Weighed my all-time lowest adult weight this morning: 171.2 lb

So what did I do? Ate some bacon for lunch. That'll put a pound on me, but it'll be gone in 2 days so it's no big deal.

It tasted great too.

I gave up dairy last week again and I'm still the same weight for 3 weeks now.. guess its a plateau. Any suggestions? I can't really IF because of hypoglycemia. I had asked Dr. Fung and he said not to do IF.

I don't want to advise anything because you have other health issues.

Have you tried smaller portions of foods resulting in fewer calories.

I know if I go over 16k calories I gain no matter how keto I am.

Stalls are a bummer, but they are usually temporary.

I would add to Bob's advice that eating (snacking) frequency can have a major impact on weight adjustments. Over time, I've adjusted to two meals a day with no snacking at any other time, and it's made all the difference.

A bacon breakfast today!!!

Composition of the meal was recently discussed on a youtube posting looking at high morning blood glucose levels.

He discussed timing of last meal and the amount of fat.

Maybe some useful info there. Ill post a link here if I can find it.

Thanks I've been trying to count calories as well. Sometimes it works but I have to be very active.

I have to count calories and walk 3-4 miles a day, at least 5 days a week. Plus fewer than 20 carbs/day and twice as much fat as protein.

The way I figure it is health is the most important thing. Without my health, I've got nothing.

The richest person in the world gets a better hospital bed, but that's about it and you can't Ctrl+Z or Undo all those donuts you ate in your life (or whatever your trigger is).

And it's working. In a couple of weeks I turn 74 and I'm on zero medications.

Activity helps the cells use its energy properly. The oldest people in a particular comunity are moving moving moving.... not exercise as we envision walking or a gym, but just busy busy busy. Imho a long walk must mimic their busy busy lives, rather than sedentary lives.

Bacon. Son told me he is microwaving the bacon.

Here is the video on youtube. Perhaps understanding how the body works will offer clues to help with weight management.
