I remember when I was in my thirties and using Richard Simon's Deal-a-meal program (similar to Weight Watchers point system.) I had hit a plateau for about a month when the people that I car-pooled with suggested stopping on the way home someplace for an ice-cream cone on a Friday afternoon. I convinced them to stop at my favorite custard shop in Excelsior, Minnesota. There is nothing better than Adele's Frozen Custard. http://adelescustard.com/
Overnight, I dropped five - YES 5 pounds. And over the next couple weeks I continued to lose weight but smaller amounts. I remember realizing that I had cut too much fat out of my diet. But I forgot about that until this past week.
A specialist that I see has mentioned to me that I might be carb sensitive. One way to check is to go for a short period of time with almost no carbs. So here I am preparing for a Fat Fast which is five days of eating no carbs, 80% of my calories from fat and 20% of my calories from protein.
