I don't know if that is you in your avatar but I doubt any kind of carb ratio would cause someone that skinny to lose any weight. I aimed for the 20g range but didn't actually count. I made sure to have no fruit and the only veggies I would eat were leafy greens, mushrooms and onions. Only a little bit of sweet potato once in a while. And sometimes if my boyfriend cooked, lentils and rice. I basically lost all the weight I gained from the insulin resistance caused by my long distance hiking. I only got down to my default normal weight which is not skinny at all.

I was going to use regular salt and then my boyfriend said he had a whole bunch of epsom salt so I used that. It took a cup of salt. I used giant handfuls because it would dissolve quickly. Really left my skin nice.

My feet are too wide for normal shoes and the minimalist running thing is okay, but even most of the minimalist running shoes are too narrow. And honestly, I don't really want a super thin sole. Just a wide, flat shoe. I started with making huaraches and then thought hey, maybe I could make real shoes. The first pairs I just sewed an upper out of fabric and glued it around a flip-flop sole with hot glue. It actually worked pretty well. I was so amazed at making a 3-dimensional object like that I had to keep experimenting.
