Is this plan ok for me: F/47/106lbs?
I need to know if this plan is ok for someone who is normal - lower weight but who still wants to live a healthy lifestyle. I have dieted & exercised all of my life and am tired of constantly feeling hungry just to remain "thin". The appeal of this diet is that it sounds healthy without having to starve.
I am into week 3 with no results as of yet. I'd appreciate whatever advise is out there and Thanx!

I don't see why you can't follow the slow carb eating plan (note that I did not say diet). I am now pretty close to my target weight and I still follow the slow carb plan with some minor modifications. Like you, I want to improve my body composition without losing too much more weight. Indeed, in the last few weeks I have not lost much weight at all, but I am still seeing some positive physical changes.
Hi! You need to provide more information before we can begin to help you. First - what are you goals? What results are you looking for? Second, what are you eating and how much are you exercising? If you've been on this 3 weeks, then at the very least you shouldn't be feeling hungry and should have more overall energy.
I honestly don't know if it's the best for you. It depends on your goals. This diet is designed to burn excess fat while building muscle. You are already in the medically underweight category (I think I saw a previous post where you said you were 5'3"?), and this way of eating isn't designed for that. So if you are looking for the scale to go down more, then I'd say no. On the other hand, if you are looking to add muscle and aren't worried about the numbers on the scale, then I'd say yes, this would probably be a great option.
I admit I don't fully understand the mindset you have if you're underweight and feeling like you are hungry all the time - my first instinct is that you just need to eat more. But I don't know what your goal is. You said you are three weeks in with no "results" yet - maybe you can be more specific about the results you are hoping for.
