    Some low fat proteins that go well with fruit:

    mozzarella stick
    cottage cheese, ricotta, greek yogurt (I use 2%)
    black forest ham or other low fat deli meat (I like ham wrapped around pineapple)
    collagen ( I like to stir ia T. into hot tea with lemon or baobab powder and sweetener)
    defatted peanut powder spread (great with apples or banana)
    throw fruit into a small protein shake

    Thanks for the ideas. All good options. I had forgotten about the peanut butter powder. I like to put that in my oatmeal too. Funny thing about me and bananas...I love them, but it seems that every time I eat some, even half of a small one, I gain a lb. Iím like, really?! Why canít I just have some damn banana! SO annoying!!

    I am so with you on the banana frustration. I mean really, bananas?

    I had a list an arms length long for a while of crazy things I reacted to, like celery, butternut squash and kiwis. Did some gut healing regimens and now I can eat most of them. Still careful with eggs and corn, especially corn. But I'm noticing that I can tolerate tiny amounts of corn and some eggs in baked goods and not blow up 4 pounds overnight anymore, so maybe those are on the way out too.

    I’m know what you mean, what is it about bananas? They almost have to be a loading food! Geez.

    Leez, what gut healing things did you do? And how do you know if you have gut issues?

    When you react to lots of different things, it is likely you have leaky gut issues. So you have to heal those little perforations before you can overcome the food sensitivities.

    I'll have to look up the regimen I used. When I find it, I'll put together some kind of general roadmap.

    Just want to underscore that in my experience, leaky gut is real--and often goes hand in hand with metabolic derangement. I'm quite convinced that anyone who's obese likely has a whole host of underlying health issues to address and that we're not doing anyone any favors by propagating the false notion that it's about willpower and calories in/calories out.

    I've been on a very long road of healing underlying health issues nutritionally and am living proof that it's well worth it to keep diving down the rabbit hole and finding out what's going on with your body in your context. For me Whole30 was a great way to begin addressing all these issues, and as an elimination diet it helped me learn not just about what foods are problematic for me but also about eating for nourishment. And what goes hand in hand with that--and Leez has already said this, and I think we're all on board about it, but I want to mention it again--is not all carbs are the same.

    So this talk about low carb dieting and keto diets that honestly aren't very nutritious (a diet of pork rinds and macadamia nuts and heavy cream, for example, while effectively keto, would leave me feeling sick and tired and awful and undernourished) I know aren't a good choice for me. Neither is a diet that includes breakfast cereals and white breads and sugary treats on a regular basis. But squashes and sweet potatoes and other root veggies and fruit and beans on occasion? Definitely part of a healthy lifestyle for me that is otherwise focused on eating non-starchy veggies, animal proteins (though not dairy, because I have a casein intolerance), and healthy fats.

    Not trying to be prescriptive here or tell anyone what to do. Just sharing what's worked for me and this body with all its various needs and limitations. Wishing everyone all the best in finding out what works for them in the long run. I know how frustrating and demoralizing and hopeless it can feel. Don't give up!

I find that the principle mentioned in the protocol for the guidance in P3 about not combining fats and starches is a good rule of thumb even after you leave P3. When I eat consistently very low carb, I feel awful. So I tend to lean more to the low-fat, carb based meals. I've maintained goal within about a 10 pound range for over 5 years now after losing over 75 pounds with HCG.

    So I've tried various formulas and have sorted out that the Trim Healthy Mama is best for me. The THM plan is a very balanced approach to a lifelong eating plan that is not restrictive or burdensome. It allows (even encourages a small amount of fat in a meal that contains starch (1 tsp), and allows a minimal amount of starch in high fat meals (6 net carbs from non-vegetable sources, berries ok) You choose the type of meal you want each time you eat.

    You can eat normally, but you'll get off the rails if your choices tend to a lot of processed foods and snacks. Those will mess you up. So if that's normal for you, it won't work to just watch calories. But it's ok--- You can learn to like new treats. ^_^

    I've found that calories in--calories out is basically a myth. The body is not that simple. Success is more about consistently fueling your body with enough nutrition that cravings and binges don't happen anymore. That's when you can be in control and eat according to your real hunger and be able to stop when satisfied.
    Your maintenance is a inspiration and worthy goal for all of us. I think that may be the key, some food combinations will Encourage weight gain more than others. So itís higher carbs eat lower fat proteins? When higher fat proteins have lower carb veggies, sounds like? Leez, I know carrots are higher carb veggies, are people on p3 not supposed to have roasted carrots? I LOVE roasted carrots wi a touch of olive oil and sprinkling of Parmesan.

    That's pretty much it, except its not super rigid.

    When you roast veggies, the sugars concentrate. So roasting root vegetables, which are on the starchy side to begin with makes them even starchier.

    Its a general guideline in P3 to avoid root vegetables for that reason.

    That being said, of the various root vegetables, fennel, onion, carrots and beets are on the lower end of the root starchies. Probably best enjoyed raw in P3 or in small quantities cooked.
