    I am very disappointed with the LCHF plan! I have no complicating health conditions, 'simply' need to lose weight. I don't eat beef or pork, but followed the plan carefully in all other ways for 2 weeks. I gained a pound each week! I can't let this go on and feel like I have no choice but to revert to a lower calorie plan.

    Hi Zia, from most people I've spoken to, normally this means something's out of balance. Do you know roughly how much you were eating in terms of carbs? I aim for around a maximum of 20g a day (sourced from veg). After a while there's no need to count anything as you get used to what you're eating. I found that eating once a day, eating only when hungry and eating until full worked great for me. Try not to snack or eat 3 meals a day just because that's what everyone is used to doing. If you get a small pang of hunger, you might just be thirsty. Have a glass of water and give it 5 minutes and the feeling will often go away.

    If you don't eat beef or pork, there are plenty of other options. Chicken, duck, lamb, salmon, mackerel, tuna etc. Adding lots of veg made me feel great too (spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts etc). When I started out, I kept a log of what I was eating and worked out my carb / fat / protein ratio to give me an idea of what worked best for me. I aimed for about 65-70% fat, 25-30% protein and 5% carbs. Good luck, don't give up :-)
