    I can exercise a little, basically just walking at a moderate pace. I'm working on standing up straight and I walk with a partial limp, not from the break but because I have arthritis in my right knee. Not walking for so long left the knee quite stiff and I'm not able to straighten it completely.

    Karin - are you eating a lot (or more than usual for you) of coconut oil? I have heard that a lot of people have to ease into that...

    @Pebbles67, luckily it's not a complicated surgery, but it is one that will mean massive PT for about 8 months before I can return to doing tae kwon do. It will be worth it!

    Gosh - that's awesome, but doing the macros doesn't work for me. I'm a former bulimic, and I have found that once I get too obsessive about calories or ratios, that leads to disordered eating for me. So I'll use the high (healthy) fat, moderate protein, low (starchy) carb as a guideline. I'll probably have an apple with almond butter as my go-to dessert.

    I'm following the thread but won't be joining because I'm about to start the GAPS diet. I just wanted to comment that I've recently had an interesting experience with fat consumption. For quiet a while I'd been getting a lot of my calories from fat but in the past few weeks my carb intake had slowly increased. In the last few days I noticed that I was getting ravenously hungry like I used to get in my pre-primal days. It was getting to the point where if I woke up in the middle of night I couldn't go back to sleep w/o eating something. I also noticed that I was getting irritable. So I decided to see if increasing my fat would make a difference; I just started yesterday and today I already feel so much better. The gnawing hunger went away and I am much calmer. I am convinced that I do much better on high fat. Even while on the GAPS I will keep the fat high.

    Thanks Demuralist for the help calculating

    What I intend to follow:
    protein- 60g
    fat- 95-100g
    carbs- 30g
    that adds up to around 1,200 - 1,300 calories a day

    Thinking I will use my fitness pal to help me calculate this, I have a pretty good understanding of portions and macros but it will help to see it, unless some one has another suggestion

    Will weigh and measure tomorrow when I start ... actually kind of excited, the macros seems very adequate
    Is this still going to work if I am jogging or doing light/ moderate work outs?

    FYI, My router is not working. Due to that and the Holiday, I will be off for a while. Happy Holidays to all.

    well after taking the ACV, I did not have another bout of tummy issues... thank you NW for suggesting it. Sometimes its the simple things we forget that can make everything better. I still have a gallbladder so not sure what the issue was.
