Just a thought ... your body may have gone into a state of emergency and is thinking it is starving, due to the change in your eating habits. Therefore, it is now storing fat. It's an automatic response. Perhaps you should up your use of fat a bit (the good kind, such as olive oil, canola, and low or no-cholesterol salad dressings), and you may find it works a bit better.
good luck with it! And keep up the healthy eating, give it time. RIGHT ON, GOOD FOR U!
I use canola and olive oil, but very sparingly. I little more probably wouldn't hurt. On the plus side, I'm feeling much better, and have a lot more energy. Maybe I need to increase the physical activity.
I wonder if typing faster would help?
