    Wowza! You are a wonder woman, you get off track and jump on the even faster fat fast wagon. Shit, that is amazing. We are doing this. I am back on track, but realizing that I need to make some treats until I get back to not being hungry, even though I know it is sugar/mind related.

    I've been playing with some numbers for after the Fat Fast. One of the things I am enjoying on the low calorie plan is the mental clarity. I wondered how low cal I could eat and still get all my macros. No, I am not dropping my cals to starvation, just thinking about Dr Seyfried's cancer work and his low carb, medium protein, low cal tenets. He suggests eating 30% below BMR (for me 1250 cals), which I would do if I had cancer.

    If my carb goal is 20, my protein goal is 60, and I want fat at 80%, then the lowest I could eat is 1600 cals. If I add in 15 more grams of protein, that brings me to 1660 but only 76% fat. I would have to eat 1900 to get back to the 80% fat level.

    Therefore, I see my calorie goals should be nearer to 1600 on non workout days and 1900 on workout days.

    This is me daily but I sure dont see it as low cal. Of course, I am not the power-house workout person you are

    No, it isn't low cal, just lower than I have been eating. At 5'10" 232lbs my BMR is currently 1788. I was looking to see if I could make a program that would be below BMR and still give me enough food.

    I've found that with the circus in town, my body is craving protein hardcore. I was eating fatty chicken and cheese on top of dinner last night.

    Paula, in my journal, I whined because the modified FF (1100-1200 calories) "only" yielded a loss of about 3 pounds (the reasons for being disappointed explained). Now, I don't know if my results are due to being sick or the FF (but I did have at least 1 day before I got sick), but my appetite has suddenly gone down and I went from 165.8 (starting FF weight) to 159 today (10 days). For me, that's a MONSTER loss (I'm lucky for 1 lb a week).

    I guess I'm trying to say that you might naturally find things moving along after the FF at say 1600 calories (which might feel like a lot) without needing to resort to 1200 calories. Just a thought. As I said, not sure if my results can be extended....(although Chris did say, I think, that she too has a decreased appetite).

    Yeah, I just read about the new loss and asked some questions.

    I have no intention of eating below 1600 calories...Unless I get cancer. Sorry for the confusion.

    Yes, I would say my appetite has decreased. But now there is conflicting info for me because I am now doing VLC, and lower protein.

    Using the equations you have been nice enough to find and post here for us...My 30% below BMR is 1302. My lowest protein should be 58g. I have been trying to do 12g of carb, (but I will explain in my journal why that is likely to change starting tomorrow). So that means that if I subtract the carb and protein calories from the 1302 I am left with 115g of fat. Interesting.

    Which is 79% fat. Are you looking at the 30% below BMR due to your previous history?
