One thing that seems consistent in all diets I have tried these past 15 years is just eating less lol! Sigh...
I feel your pain. Gained 5lbs on NK. Prior to I kept cabs under 100g - fruit and rice included - and weighed 126lbs. Now at 131 after lowering carbs, cutting fruit, adding fat- HWC and Butter. Now I don't even know what to do to get this off other than fast. Devastated at this point.

Hi emmapal, I too have been low carb for years, wanting to lose a few, but really would be happy if I could just maintain without constantly "dieting." I have tried many variations on low carb without lasting success i have been lurking on NK forums for a while, reading about methionine/protein restriction, and ran across good old Dr Rosedale. His plan, in a nutshell, tells me I can eat non-starchy veggies and good fats at will (although I disagree slightly with him on what is a good versus bad fat), and only count protein. The protein amounts vary per person, but it looks like 15-20 grams 3 times a day. That's 2 eggs or a meat the size of a deck of cards, no more, at each meal. All else is fat and non- starchy veggies. He has some complicated stuff to say about dairy, so I'm just leaving it out except cream and butter. Anyway, I'm going for it. This is waaaay less meat than I'm used to, so it might actually work. I'll let you know how it goes. With your husband not liking meat too much, maybe this is something that would work for you, too? plus it has the added benefit of no counting!

Today I had
B: 2 eggs, 1/2 can sauerkraut, fried in about 1 T coconut oil
L: fresh spinach, small handful olives, 1/2 cucumber, can tuna, 4 T olive oil, 2 T vinegar, 1 clove garlic
S: 2 T almond butter, bunch of celery sticks
D: similar salad as lunch but without tuna, 3 oz Mahi Mahi (weighed it raw because I'm not used to small meat portions yet) cooked in kerrygold butter, asparagus roasted with a little olive oil
S: fat bomb

Good luck!
