I was always following a low fat diet, from fats I used only extra virgin olive oil, raw sesame oil and nuts, lots of eggs, buckwheat, lentils, quinoa, fruits, vegetables and tried not to eat in the evenings. My weight was pretty fine, at least I could easily regulate it.
Since discovering westonaprice website, I ordered 5 books recommended by Wise Traditions, some are written by Sally Fallon and Mary Enig. I was confident that the new knowledge will change my eating habits and my life for the better.
Unfortunately, after following high fat eating plan for just over a month, I put on 5 kg of weight and am very disappointed.
Does this mean that this high fat eating plan does not suit me?
I do not eat any sugary or refined foods, just healthy fats, eggs, meat, butter, some fruit, lots of green vegetables and sea salt. I started eating lots of butter with rye sourdough or buckwheat bread – could this make me put on weight? Or am I eating too much butter and cream, but on this website it says they can be eaten freely? Do I need to count calories, I never counted them before. I also noticed my hair started to get greasy, is it because of butter?
I am concerned because I want to eat and feed my children healthily, but do not want to be piling on weight.
Since it does not work for me, shall I stop this high fat diet and return to my old low fat eating?
What am I doing wrong???
I would really appreciate your explanation.
