Ok, some thoughts on protein.
I have done 9 days at the 65 gram level and have seen no marked change in my FBS. I think in order to reach Dr. Seyfreid's ideal FBS level, the second part of the formula has to be low calories. Dr. Ede got to the ideal FBS and the 4.0mmol ketone level (and was miserable) eating around 1000 cals and 50-60g protein. I do not see that as smart or necessary for me at this time.
**Dr, Ede has not yet posted this week's update...wonder why.
This week I gained 1.5% body fat, but still lost weight. My fluid intake was steady. This tells me I lost lean body mass, not fat. (Ddraig Goch, I'd love to hear your thoughts on this.)
It is my plan to drop dairy this week. Unfortunately, dairy is a big fat contributor in my diet. I am going to allow my protein to go up to 20% and fat to go back down to 75%. Carbs will stay at 5%. I still plan to eat to my BMR (1746) as a minimum calorie level.
Here is a link to the protein levels recommended by several NK gurus. Unfortunately, they do not agree.
