I am new-ish to the protocol. I have about 60lbs. to lose. A couple of years ago, I was at a normal weight and got there by doing Atkins extended induction, less than 20 carbs/day, for about a year and a half. I have since gained it all back because of ongoing clinical depression and a diagnosis of hypothyroidism, which I somewhat suspect was brought on by low-carb-ing too strictly (and since it does not run in my family and I don't fit the age profile, etc., but who knows?).
Anyway, most of my weight is in my stomach. In the past, the CLA supplements combined with low carb got rid of that bloating w/in a week so I could at least breathe a bit better. I know the Kerrygold has CLA, as does grass fed beef, but after a couple of bulletproof weeks (and about 12-13 lbs. lost) I am still uncomfortable and resemble a human bowling ball. Also, I am at about 30 carbs per day right now on BP.
Do any of you have any commentary on CLA supplements? I feel I should go back to them at least until I get some more weight off of my midsection.
p.s I've already searched the forums for an answer to this question, but they weren't much help, i.e. didn't talk about them much.
