Didn't you eat less fat this morning?
03-15-2013, 01:37 PM
^Yes, significantly less fat. I drank lots of water before shopping and felt better. After my salted nuts and coffee, I feel almost normal.

Huh. On a related note, by dropping dairy, I have cut my saturated fat by 60%.

Glad u feel better.
Are you now suggesting sat fat is bad?
03-15-2013, 04:19 PM
No. But Dr. Rosedale says one should limit saturated fat for the first 3 to 4 weeks until well into fat burning mode. His theory is that your body is trying to burn its own sat fat, so adding sat fat in the diet is unhelpful and might even hinder weightloss. Trying it out even though I am not sure I believe it.

Interesting. On the weight, that would make my ideal weight 125. I know I haven't weighed that as an adult. I was surely a child. It's actually probably a good weight, not that I think I'll get there. DH, who is the same height and same wrist measurement, is 128, and he has some muscle. I'd be thrilled at 140 and ecstatic at 130 (which is what I'm aiming for). Someday....

That would make my ideal weight 135. Not doable, at my skeletal lowest after the doc put me on speed for a month i got down to 140 and looked like death warmed over, literally.

But the only purpose of the ideal weight is to find the correct macros for weight loss. I'm aiming for a muscular 165. I doubt I'll ever see 150.
Wt. 224.7 -1.6
FBS 93 down (LHT again, Rosedale ideal 70-85)
Ketones small to med, same
Macros 75/20/5 cals under 1400
Going to see "Les Miserables" tonight!

Oh, I know that. It's just funny to think about. Tonight sounds fun!

So if I use the 135, I end up with 61kg which would drop my protein down to 56g, pretty much where I have been actually eating.
