I hope you guys don't mind me splitting this into a separate topic.

loelaj, I would guess that most likely your scale isn't that accurate; most bathroom scales are not.  In some cases, though, people see muscle gains that compensate for fat loss initially, if they were previously not eating sufficient meat.
That could be it, thank you

Hi loelaj,

Have there been any changes to your activity/exercise in this time?
No, not yet. Since this is a drastic change to my diet, I thought I would just do the dietary changes for the first month, then add exercise so I don't feel too overwhelmed. I think a big reason people give up is that they try to take on too much at once

I've taken to rooibos tea lately (a South African variety without caffeine). Less boring than water, less caffeinated & addictive than coffee, less sugar than fruit juice.

Same old for meals (granola, salads, eggs, etc), another roo steak & salad for dinner last night - prawns (with coconut cream, kaffir lime leaf, coriander leaf (aka cilantro), scallion, chilli, ginger, garlic, S&P) tonight. I had less fruit than I have lately (refer to Warren's previous comment). Last night I had smoked salmon for "dessert" - I've found a brand that contains only salmon, salt, and woodsmoke (most have sugar in the curing mix).

I found a supplier of excellent free range, grass fed meats recently, so yesterday I stocked up the freezer with various cuts of beef, pork, and lamb which is farmed close to home. Expensive, but a little goes a long way.

The amount of meat and eggs you are eating now is sufficient to maintain muscle mass, but if you felt like eating more, it wouldn't be harmful.

After you reach your goal weight you will need to eat more fat, but for now you don't need to unless you want to.  Less fruit might decrease the hunger as it would reduce the insulin spikes.
