How long did it take everyone to not feel so hungry?
I'm on day 8 with good fat marcros but still hungry.

It is different for everyone, most people report a marked decrease in hunger after 2-3 weeks.

My hunger levels fluctuate cyclically. But my hunger is not the same as before I started this. I can let a hunger signal go and I won't get weak or ill. But the change was gradual. Of course I also lowered my carbs gradually too. somewhere between one and two weeks maybe.

Thanks Kymma and Demuralist.

I also seem to remember that for the first week or so, I didn't really pay attention to the calories, just added a bit of fat when I was hungry, it slowly settled down.

Sure, it would work that way, but I don't want to eat up to my TDEE even if I usually burn a little more. I will probably just try to hit the normal Fat Fast protocol for a few days, then move up to 60g protein.

You know what pisses me off...My Mom died of ovarian cancer 16 months ago. I sort of knew that low carb was the way to go and we extended her life a few years, but of course I wonder if we had just gone that extra mile...
Well, cancer risk is my main reason for taking on this extreme NK lifestyle. Hope I can remember that next time I want to binge.

I'm going to try the 0.36 x HSIS this week too. If I'm still losing LBM then I'll move up to the P&V formula longer term.

Excellent, Let us know. I am very interested in your results.
I just worked out the perfect Fat Fast plan for tomorrow. 999cals-90%fat. Today I had 1253 cals-85%fat. Had to have a real dinner or the husband would have asked questions. He will be working tomorrow night, so I will eat while at work and skip dinner.

.36x's goal weight would put me just under 60g of protein (57g), I hit 65 today. I will shoot for between 57 and 60 and see how I do.
