Update : I'm off p
laying in the So. Cal Summer Sun working on the final stage of summer travel and not Intermittent fasting (which lead to the weight gain, likely) weight gain reversal. Well, truth be told, I'm doing both. Walking is a tool. So is reducing dietary fat- while remaining low carb higher fat.
More reading from an expert: Amy Berger, Tuit Nutrition, has great blog and podcast content. I haven't read her book yet, but it's on my to read list. Here's her blog for more awesome LCHF reading
Good LCHF lesson from Amy Berger: http://www.tuitnutrition.com/2017/08/how-to-cut-fat-on-keto.html
TRUTH BOMBS > Fat Bombs
My Applied Weight Maintenance tool: I'm not WW low fat, just LCHF Lower fat. Oh, and I'm still Keto because I fast 17:7 daily AND eat LCHF. I find both helpful tools for weight loss near goal weight tool.
Most of my blog readers know how hard it is to lose weight close to goal.
1. Why: When I go much over my best weight maintenance goal weight, my body wants to go higher, and higher and higher in weight. My fat wants to come back after I lost 72 pounds lost in 2011 to 2012.
40 years of morbid obesity, overweight and yo-yo dieting is no joke. My weight regain is rapid and very unforgiving after a certain body weight.
2. Why Health Insurance Discount is in 1-2 months. Weighed, measured, and biomarkers. This will be my 7th year of having to have my body measured for my discount. It is what it is. Keeps me on the straight and narrow, for sure.

Knowing what to adjust in my food template is gold!
|2011 to 2017 #weightmaintenance|
What didn't work for me in the past
1. Eating too much dietary fat, while even low carb. See that bump on the second graph, right hand side? Yeah. IF helped, so did matching my protein grams closer to my fat grams. NOT Low fat. Lower fat.
2. I would have been diagnosed as a pre Type 2 Diabetic (which is T2D) in 2011 had I not been looking. Covering up my metrics was a way to sit on the couch with a skinny cow ice-cream studded with M&M's and watch The Biggest Loser. Points on Point, morbid obesity and T2D, not so much!
I could run, but I could not hide.
Hope your summer is ending well and my heart goes out to my Texas readers. Work like a super Ninja if you need to reverse a trend. At any re-gain stage. I hope you'll give Amy's blog a regular read.
