    +1 i do not intend to go nearly as low as his cancer recommendation. I have it set as a number i wont go below, unless i find out i do have cancer otherwise i intend to use my BMR as guide to hover on either side of by increasing my fat to totally satisfy hunger. I am hoping that I will be able to use this to learn to eat when hungry and stop when I am no longer hungry which is my ultimate goal.

    I have no intention purposefully eating to the cancer level. I mentioned it in passing only because P 46g 80% fat gets me to the same value almost.

    These last few weeks have been a great experiment & I have learnt a lot but now is the time to get down to the serious business of a long term n=1. As next week is my photo & measure week now would be a good time.

    Apart from weight loss my real goals are 1) to be able to listen to my body & eat appropriately & 2) to be able to have a PB treat in the house & not eat it all at once.

    So from today my n=1 is:

    46g protein, 5g carb, 80% fat = 1020 cals. 16hr IF. 1 tbsp coconut oil taken twice a day as per the Shangri-La Diet (can’t hurt to try as I’m taking it anyway). If my LBM drops after a week I will up the protein by 5g to a max of 62 (1xkg HSIS). If my weigh loss stalls or I am hungry I will up the CO by 7g (56 cals) to a max of 1250 total cals where upon I will re-evaluate my n=1 else there will be no further tweaking for the next 12 weeks

    Thanks again both of you for your fantastic advice & support

    Now I really must stop hijacking your journal

    FF Report

    Wt. 230.2 -1.8 Made it through yesterday on 1079 cals (I accidentally put HnH in my coffee at the convenience store and decided to drink it anyway.) I had energy and mental clarity all day and then worked out at the gym for an hour.

    BS 110, yesterday 106. Notice the jump. Lactic acid from the exercise?

    Con't. FF today, but may have to eat a few more cals because hubs is cooking pork loin tonight.
    I am planning on going through Friday to get 3 solid days in. (This really isn't FF Day 4 because on Day 2 I had a binge that I didn't feel like confessing yesterday.)

    Even with your binge, looks like you're still doing good. WisH I knew more about loos sugar. I almost want to test mine, but I really don't have the justification.

    Hope you have a wonderful day!

    I had gestational diabetes during my second pregnancy (it was a very rough pregnancy I gotta tell ya), and had an aunt who had diabetes, so it is a concern to me. I will start testing when the monitor comes I think.

    I figure, based on Dr EDE's findings, if my FBS is 55-65, then I will be in deep ketosis. (If I have followed all of the other guidelines. ie. Carbs, Protein, and Calories down.). I have about 4 different blood glucose monitors left over from my Mom. This way, I may never have to buy the ketone meter.

    Okay, Today I am tired. Odd because I had another great night's sleep. BTW Great sleep seems to correspond to late workouts at the gym. Going to have a bouillon now and maybe one later.

    1 thing I hate about FF, Feeling nauseous after taking my morning vitamins. Almost lost my BPC this morning.

    could you take them with lunch?

    too bad the monitors you have don't have ketone monitoring ability.
