    Ayla thanks, I think my look great in swimwear goal weight is about 66kg. To be honest not sure if that is the number I plugged into the formula on page one the other day or not. I seem to recall I used 136 lbs but I am pretty sure that may be too low for me. I have a medium frame and used to be 5'10 before I started shrinking not sure how tall I am now 5'9 possibly 5'8 haven't measured in years. Shrinking due to horrible posture but noticed I feel significantly shorter than my friend who says she is 5'10.

    I was a size 6/8 at 185 pounds but I build muscle really easily and I used to work out all the time so I had a lot of muscle at the time. Now not nearly as much.

    More info. than you asked for lol

    No worries LOL

    OK so:
    66 g protein = 264 calories
    33 g carbs = 132 calories
    rest equals fat.

    I think I had to work out my BMR first (google for a calculator), then I minused 500 calories off to get the total calories I would need to have with a deficit.
    God I hope that makes sense and I got it right for you.

    Ayla, I sometimes wonder about the "non-food" sources of fat (ie. bullet proof coffee). I concentrate on the food first, then use those fats to hit the macros. But really there isn't much difference in cooking in a T of butter and putting it in my green tea.

    Cream cheese is a nice source of fat, I mix it with chopped olives and minced garlic and use it to slather on celery pieces.

    If you would rather not use that, like I chose to not to do, google has 2 scripts already available. Go to Extensions again, scroll to the bottom and select "Get more extensions" (or whatever it says) and choose the ones you want. I chose MyFitnessPal Food Diary Percentages. It shows percentages without doing net carbs or requiring you to pay attention to fiber. I like it MUCH better.
    I use the phone app most of the time, but do like the option to see things on the website as well. Thanks for mentioning these. I had the net carb extension showing the graph but installed the other two available. It's great to have options!!

    Yesterday was a bit of a higher calorie day for me. I cleaned out our fridge (and attached freezer), pantry and cupboard, tossing most of the non-primal foodstuffs (or bagging them up for donation). Scrubbed the fridge and freezer so they're sparkling, and rearranged the shelves to better accommodate things. I also did a variety of exercises: walking lunges, pullups, pushups, dumbbell rows. No real plan, just something rather than sit around in the afternoon. But then I was HUNGRY! Went over on calories by almost 500! Macros weren't too bad though at 10/17/66.

    Have a great week, everyone!

    Ok, results from week one of being back on plan, please remember I had some stomach issues and was not able to eat as well as I would like and definitely "detoxed" my colon:

    1/7 SW: 233.8
    1/14 CW: 226
    -7.8

    I also ate a lot of inflammatory foods during the holiday (wheat, sugar, some rice), so some of this is inflammation weight. I saw 225 on Sunday morning, but I have come to expect going up after a low before coming back to it. I am hoping to be at 225 by next Monday.

    Having a great fatty breakfast, since I am OVER Eggs:

    1 c canned coconut milk
    1 avocado
    stevia to taste
    2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

    Calories 667
    Carbs 27/net 11
    Fat 60
    Protein 8

    Still trying to finish it, so I am thinking this mama jama is a breakfast and lunch smoothie!

    Yesterday was low on actual food - but I had 3 cream cheese clouds in the evening to make up for it!

    1085 calories
    fat - 70%
    protein - 17%
    carbs - 13%

    I think thats just too much fat cuz I have a bit of a tummy ache and too many bathroom trips today.

    Weight - 179.4

    I'm enjoying a wonderful cup of homebrewed broth! burned my mouth on the first slurp - grrrr!

    On Dec. 28 I was 185 - today 179 so I think I can safely say I've lost 6 pounds since starting the EMF plan. I'd say thats pretty good for 14 days.

    Keep up the pace people we're making great progress!!!!!

    I found this:

    bone broth - 1 cup = 40 calories, 3 grams fat, 3.6 grams protein, 0 carbs.

    In case you're wondering as I have been.

    I'm a tracker and I like to get it as close as possible so I know exactly where I am. That way if it isn't working I know what needs to be tweaked. Besides - I love charts and graphs It makes the weight loss process a project!

    I am still wondering lol, but have not yet decided what is right. But I will stick to this way for another 2 weeks like I planned, then re-evaluate
    Ive looked at cream cheese, but they have all got some kind of additives and thickeners, so I decided against buying. I did buy sour cream, which is just cream, so I can use that with stuff.

    Wow you are doing great!

    Well I lost 500 g this week (1.1 lbs), and 2 cm off my waist (not quite an inch)
    so in 2 weeks thats 2.1 kg (4.6 lbs) and 5 cm off my waist (almost 2 inches).
    I guess that is not too bad
