    I am very sensitive to carbs and actually go out of ketosis at anything over 25g a day.

    But my body seems to love eating very low carb, so it doesn't bother me.

    I have been researching protein needs. This is what I found...

    Sedentary Adult Female 46grams
    Sedentary Adult Male 56 grams

    Light exerciser .8 x weight in kg
    Moderate exerciser 1 - 1.5 x weight in kg
    Heavy Daily exerciser / athlete Max 2.5 x wt. in kg

    The general concensus was that We eat too much protein and the body can thrive on much less even if you exercise daily without cannibalizing muscle.
    Thanks for this Pebbles, I am a daily exerciser so can now work out what I need....

    I'm not totally sure, but I'm pretty sure. I had a similar amount of protein yesterday as I've had on other days (fat also) but I never got as high as 30g of carbs on other days so I'm thinking that was it.

    Well done on your amazing weight loss. Have you noticed any positive results taking the gelatin yet?

    This is what I try to do on the rare occasions someone notices. "Oh really? It must be my outfit." So much easier, and also, it does not set me up for that weird rebound I have, when I get recognition for losing weight, and immediately start gaining it back again.

    @Rosemary- thanks for posting about the Fat Fast Cookbook. Dana writes great recipes, and I'm going to hop over and get this book tonight. I think it will be a real help.

    OMG IT'S NOT A MYTH. This whole time I've been thinking "don't tell anyone you've lost weight, then it'll be cursed. " Happens every damn time.
    The process is simple: Free your mind, and your ass will follow.

    Some people do better with a percentage of fat intake between 70-80% of calories.
    Not sure how HFLC is affecting cholesterol, but since I believe the tests are flawed, I don't really care.
    Look up the thread "Griff's cholesterol primer" her on MDA

    I do HFLC for a binge eating disorder, cancer prevention and weight loss.
    Hi Pebbles67, I was probably eating around 60-70% fat when VLC, probably overdid the protein, getting around 120-150g per day.
    I have read Griff's primer many times since my Cholesterol started rising 2 years ago. And I understand,I think!, the thinking behind everyone saying with good HDL and low trigs the LDL is likely to be the large, fluffly type.
    But reading various sites, my LDL seems really high compared to most people who post their numbers on here. Also had my Apo A& B numbers checked recently, they didn't come out too well, the ratios weren't good.
