    i know it's *really* obvious but why not reduce your portions a bit?

    I haven't totalled it up but it looks like a fair # of calories you have there...

    maybe go for more fats (esp good fats) and much less carbs?

    You're not taking in any carbs to burn. You need some carbs, an all-protein diet won't contribute to weight loss. I try to take in at least 30% carbs every day. Assuming I'll do 30-60 mins of cardio.

    I've dropped from 185 to 168 in the last 3 months, all fat loss.

    morning glass of milk has 60g protein? that would add up to 6 servings of milk, which is about 84g carbs too. i would definitely cut that down

    Atkins is fine, if you go by the book. Most people don't even read the book and figure that atkins is zero carbs and 100% protein. Not the case.

    Also, I physically can't have excessive amounts of protein, as I have kidney stones.

    I try to get the majority of my carbs a bit before my cardio (unless I'm doing cardio first thing in the morning).

    carbs dont contribute to weight loss either. its all about calories-in vs. calories-out.

    i guess IMO you should just try reducing some of the calories in your meals Bam Bam, like callahan suggested.

    I agree in that you probably just need to cut down on overall calories a bit. You are obviously getting in plenty of protein and could stand to cut that down IMO. You really on need 1g per lb. of bw, and you could add in some EFA's.

    The carbs are not a necessity and will not really get any metabolic benefits by increasing your carb intake.

    I would hold off on the ECA until the diet is worked out. Getting a good structured diet and training program that is working and then adding in an ECA would be a better approach IMO. You would probably also see better results with the ECA supplementation as well.

    There was a nutritionist that came to a local health food store, and she flushed out her kidney stones with Apple Cidar Vinegar. Just food for thought.

    Yeah the one glass of milk will be fine, and it sounds like you are getting in enough EFAs. When finish the bottle of Udo's I would recommend going with a fish oil supplement because omega 3 fatty acids are generally the only ones that you need to supplement with. Most people get plenty of omega 6 fatty acids in their diet.

    Yeah, I've heard this works well. I'm going to ask my urologist (this week) before I try it though. If you've ever had stones, you'd try anything if it would prevent them from recurring.

    As far as protein intake on a ketogenic diet .8g per pound of bodyweight would be fine and is recommend by Lyle McDonald in his book "The Ketogenic Diet." This is approximately the same recommended amount that is made to most strength training athletes following a more balanced diet.

    There is no need to do cardio to lose weight!!!!. Cardio is good if you want to improve your cardiovascualr system, I would reccomend this( good for your heart and health in general) but weight loss can be achieved without cardio. Its what Ghetto was saying, its simple as you have to burn more calories then you take in. Thats the easy part. The hard part is you have to take in enough calories so you are only burning 1 -2 pounds a week. A mild caloric deficit. Probably want to start off at 200 calories less then your required daily intake. Then if you not loosing go down another 200. For the milk for breakfast I have 2-3 cups. Look around I have gotten a milk that is 11 grams protein 8 grams carbs. 265 calories 3 cups adds up to 33 grams protein and 24 grams carbs. Then I throw in an EFA. EFAs have really helped me since people on this board have told me about them.

    Im not sure if you know but the one to 2 pound only loss per week is because more would be muscle. Also, dont worry about weight, I actually like going on the scale and seeing my weight stay the same, yet my pants are looser and shirts fit better. Muscle takes up less space then fat.
