    • Okay - I'm back on track today. The potato bar from super bowl party spilled over into Monday too! but - yum!

      Today - 1 whole egg plus 2 yolks in 2 TB butter -- with garam masala and cayenne sprinkled on top! mmmmmmmmmmm!!!

      I'm making cream cheese clouds when I get home from work. I'm out of coconut flakes though.

      We're leaving on 96 hours for our 5th wheel vacation! wooot wooot!

      • [QUOTE=jenn26point2;1084842]I looked at your diary. I see nothing wrong with the figures for your breakfast, but I do think your overall daily calories is set entirely too low. You can go to "settings", then select "Goals". Once in the goals screen, click on custom to change your goals to be how you want them.

        I'm not sure why you are saying that my calories are set to low? (Just asking)

        It's what it figured out for me to lose 2 lbs a week. (their figures)

          1.1 x weight goal is the same as adding 10%.
          ok, sorry, I thought that the higher number (HSIS x 1.1 or 10%) was if you were not concerned about losing weight or if you were Lifting Heavy Things.

                Bulletproof Tea?? Sounds interesting. Like a tea that gives you super powers.

                Eh Im around about that. I was eating 6 meals a day but recently tried to use myself as a guinea pig for my clients and cut down to 4 meals but better macros. I work as a trainer although I have never eaten this much fat before. It has been working well and I have actually noticed an increase in test levels. I dont eat cocunut/cocunut oil or avocados so ill have to figure out where to get all that fat from. I dont really want to shot more than 4 tbsp's of olive oil in a day.

                Yes im curious to. Training is being kept to a Kb swing challenge. With the addition of hill bike work and some core work (occassionally a lifted weight or two, but whilst in the kb swing challenge im trying to keep other weights to a minumum to test the effectiveness of it as a stand alone tool).

                  How many times a day do you do it?

                    You have to be sure to include the text [ / quote] (without the spaces) after a quote. if it gets deleted, the quote won't work right.

                    I say this b/c I'm eating 1500... What is your goal weight? That's how you determine how much to eat.

                    I don't trust MFP figures b/c they're telling you to eat like 50-60% carbs. If you pay no attention to the numbers on the screen that they give up and only go by the macros you figured with the equation on the first post, then you're good... But I use the numbers on the MFP screen for reference and would go batty looking at inaccurate numbers for me.

                    MFP does not do LCHF unless you set the macros yourself.

                      • Richard, I cannot imagine chugging straight oil. So many yummy ways to get fat! In our LCHF recipe group there is a thread called something like "healthy ways to get fat for NK" and it has 2 links with suggestions for ways to eat your fat. Also, some of the recipes are great sources for that as well. Especially the ones made with cream cheese.

                          See if I understand the quote thing.

                          I was thinking of my target goal as 175 but others told me 150 would be better? I understand MFP does not show you the fat/protein/carbs for LCHF way of eating, I'm just going by the calories it told me.

                          I actually found what I think is a better way to track site in Cronometer. It lets you set up your own macro's ie 70%Fat, 20%proteins and 10% Carbs. It also shows you your daily in both grams and in percentage so I know what I've done.

                          As far as the total calories...I don't know what to say, Cronometer has me set for 1397 to lose 2 lbs/week. ?????

                          Edit; I did the quote thingy...I DID THE QUOTE THINGY!!!!!!! TY TY TY! (little things make me happy) LOL
