    Good Morning, I'm just getting started with eating higher fat. I'm going to try to hit my fat numbers and see how I do. I find all of you to be very encouraging. I intended to start yesterday and caved to a tater for breakfast, remnant of eating taters last week to wean off grains. I've now been off grains since New Years day and feel good about it, so not beating myself up about my false start yesterday. I calculated my formula based on what I read in this thread.

    Starting weight: 150. Goal: would like to shed 10 pounds but ultimate goal is better health. Mom was celiac so I want to see what Primal does for how I feel. I'm 5'4, on thyroid meds, went through menopause over 10 years ago. Favorite activity: walking and hiking.

    Calorie goal: 1200
    Carbs - 30 g
    Fat - 93 g
    Protein - 60 g

    I went to change Myfitnesspal goals but found that these were already my gols, but I wasn't reaching the fat goal. This should be interesting.

    Thanks for motivating me to really try this!

    One week loss total is 12 lbs, but I am still up 2 from before the holidays. My weightloss should normalize next week as I hit my plateau point of 231.

    Yesterday my fat ended up over 80% and honestly, I felt awesome and plowed through a day that kept me out of the house for 14 hours and was full of stressful moments..

    Keep it up ladies!

Stuck in the middle and generally feeling like crap.

    It seems to me that many people who say, "I can't do low carbs. I tried it and felt awful" perhaps could have gotten out of that Zone of Misery by dialing back the protein a bit. Maybe a filet mignon instead of a porterhouse for dinner.
    Hello Jen!!!!

    I am also trying to realign in the protein department. It is hard to get the macros right, but once I learned that protein can be converted to glucose, it made sense not to eat too much.

    I am glad I am in an experimentation and acceptance phase, it makes all of this finagling of macros and getting into the zone so much less stressful. What I love about LC and keto is my appetite doesn't rule me, so I can work on the macro balance without being in a funk, like I was for years with calorie counting, hungry, fat, and frustrated.

    This might also be known as a rump roast. Make sure your butcher or whomever knows you're not looking for a ham, which is also part of the pig's butt.

    Cori.. I am going to try that recipe. I made Marks carnitas he has on the site this week.. AWESOME!!!

    Down 5 pounds this morning. Whoop!

    Planning my days more carefully so I do not go over on protein and carbs. Protein seems to be the issue more than the carbs. Weird!

    Hi Calee, I'm also 5'4". Over the past 2 years I've managed to come down from 244 to 130. I have little idea what a 5'4" woman should weigh. I've Googled it and got a spread of 119 - 140. Do you have any idea? Also, I've been floating around 130 lbs for about a month now. I had great success with the potatoes only diet awhile back. In 7 days I lost 8.2 lbs. This last 5 lbs I think I should lose just moves up and down a quarter lb. each way. Thinking about raising my fat percentage.

    I am skipping my workout today. I have to leave work at 1 for dentist appointments. It's 12:40 now. Won't get lunch either... will sip my Herb Ox as I feel a headache coming on. Day 2 of the detox (after my dance with sugar this weekend) is what I'm blaming.
