When Dr. Westman says "the body is adjusting" during a weight loss stall. But readily admits he doesnt know what is actually going on. I wonder if that type of information will ever be known.

Most things regarding humans are non-linear. Said another way, human change is dynamic. The change in the Input is *NOT* proportional to the change in the Output ! Not surprising this happens in weight loss as well.

I wonder if fat loss is more linear than weight loss ? It would have to be, but I wonder to what degree.

These are great tips and reminders! When I was new to low carb, I did everything meticulously by the book. But over the years I have become complacent by over-customizing and adjusting to the point that the diet no longer works as well.

The stall breaker that has always worked for me is a few days of meat and eggs.
