I am experimenting with increasing fat in my diet. Today I started out with a preportioned slice of sharp cheddar and 1/4 cup walnuts. I used to have the eggs and bacon, sausage or ham. Mid morning I wanted "something" so would have the nuts and cheese. So, eliminating the higher protien for the higher fat is my test. This is a test. This is only a test!

I have a relative who was stuck at 170 for weeks and weeks while only eating induction foods. I asked her what she was eating, exactly, and everything seemed fine except for the fact that she was grabbing some cheese or nuts everytime she got hungry (mostly because she wasn't eating enough at meal time). She was also eating an Atkins bar each day. I suggesting cutting the bar out and eliminating the cheese for one week and then try eliminating the nuts the next week...as a test. She cut the bars and cheese and lost 4 pounds the first week! So...yeah...it was an issue for her! I later found out she also eliminated nuts at the same time, so now that I think about it, it could be either one OR the calories. Guess it just pays to experiment. Good luck!

Down 4 pounds. The lowest I can remember. Going to do experiment another day and see what happens.

I think cheese slows down my weight loss but being able to eat cheese is part of what keeps my on the low carb track. If I ate more (non-processed) meat instead I think I would probably lose faster. Am a little stuck this last week or so and if it persists I'll go easy on the cheese.

That's great news, your experiment seems to be working for you.

My first attempt at low carb included a lot of dairy. It was a disaster. It took me 2 months to lose 3 pounds.

Worse, my rosacea flared and the arthritis in my knee became so severe I couldn't walk down stairs without gripping the railing with both hands. Fortunately, I had tracked what I was eating and eventually made the connection to dairy.

Once I cut out the dairy, everything improved: my weight loss accelerated and my skin and arthritis calmed down. It's possible that my weight loss was from reducing overall calories (I wasn't tracking calories then, only carbs), but I can't rule out the possibility that dairy-induced inflammation was inhibiting my weight loss. Whatever the reason, cutting out dairy was my key to progress.
