If you have AS, but haven't lost anything, maybe you need to keep a food log and see exactly what it is that you are eating, so you can more easily figure out the problem.
I would not change the type of oil until you have done this.

I gain weight when I eat refined carbs like wheat flour, and so I have cut them out of my diet.
By my calculations, if you take twice your weight in flavorless calories, you need 356 flavorless calories a day, or 2.966 Tablespoons of oil a day. 
If you are taking 4 Tablespoons of oil a day, maybe the extra 120 calories is enough to keep you from losing.

3 pounds can be easily lost/gained due to water weight.  I have found that a good pancake meal, while delicious, can add up to 7 pounds to me.  Shocking, but true. 

Thus, I wouldn't be too concerned.  The most important thing is that you are keeping track of what you are eating, and SLD is just to make you feel better while reducing calories.  I agree with what some of you have said, you shouldn't go below 1200 calories a day.  I stay at around 1400-1500 when I am losing.

Oh, don't knock pancakes, they're heaven...! I've never had any troubles with weight gain after a good pancake breakfast, but then the pancakes I eat are 100% whole wheat flour with flax meal mixed in. They stick to the ribs, and they're delicious!

thank. but correct me if i am wrong namely11 aren't you male? men need more calories than women. yes i am eating alot lesser than usual thats why i don't get why i am not losing weight  :cry:

BTW i have very dry lips so even in the two hour window i put lip balm. i close my nose with my fingers so that i don't smell it.thats fine right?

and because i am eating alot lesser and probably wont get the required calcium and vitamin intake i have stared taken calcium and vitamins pills once a day..thats okay too right?

if your lip balm has flavor, (cherry, vanilla, etc) then get some that is not, like vaseline.
you do not want your SLD calories to become associated with your lip balm.

and yes, taking some vitamin supplements is probably a good idea.

Is that 1200 calories including your SLD dose?

If you have been dieting already, prior to starting SLD, it might take your setpoint a little bit of time to catch up.
Some people have taken over a month for them to start losing.

yes its 1200 including SLD and still no weight loss  :(

yes i know that...i posted about that earlier. but its been more than two months now. initially i didn't have much as but since the last 20 days i do have it.

 i have been trying to loose weight and so have been exercising and dieting before sld. i have lost around 15 kg prior to SLD but for almost an year now my weight has been stuck. whatever i loose i gain back  :( i though this new revolutionary diet was what i needed...

Jumping in here again, just to reiterate, if you've done the same thing for a while and nothing is working, its time to shake it up.  Do something different!  I was on a plateau for several months and I didn't get over it until I switched up things for a week or so, I'm back to taking the same kind of SLD dose and I'm losing again.  I'd suggest anyone who's done SLD for a while with no results switches their method up, even just for a little while.
