Not exactly sure my waist measurement. But I am now seeing http://www.stevegranthealth.com who did a 10 day food diary with me and is trying exactly that - increasing my calories and making sure I eat 5 meals a day at regualar intervals. I was eating 1500 cals and he wants me on 2500 cals. So let's see in a month if any change.

Typical day looks like this.

8am: 4 egg omlette.

11am: celery with nut butter.

1pm: large salad with fish.

5pm: Fresh coconut (berries and nuts on pre workout days)

8pm: Main meal of vegetables, fish, oils, (sweet potato on post workout days)

Firstly, if I did have body dysmorphia, that would not be a sensitive way to speak to me.

And secondly, I'm not bothered about the numbers. If you could see my belly you'd realise it's fat.

There's no-one who disagrees. Including all the doctors I have seen.

Nobody eats 3500 calories of a single macronutrient, because you need a balanced diet. Within the context of a real diet, macronutrient ratio makes essentially no difference.

That comment was for Matt 11 Re cico.... I'm. Not sure why it put it saying to you.

3500 wwas picked purely because of its assumed caloric value equals 1 pound of body fat. But it won't depending on the macronutrient because of loss of energy in the way the body processes it.

Like for protien, 25% of the energy from the calories are lost in the process. So 3500 =1 pound, but for protien it would =3/4 of a pound.

And yet, a type 1 diabetic could eat 25000 calories a day for a year and lose weight.... Because of no insulin why would your oversimplification of how a body work apply if it doesn't in every case?

Now let's change the subject to macronutrients, say you eat 3500 calories of fat vs 3500 calories of protien vs 3500 calories of carbs.

Because of how they are processed by the body you lose calories in the process of burning some more then others so you would actually gain less weight if you ate 3500 calories of fat compared to the other 2.

Digestive issues /malabsorption problems

We're slowly getting useful information....

How hard is it to answer these questions all at once?

What's your gender / age / height / weight / waist ?

current level of activity and current caloric / carb intake?

What does your food intake (details matter)

check out http://home.fuse.net/clymer/bmi/

At 6' 4" & 190..unless you're a completely unmuscled schmoo, I'd say you're down in the range of "hard to lose fat".

But the lack of details is making everyone guess.....

The OP needs to throw us a bone or two such as weight and waistline. You can only lose fat if you have fat to lose. Even if you're only overweight your body hoards its fat reserves.

No, there is no fish version. However, after you lose all the weight you want, you can go back to eating fish and other things. If you start gaining weight, go back to the basics.

When you post questions like this, we aren't mind readers. We need to know your height, weight, age, calories you eat a day, specific food restrictions, health issues, exercise, etc. What I've finally gathered after reading all the comments is:

You are a 6' 4", 150lb, 50 year old male, presumably active, eating 1200-1500 calories a day, pescetarian, with an acceptable but just slightly under BMI, a BMR of 1555 calories a day, and acceptable body fat percentage.

So, here's the problem. You are not eating enough at all. Not even close for an active male. You should be trying to get an additional 800+ calories in depending on how much you exercise.

When your body is chronically starved, anytime you eat a little extra it stores it as fat for the next time when you eat too little. It also takes from your muscle which can contribute to thin people looking heavier.

Your BMR is 1555. BMR is the bare minimum you would need if you were in a coma. I assume you aren't in a coma. You eat under that consistently, especially if you are actively working out.

So, you need to look for a TDEE (total daily energy expenditure) calculator and figure out what you really need to be eating. Then, you need to make sure you consistently hit that mark +-100 to 200 calories.

Here's what is going to happen when you stop starving, you're going to gain weight quickly but it won't be major. This is your body adjusting to a new caloric intake. After your body sees that it isn't going to be starving anymore, it will stop holding on to its fat stores and will up your metabolism again to work on the new calories. After this, you should have no problems shedding any spare fat as long as you are otherwise healthy, active, and eating a healthy Paleo style diet.

As an example, I am a 6 foot tall woman with a similar BMR (don't remember the exact number right now) but my TDEE is 2300 due to my job and daily activity level. That's a large difference and I notice if I consistently eat under that.

Eat more and good luck.

We can lose our fat by exercise and fat less food. Everyday a parson need exercise and having some diet food. Exercise make your body fit and diet food gives you energy not fat. Paleo food is best for dieting . Paleo food gives you lots of fat losing recipe. Here you will get lots of fat losing recipe . I think it will be helpful for your dieting. My weight was 107 kg then i got paleo cook books its very good for dieting , now my weight is 79. if any one want to get it click here.

Go on Cronometer and count calories. If you're not counting calories then you are basically just guessing. Do it in an organized manner. For example, if you eat 2,200 calories for 3 weeks and don't lose a pound then lower it to 2,000 calories and try for 3 more weeks. Still nothing? Lower it again. You need to find that sweet spot that is not so low that your metabolism slows down but low enough that you stay motivated.

well, imo , you're not being honest. You HAVE to be taking in more calories than you consume. Most folks who're working out, think they can take in more calories of "good stuff" and will slip( and not count) that candy bar or Big Mac, thinking, I'll work it off. Protein powders have alot of extra calories, too. So do bananas and grapes, etc. Those calories add up.

