Hi, been lurking a while & have read posts about this but TBH most of it goes over my head as I'm not used to the jargon.
My wife & I started Michael Moseley's Low Blood Sugar diet and we're now coming towards the end of week 7. I've lost 10kg but have now been at 87 kg for at least a week and still religiously sticking to the diet (aiming for 800 calories a day, mostly achieve that, occasionally 750, sometimes 900 & rarely 1050). My wife is in a similar stuck position .
Looking around online, I can't see any other reason than "as your weight decreases, your maintenance requirement decreases" but that doesn't account for the stickage as my requirement has dropped only from 2480 to 2330 ish, so that's 150 per day but I'm at least 1100 to 1500 calories a day under that need.
Anecdotally you hear about tough dieting regimes "your body goes into starvation mode and uses a lot less energy" - is there any truth in this?
Has anyone got a good reference they can point me to that explains what's going on & how to beat it?
