    grain are complex carbs so naturally I avoid them, but I eat heaps of vegies, nuts and seed and a little fruit, I probably average around 30-50g of carbs per day depending on what I eat, some day's maybe under 10.

    See my sig :)

    It is hard, honestly i've found in the past if you want to get those last few kgs off it comes down to how consistent you are with diet. You can easily undo 5 days worth of dieting by simply eating to much on a Saturday/Sunday night.

    Conversely overweight people can find it "easier" to lose the weight at first because their weight is a lot higher than it should be..... i know its an extreme example look at the contestant on the biggest loser some of the really overweight people can lose 10-12kgs in a "week" 3 weeks later they struggle to lose 3kgs.

    3 weeks in the biggest loser is in fact 5 sometimes 6 weeks, it's not the actual time frame they lead us to believe, and the initial few weeks the majority is nothing but fluid

    The key is not to be to hard on yourself if you aren't as disciplined as you want to be. To often people undo hard work by going "stuff this" and eat away all their good work. Slowly, slowly chip away at it.

    Say you eat 4 meals a day every week, so 28 meals in total. If you are now getting 21 of those meals that hit your targets, aim for 23 the next week, 24 for the week after and try limiting the weekend splurge.

    Southern Hemisphere is kicking low carb arse.

    Australia - CSIRO officially backs low carb diet

    New Zealand - Ministry of Education just announced LCHF advocate Prof Grant Schofield as the first ever Chief Education Health and Nutrition Advisor.

    South Africa - Tim Noakes has been found not guilty by the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) on a charge of unprofessional conduct and with overwhelming evidence presented now calling for dietitians to be flexible and open minded in offering professional advice

    Does that mean I will have to limit saturated fat with my pet Rat?

    Oh' the 39% sweetened condensed milk and 17% fructose probably didn't help with the high fat results.

    And why did the paper described tallow as inflammatory yet had lauric acid (50% of coconut oil) & healthy animal trans fats as good, then went on to call LA inflammatory?

    One of these days I would love to see a study where humans are put on a Chow diet for a month.

    My ignorance on this issue? Can you elaborate.

    Also have you read the latest editorial in the British Medical Journal?

    "
    Editorial

    Saturated fat does not clog the arteries: coronary heart disease is a chronic inflammatory condition, the risk of which can be effectively reduced from healthy lifestyle interventions"

    Bulk prepping
    Can be a pain but if you can bulk prep a few types of meals and fridge or freezer them maybe
    If you get to eat at work canteen with the fifo stuff that might be hard tho

    But at home either buy healthy ready to eat stuff or prep up

    We usually cook up on a sunday day for the week ahead

    Veggie bakes
    chicken thats cooked lasts for a good few days in the fridge
    Chow mein, lasagne
    Cmon there's heaps of meals you can make that will give you three or four meals for the week stored in the fridge
    We bulk soup as well...make a massive pot of veg soup, let it cool then put it in zip lock bags and freeze it flat....great for easy last min snacks or meals at work, just take one out the freezer the night before.
    You're only limited by your imagination
