AP3: No, I am not eating very much fat at all. I am getting most of my protein from turkey and chicken (white meat only), egg whites and protein shakes and bars. The carbs that I am eating are mostly green apples, grapefruit, fat-free cottage cheese and american cheese singles. In the morning I might have an english muffin with 1 piece of fat-free cheese. That would be about 140 calories, 1g fat, 24g carbs and 9g protein. Should I be eating more fat?

I am a 29 year old female, 5'2, 118# trying to lose the 10 pounds that I put on in the 2 months that I was on the Pill. I have always eaten nothing but junk food and around 3000-4000 calories per day, mostly carbs.

The Pill is the only thing that has ever made me gain weight and since I discontinued it (over a year ago) I can't gain or lose weight, no matter how bad or good I eat. I exercise a lot, but that doesn't seem to make a difference either. I really thought that drastically changing my diet like I have (down to 1300 calories a day and not all carbs like before), I would drop weight quickly since my weight was stable eating nothing but junk food and all carbs.

I made the diet change somewhat gradually, so I don't think my body is in shock or anything like that. Any ideas on why I am not losing?

The shakes that I drink after working out are whey protein. One of them has 196 calories, 1g fat, 3g carbs and 45g protein. The other has 110 calories, 1g fat, 3g carbs and 23g protein. Do these shakes sound alright?

Thank you for your replies. [img]http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/redface.gif[/img])
