I've reached a level where my weight loss has slowed down, but I have to also be careful on changing my diet too drastically being diabetic 2

There is another possible of not getting your heart rate up. Medications. Some, like a beta blockers don't allow much of a variance in the heart rate. Good article! Thanks!

Not all calories are created equal - it all depends on your body chemistry.
I recommend "The Plan" by Lyn-Genet Recitas, it is a 20 day "test" to see which foods work for you and which don't. The recipes are delicious.

I like that he gives ideas on what to look at and try for each individual. There are no 'one size fits all' answers. I was vegetarian for 27 years and grazed the entire time. I could be full but not satiated. I was told I needed more protein and tried all the fake meats & tofu to no avail. Now that I am back on meat I can eat a 100 gram pork steak and I am good for hours. No snacking, no craving. Not sure if it is the type of protein, or the fat content, but it works for me. And I am losing weight for the first time in over 20 years!

I highly recommend reading the book "The Obesity Code" by Jason Fung, MD.

Or: you eat too much.
Ever watch the show about the 600-pounders, where they swear up and down that they're following the prescribed diet? So they stick them in a controlled situation and actually restrict their calories...and the weight falls off.
You're probably underestimating how many calories you take in. Also, everyone is different. Where one person can lose on 1500 cals a day, I can't budge unless I knock it down to 1,000-1,100. Figure out what works for you, and NO EXCUSES.
"I'm on medication, I have fibromyalgia, it's the GMOs, it's food additives, it's the evil corporations and their high fructose corn syrup, it's gluten, it's stress, it's depression, blah blah blah..." Nonsense.
You eat too much.

Most of the time I agree with this type of articles. In reality, it's not tough to loose weight but its tough to maintained the weight we have loosen.

Its more about the food you are eating. I have had to eliminate all man made ingredients, especially emulsifiers / thickeners and Vegetable oils. I was eating 1200 to 1400 calories, exercising and getting enough sleep and not losing weight. I would gain weight when I got emulsifiers / thickeners and plateau when I got even a little Vegetable oil / margarine (trans fats). Calories in / Calories out does not necessarily equal weight loss. I read Eat Fat Lose Fat by Mary Enig/Sally Fallon and have added good fat for my diet increasing my calorie intake to 1600 to 2000 a day and eliminated everything that is not a whole food and I am losing weight and not hungry. Its ALL ABOUT THE FOOD. Nourish your body and it will love you.