Well, thermodynamics has nothing to do with it( you actually "burn" calories freezing ).. Burn is perhaps the wrong word. Consumes, utilizes, processes, metabolizes, etc.

AFA basic knowledge, well. The truth is, your body will take the path of least resistance( basic physics). Which means that it will "consume" muscle first. IF you just took in less calories than your body consumes, every day, your body will consume muscle. So, to get it to burn fat, you have to build muscle and feed them with protein. That forces your body to begin to consume fat. Of course, more basic knowledge. Weight is the worst way of monitoring your progress. Muscle weighs more than fat so as you lose fat, you could actually gain weight, but you'll have less fat. The best monitor is the mirror and how your clothes fit and the "pinch an inch" test. You'll know when you lose fat and your muscles get bigger , more toned. Lift heavy and lift often and it don't have to be in a gym. I live on a farm and farm chores are a good workout. I dig post holes with a manual post hole digger. I have a garden and bend over and pull weeds by hand. I carrying 5 gal buckets of water for the ducks and goats. I take 5 gal buckets and fill them with dirt or sand and carry them around. I take 12' logs, 8" in diameter and lift one end and walk it upright, with my arms and walk it back down, do a squat and lift it up again. I push and pull my full sized pick up truck. Try running up and down stairs or a hill.

I am having the same trouble (age 52, female, 5 foot 4, 144 pounds, reasonably active) been eating just meat, veg, fish, sea food. Not even cheese. gave up nuts and fruit and dried fruit to lose weight. Even that did not work. Gave up coconut oil in cocoa.

I don't count calories so I suppose I need to. I tried intermittent fasting 1 or 2 meals a day only recently and did not shift a single pound.

Today is fairly typical with no IF - B: 2 slices of bacon fried in olive oil, 3 poached egg yolks

L: salmon and mixed sea food fried in olive oil with courgettes and a lot of seaweed spinach with butter.

D: half a small swede raw with a pack of smoked salmon (no added sugar).

Snack - one teaspoon of cocoa powder (no sweetener or sugar) with a tablespoon on gelatin with hot water.

I might as well go back to hot chocolate, chocolates, nuts and raisins with cream as I'm not losing any weight at all. If I don't want to count calories do I have to give up al veg for a while and only have 100% meat/eggs/fish/sea food?

Try no butter, very little olive oil, but add some fatty fish and more vegetables. Steamed salmon is better than smoked.

My post on the last page may apply to you as well. Also, why'd you cut out coconut oil? And, stay off the scale

Check your thyroid. If you're dieting and you lose nothing it usually means thyroid trouble.

As multiple posts have mentioned....

What's your gender / age / height / weight / waist ?

current level of activity and current caloric / carb intake?

http://home.fuse.net/clymer/bmi/

If you're close to 'fit' losing additional fat is difficult.

Your recent revelation of being pescetarian points toward "you probably don't have much bodyfat to lose" unless you're also a junk carb (cakes, cookies, sweets) eater.

I'm 6' ... I was 220, now I'm 190. Losing fat at the beginning was simple, below 200 lbs it got harder. After a year at 190, I've gained some muscle back. If I want to lower my bodyfat from this point, it will require much stricter adherence to diet. I'm not sufficiently motivated to do it.

Just want to shift belly/hip fat.

Low cal not working - or HFLC

Count calories. It works.

It works like a champ if you're starting out obese.

Thanks. I should have mentioned I am pescetarian. Is there a version with fish broth perhaps? Thanks

No, there is no fish version. However, after you lose all the weight you want, you can go back to eating fish and other things. If you start gaining weight, go back to the basics.

If you do not feel hungry, try different seafood and fish with vegetables. Make sure to have a little bit of sauerkraut.

Ok, here is the diet for you and I GUARANTEE YOU ARE GOING TO LOSE WEIGHT:

Breakfast: bone broth. If you still feel hungry, add some meat on the bone, green leafy vegetables.

Lunch: liver with 2 tbs. sauerkraut.

Dinner: vegetable salad + any meat/fish of your choice.

Every third day add some carb-heavy vegetables for your dinner. Pumpkin, beets, whatever feels right.

Please come back and tell us how it worked for you.

The OP needs to throw us a bone or two such as weight and waistline. You can only lose fat if you have fat to lose. Even if you're only overweight your body hoards its fat reserves.

What's your gender / height / weight / age / goal? Also, what's your current level of activity and current caloric / carb intake?

With that info, you can calculate something that should work slowly over several months, stick to the plan daily, and track your progress.

OK then, my backup plan is fasting and VLCD, with alternating bouts of "well planned HFLC" and that means getting a Phinney - Volek book and following it.

I would add though that what works for me, may not work for you. Your frustration may be due to many things, but I'm guessing you've had this happen before on other diets. The key is knowing yourself. You can begin to unravel the mystery by reading Death by food Pyramid by Denise Minger. She will not tell you that you must follow a low carb plan or a this or that plan, she will tell you the truth, which is that all people have different genes that lead them to succeed in different ways. However, all people need the same basic nutrition, and where to get that nutrition is mostly from the same sources.

You might also use something like nutritiondata.self.com or fitday or caloriecount or cron-o-meter to track your nutrition so that you have confidence that you are feeding yourself adequately. It also avoids nasty conversations with doctors who claim your diet isn't "nutritionally adequate" because the proof is before their eyes.
