Hi everyone. I started my low carb diet a little over a year ago. I cut out, sugar, grains, fruit, starchy veggies, and anything that included some carbohydrate sounding ingredients on the back. my diet mostly consists of eggs, fish, nuts, and veggies, i do have meat from time to time but i have never been very fond of it seeing as i was a vegetarian before i converted to the low carb life.
my weight loss was amazing and first. i was feeling great, both mentally and physically, and my numbers were excellent too. I managed to lose close to 30 pounds, which i have been trying so hard to keep off. lately, within the last month or so, i feel it creeping back on. the only diet change i have come across is that i may be taking in more veggies than before. (spinach, lettuce, kale, cucumbers, and avocado) i am wondering if those are small amounts of carbs with high fiber are throwing off my diet? i would really like to get back on track and feel that success again. i have gain ten pounds back and feel pretty down about it. even increasing my exercise (walking and jogging) has improved my blood sugars, but not my weight.
Has anyone experienced a plateau or setback like this from the diet? if so how did you break through?? wondering if the carbs from the almonds and fresh veggies is the cause. Thanks.
