    I enjoy a pretty regular IF routine of eating one evening meal and fasting-with-coffee for most of the day. I add a small amount of coconut oil to my coffee as a general rule. I seldom get hungry in the mid afternoon anymore -- no more 3:30 pm brain-fog and distraction -- but if I do feel "off" like that, a small spoon of coconut oil perks me right up again. Have no idea what it does to my chemistry, but it gets me through the afternoon/early evening and I don't eat the refrigerator while dinner's cooking.

    Sail on, Silvergirl

    Interesting KWM sounds like it works for you too. I do not fast, but eat 3 reg. small meals, no snacks. I do have coconut oil/cream in my coffee and love it, cook with it and clarified butter, and use olive oil a lot. Still seems not quite enough as my skin is also very dry. Not concerned over weight as I am lower than my lowest goal right now.

    I ran across an interesting formula for figuring your ratios from the work of Dr Jan Kwasniewski author of The Optimal Diet.
    First you figure up your IDEAL weight in KILOS. This is not necessarily the weight you are aiming for but it it your Ultimate HSIS (Hot Stuff In Swimwear) weight.
    HSIS weight in kilos plus/minus 10% = range for protein grams/day
    HSIS weight in kilos divided by 2 = upper end for carb grams/day
    The rest of your diet is fat. HSIS weight in kilos x anywhere from 2 to 3.5 depending on your weight goals (lower to lose, higher to gain)

    Paleobird, Thank you for this, it is such an eye opener!
