      yea, one 60lb lift a day may not be enough of an excuse to increase your protein.

Also, some of the recipes are great sources for that as well. Especially the ones made with cream cheese.
          Thanks will look now.

          Olive oil isnt bad, just have a drink handy to wash it down and your golden.

            • ah I have no hope of catching up on this thread today LOL
              Sucks to be on the other side of the world to most of you.
              Nothing exciting to report really, since im not officially weighing again till 1/3
              I hope everyone is doing well.

                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. ?????
                That just sounds really low for a guy. What is your current weight?

                I'm currently 186 lbs and eat 1500 calories a day. I lost 11 lbs in January with a goal of 1500 calories, but most days ate closer to 1700.

                • I'm at 211, and like I said, both sites are giving me roughly the same number to lose 2 lbs/week. (that's as high as it will go as well, weightloss/week)

                      I am not doing well with all of this. I had a fibromyalgia flare up a few weeks ago that still hasn't gone away and I am very depressed. I have not been to work in two days. I don't know at this point if the depression caused the flare up or vice versa but either way I am not functioning. Sorry to just whine but something has to give. I just took a walk to try to get out some. It took all the energy I had. I have to go to work tomorrow and I want my life back. I am wondering if adding in carbs that are 'safe', maybe a Perfect health Diet style would help or if VLC is the way to go. I know we are all different but if anyone has had any experience w/ one or both and wouldn't mind sharing that would be wonderful! Thanks for letting me whine
                      My experience-- My fibro went away when my thyroid meds were optimized. Prior to those getting optimized I worked on getting ferritin, vitamin D and female hormones optimized.

                      For me-- TSH must be ignored and Free T4 and Free T3 need to be above midrange of their respective ranges. In fact I feel best when they are at about 75%.

                      With respect to carbs, again for me, going VLC for very long makes my FT3 drop to barely in range. I found myself with low T3 and symptomatic in October when things were tested. Because of that, I experimented and ate a great deal more carbs (didn't track) from the end of October until January. On January 7 I had my frees retested and my T3 was back up where I feel best. This told me I need more carbs in my diet in order for thyroid hormone conversion to work properly.

                      Do you have test results for freeT4 and freeT3? How is your vitamin D, ferritin, blood sugar?

                        Remember, that those 2 lbs a week are based on using CW (conventional wisdom) methods such as eating healthy whole grains. I think I looked up your height and goal weight range for men when you first joined us. I thought 170 was a good goal. Should have posted that, sorry. You don't want to be a 150lb weakling, but a 170lb Primal Hunk.

                        That would put you at 77kg
                        70-84g protein
                        154g fat and
                        39g carb max

                        About 1800-1900 cals

                          any suggestions for a cheap source? -- okay - I'm finding on Low Carb Friends that Walmart has them on the cheap - and most people there cut them in 1/2 making 100 sticks for around 6 bucks. Going to walmart!
                          I haven't been able to find ketosticks at the Walmart on Turner Rd the last few times I checked. Walgreens on River Rd has them behind the pharmacy counter for about $10 for 50.

                            Once on the next screen, input the calorie goal you get using the equations found on the first post. Then adjust to 10% carbs, 70% fat and 20% protein. That is roughly what you want to aim for.
                            Thank you for this info - I signed up to MFP just today and I could not figure out how to adjust my %'s till I saw this post. Very appreciated :-)

                            • Ez2cy, I would consider 1,500 basement low, wouldnt go below that except maybe one day a week. You don't want your body fighting back.
