I've been noticing an interesting trend going around about how women tend to lose more weight on a moderate carb diet as opposed to a low carb diet.
My dad and I (I am 21...) did low carb over the summer and he lost about 10 pounds, but I didn't lose an ounce or any inches. Apparently I "looked better" though, whatever that means. After reading all the books that came out recently about gluten/wehat/carbs I switched from vegetarian to LCHF Paleo, but I've gotten nowhere. I desperately want to lose the 20lbs that I gained freshman year of college.
I am 159lbs, and 5'8"... My most comfortable weight was probably when I was 133, but 140 would be great to get back to as well. It was the last time I felt confident/comfortable in my body. I also have a bit of a bingeing problem, but when I eat enough that stays more under control. I do moderate exercise- an inconsistent schedule of running and weightlifting. My stress levels due to being a senior in college are obviously pretty high (although I was pretty calm this summer!). I got my bloodwork done and everything looks fine. I also went off birthcontrol about 8 months ago.
Are there any other women who found that LCHF did not work for them? And any who have found that moderate carb does?
