    This makes a lot of sense and I totally agree, Based on prior experience. Thanks for the reminder!

              This is from Paleobird's "Eat Moar Fat" thread...

              "I ran across an interesting formula for figuring your ratios from the work of Dr Jan Kwasniewski author of The Optimal Diet.
              First you figure up your IDEAL weight in KILOS. This is not necessarily the weight you are aiming for but it it your Ultimate HSIS (Hot Stuff In Swimwear) weight.
              HSIS weight in kilos plus/minus 10% = range for protein grams/day
              HSIS weight in kilos divided by 2 = upper end for carb grams/day
              The rest of your diet is fat. HSIS weight in kilos x anywhere from 2 to 3.5 depending on your weight goals (lower to lose, higher to gain)

              So, at my height and HSIS weight this come out to about 1500 calories if I use the low end of the fat range and that is sometimes hard to get enough to make that. I wouldn't want to do it any higher.

              Also, read the blog of Dr Peter Attia for more information on nutritional ketosis. "

              So this is mine...HSIS weight is 72kg (I actually look great at 160!)
              That makes my protein range 65g to 79g
              My carb upper end 36g
              And my fat would be 144g at the low end and well no need to figure out the high end!
              That brings my calories to between 1700 and 1750.
              this seems totally doable!

              For ease of remembering I am going 70g protein, half that in carbs=35g, double that in fat 140g and for now not stressing about calories, although theoretically this would make them work out right?
              From 12/12 after hyst.

                  - going over on protein was a common struggle..worked on eating 3oz meat per meal to control it
                  - Ruth, you ate pate, a lot.. I know we made it but can not find the recipe
                  - fat fast?? Easy fat dessert choc. Whip. I need to do this again
                  - 3/3/13 I was 278. I am now 330- how depressing is this?? It is this current number I am working on new Macros with.. I will post them in a bit.

                  • The Journey begins with me

                    Ok..I just calculated but then looked and was reminded Chris and I have very similar goals for the lchf.

                    Goal
                    Protein 66g
                    Carb 20-37 (going to keep it around 20)
                    Fat 146
                    Cal 1658-1700

                    Chris, I know you have said the above more than once.

                    That said, today I was over on all but carbs.. But now I feel more redirected

                    Is the eat moar fat thread still active ?

                              Weren't you also making those egg, cheese, and veggie 'muffins'? You could add bacon to them and have those with the pudding and BP coffee. Don't forget about genaw.com for LC ideas.

                              P.S. Like your note to self! We will keep you honest.
