I'm not a nutritionist or any other expert. I can only say what happened with me. I think, for myself, the early going was much easier to shed the pounds. I feel my body is always attempting to stabilize itself and after I've been doing the same thing for a while it slowly stops working and I have to change things up to break the plateau.

Again, I have no professional background in these matters. That being said, I suppose it's possible.

I think you should just continue working at it and see how your body responds. Most people here will tell you that adjustments are necessary to keep losing over extended periods of time.
