    Have you made any progress since you made the above post?

    It sounds like a mixture of insulin resistance, food allergies (perhaps several - the gluten free thing may have just eliminated one which made you feel better, but you then increased quantities of another which led to you being worse), and perhaps lowered metabolism from eating so little for so long.

    I have some info on creating a diet that will help you weed out food allergies, if you are interested. It's kind of a pain in the ass, but if you can hit it from a sciencey experimentation angle, it could be interesting for you. (I'd have to find it, so might take a week or so. Let me know if you're interested.)

    Here's the article on metabolic damage that I found to be a good read - you can determine if it applies to your situation. The part on "getting your metabolism back" might be the most interesting for you.

    Somewhat, I lose heart for a while due to frustration but it doesn't tend to last too long provided I have an idea of where to look for a solution. I'm going with home made raw protein balls instead of nuts as a snack for now, made my first batch last night with whatever I had on hand and they're nummy and filling so should help the metabolism, and looking at different smoothies as a weekend breakfast as it's showing that I consistently miss breakfast or lunch on weekends.

    Absolutely, the removal of wheat products like bread from my diet instantly reduced carbs, over time I found things like potatoes and corn to replace, both high GI so bad for my insulin levels, which was hella annoying! So now I avoid high-GI bread and potatoes etc and it does have an impact without having to avoid wheat, low carb beers are included in my diet XD

    Would be most interested if you're able to locate it, is it an elimination diet kind of set up? I've been looking for something here, I have had some cashews since having a bad reaction as I was just too tempted looking at them and on both occasions had an instant gut ache, I'm too scared to dig into the dry roasted almonds though as they're my favourite and having a reaction will give me a sad, but I do want to know. My diet isn't raw but besides dairy and my own cooking it's close-ish to 100% unprocessed foods (fruit/veggies) which makes cutting anything specific out pretty easy.

    Thanks for that, good read, I'm going with eat more exercise more without deliberately knowing it would help so I'm glad to have read that to encourage me not to drop it off.

    I'm sure my eating habits have slowed my metabolism and am concerned about getting enough without 'too much', things have improved a bazillion times over for me since the realisation I have an issue with insulin, it also coincided with getting hormones so the two factors together likely played a role and weight just fell off, before that I was about a size 48 and dropped to about 34 without any effort besides limiting high-GI carbs and sugar, I've kinda hovered around 32-33 for a couple of years with a few beer spikes XD so my focus is on dropping body fat while increasing muscle vs just losing weight although I could drop maybe 5kgs and be happy. I have more energy most if the time when I'm including physical activity, and can get away with eating foods that have sugar/high GI carbs on occasions without an adverse reaction if I've exercised so I can see that there is an impact from what I'm doing overall.
