Original high everything was truly high everything, Matt has added an addendum because a lot of people were afraid of gaining but he has said that those who have been on low fat diets need the fat. I dont do low fat but most of my fat is from coconut oil which processes more like a carb and is metabolically active enough to burn itself off. Maybe you could focus on CO for fats. Also please dont do pmsf. I know Matt talks about it but I have experimented with many things and it didnt not pan out for me like its supposed to and I have read many reports that had crash diet type results with it. If you choose to do a diet to get fat off I would recommend dr. Simeons protocol over anything. You can find the book as an ebook online, it spares normal fat and only goes for abnormal fat. So even while doing the low cal diet you arent starving or dropping metabolism because the fat fuels you. It also resets the hypothalamus and from the extensive journals i have read most people stabilize at their new weight and are able to eat normally. PLus it only lasts 6 weeks max which is much better in my opinion than living on a diet for months and months.
But I do you hope you contemplate things carefully. I am sure you will. I am sorry you have gained but in the long run don't you want to let your body heal? the overfeeding element is essential at first to get the temps up, i know it's not comfortable but it will be worth it. even if your temps havent come up, eating starchy carbs like rice and potatoes is addressing any insulin resistance issues you have and I am sure your adrenals have been able to relax and begin healing. Maybe you can make a few tweaks to your day in order to keep your weight stable while you heal yourself. if you aim for less fat, i would recommend just lowering it, not actually going for 'low fat' because thats just another version of the restricting macros diet world. I am sorry you are frustrated and I hope things improve. are you noticing any difference in mood energy, skin, mental clarity etc?
