    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?

    yeah, but I am not really going to try to hit that unless I get another cancer diagnosis, which I have no indication I will. What I am going to do though is hit below the 12g, but Net Carbs, and below 56g protein (I did the math wrong up there) then I will fill in with fat as needed to feel satisfied. That to me is reasonable, and allows me to eat when I think my body is asking for food without feeling like I "cheated" and still hopefully being able to stay in a pretty deep ketosis.

    Thanks for doing the math for me So that means essentially that 79% will be my low end on the fat scale.

    let her shovel that always wore mine out. Then they had a nice little pile for a snowman and snow ball fights.

    see, Paula, I didn't really feel any different on FF than before, I actually feel lots better right now, and if I could get a solid week of real sleep, I could freakin move mountains!

    I feel like the FF got me to tjis good point, but that I don't need to continue it to keep getting thesr results. Probably doesn't make any sense

    I definitely think that the FF is what makes what I am doing now doable. And with my new goals, practically easy!
