Hi, just to let everyone know who is really serious about weight loss that it is possible that ingestion of dietary fat could very well cause insulin resistance in some people, which blocks weight loss. Maybe not for everyone but it's worth a try. Even good fats and high fat natural foods such as nuts and avocados must be eaten very sparingly. Some may disagree but it works for me every time. If I continue to eat more than a very small amount of even good fats, it doesn't matter how little food I eat or how much I exercise, the inches pile up around the middle. When I go off fats the inches melt off within a week or two. I eat plenty of whole grains, potatoes, legumes, fruits, vegetables, and small amount of nuts. You won't go hungry eating this. I would love to hear of someone else who can't lose weight despite their best efforts trying this.
