I seem to be getting a lot of carbs in--mostly in the form of vegetables. Is this really detrimental to weight loss if I'm eating lots of low-glycemic, low-carb vegetables, in conjunction with lots of fat? For example, today I had about 5 large zucchini/summer squash and 5 small onions cooked in about 3 tablespoons of coconut oil, as well as 2 cups steamed broccoli, two pork chops (another tablespoon of coconut oil with that). Then I ate 3 cans of hearts of palm (these veggies are so good!) and about 3 cups of mushrooms.

Hmmmm..... add up the total carbs from those veggies, subtract out the fiber and Ill bet you did not eat that many carbs. What IS detrimental to weight loss is eating too much fat, if you stall out, you need to switch to more carbs, MUCH LESS fat.
You know.. so your body can burn YOUR fat instead of dietary fat.... :)
