Sounds like you have it all under control.

I've got a batch of chicken bone broth in the crockpot right now and will have a cup of it in the morning. I'll add more water to make up the change in liquids and add a little more vinegar to the stuff.

Hey i just thought, I think someone asked about the smell of cooking the bone broth. Mine doesn't have that smell when I include the veggie clippings including garlic. Also, if you saute garlic and onions while cooking even if you arent going to eat it cause it makes the house smell amazing.

I had a great day today, and I just wanted to say thanks to everyone on here for the advice and support. To be honest I wasn't sure if the whole EMF thing was working, since hunger suppression hadn't really kicked in and I was eating more calories than I had been before. But I weighed myself on Sunday, and in 9 days I lost ~4.5 pounds. As someone who was relatively lean to begin with (and who wasn't even being that strict on macros), that's amazing! Today I was lifting heavier than I have been in a little bit, and I hit a new PR--for the first time ever, I was able to dead-lift more than my body weight (2 lbs more, but still)!! And I've always had upper body strength issues, but I found today I was able to do 4 reps of 90% of a real push-up--forehead touched the ground instead of chest. Totally made my day, so again, thanks to all of you!

Oh and I promised myself a while ago I would buy a Grok On tee shirt from the website once I could do 3 real push-ups, so it looks like I'm almost there!

It can take a bit of time to get your head and body round, but then it's great. Good luck!

Sorry this is a bit late - Time Zone issues

If my LBM loss > 25% of my total loss for the week I will up the protein. Last week it was dead on. This week so far it’s a 1/10th. After 4 weeks I will raise my cals by 50 every 2-4 weeks & see what happens. I'm hoping that by upping the cals slowly over time, the weight will continue to drop (all be it at a slower pace) but the body will be able to get used to accepting higher calories without gaining.
NB: I am also tracking my cals to the nth degree. Every day last week, the weight went down except on Sunday, I ate an extra 100 cals to get the weekly average right – and gained slightly. On Monday I went back to my intended calories, lost the gain & then some.
Not sure if any of this helps but might give you some ideas

I've read something recently about starvation mode. It said the body will burn fat before it burns muscle as that is the way it is designed - it needs the muscle to move around but the fat is stored as future energy. It is only when you get down to really low (single figures) BF% that the body enter starvation mode & the muscle is used as the body needs a certain % of essential fat to survive. This seems to make more sense to me than CW
