How am I doing? well the changes I have made to my diet so far mean I now rarely eat potatoes, pasta, rice and bread but must admit to still having a sweet tooth and enjoying a dessert or mostly home made 'healthy' cake (i.e made with ground almonds/coconut flour/ and sweetened with dried fruit, spices etc rather than white flour and sugar.
I already ate a lot of veggies and salads so that hasn't changed apart from trying different ones such as celeriac.
I lost several pounds by reducing my carb intake, in fact after a nasty stomach bug a few weeks ago when I was being constantly sick and couldn't keep any food down my weight dropped again and I haven't been able to put it back on so I am currently at my lowest ever and probably underweight to be honest.
As for upping my fat intake I have changed my low fat yogurt to the full fat variety, eat more nuts and cheese but still cannot bring myself to eat anything fatty or greasy. I do use EVOO and coconut oil in cooking and baking but that's as far as it goes.
When shopping I still find myself automatically looking for the 'lower fat' alternatives as this WOE seems to be firmly ingrained in my brain and it's really hard to change the habits of a lifetime.
Would love to hear how anyone else has changed their diet or managed to balance higher fat/low carb/calorie dilemma.
