow weight loss is good for your figure too. The ugly yellow globs of sticky fat hiding just under your skin are being taken and turned into energy by your body if you lose weight slowly. I don't follow any diet, I just pay attention to what I am putting in by recording it on my diary. The constant exposure to the data has taught me how to choose more wisely. But alongside this another great piece of advice I got was from my father in law (Professor Emeritus of Nutrition) who still lectures around the world about vitamins etc. He said my emotional side would need treats at least once a week to stay on track. Be naughty Shabud, have a ******** and enjoy it openly, while people are watching. Mine is toasted marshmallows. And I have a monthly treat of a Sunday Roast Dinner. We invite friends and everything. I'm getting it all out in the open to avoid all that emotionally hateful secret-eating I used to do. If they ask you just tell them it's your weekly treat. Stick to the one. Focus on it like I did at the beginning. Gosh it was hard but now I can do an entire month without treats but I have 'em anyway. Coz they keep me "on track" emotionally!

Your 1lb weightloss is to be applauded mate, not cried over. Well done you! Next week try to just take it as it comes, Your goal of 30lb lost is 1lb less than it was when you started - eh?

exercise management
Yeah! What Ingria said! Although as a sameday van courier who can often find himself rising at 2am to travel 500miles and then rest for a bit before doing some more - the game plan changes. My kind of driving is intense and needs recording. I'm not your average commuter.
