Hi everyone! I'm desperate to lose another 5-10 pounds before summer. I started out at 160 and am down to 130 from the last 6 months. I am a female, 5'6. I can't seem to lose any more weight. I think I may have even gained a pound or two in the last week, not sure how. My diet consists of: chicken, salmon, tilapia, tuna, flounder, salads with homemade dressing, hard boiled eggs, avocados, lots of veggies, etc. I eat 100+ g of protein, 70g fat and 40g of carbs or less. Any suggestions of different foods to add or eliminate? I haven't been to the gym too much lately either. Should I cut my carbs even more? Thank you for your help.

One suggestion would be to incorporate some type of high intensity exercise into your routine. Sprinting is a great way to do this and could very well you improve your body composition. Notice I didn't say lose more weight...sprinting may allow you to lose a few more pounds of fat, while possibly gaining some lean mass, which might offset the number you see on a scale.
Here are some good links to get you started:
If you do begin to incorporate sprinting, take it slow at first...
