It might not be the fat. Some of those carbs might be in foods which create an inflammatory reaction, fluid retention, and distress in the body which interferes with weight loss.

I rededicated to 20 a day in a quest to lose 10-15 pounds, and my health. I was astonished to find so much of what I was eating was, in fact, bad for me. I only figured this out with an elimination diet.

NOT taking foods out. Going all the way down to beef only, and THEN adding foods in one at a time.

To be pertinent to your original question: this wound up with me losing FORTY pounds and being much healthier.
