    Studies have shown that people underestimate their daily food consumption by 20-30% -- obese people by even more. Perhaps this is the problem.

    Re: brick wall

    Your leptin levels have crashed. You need to eat about 20% above maintenence for 5 days or so (high carb, low fat), then incorporate regular refeeds into your diet.

    I am of the opinion that refeeds should be done more often. I know Lyle McDonald and Elzi Volk share this opinion, though they recommend longer, more moderate refeeds than I do.

    Use bonless chicken thighs rather than breasts. They taste MUCH better and would not have any more fat than your olive oil and peanuts would add.

    Re: bulking up...and fat gain
