So in your case your goal weight (according to the formula) should be 57.48 kg or 126.7lb
In my case mine it would be 68 kg or 150 lb which is 3 lb higher than my known comfortable weight & 13lb higher than my suspected HSIS but would be a good weight for me to aim for if I didn't know what my goal weight should be

Thanks, Ddraig Goch, I get it now, head is clearer.
Hi all, so last week when I returned from my trip I had dropped several pounds while away but the scale quickly betrayed me and I put on several pounds over the week. This week I started adding more salt in and immediately felt my rings tighten and the scale jumped 3 pounds over night. 3 days later I am down 6 pounds. Crazy, crazy scale. Good news I am back under my initial goal weight. Adding the salt killed my already poor appetite but I am trying to keep my calories up and have started calorie cycling to make that easier. I am regularly hopping on my nordic track for 20-40 minutes plus doing some body weight exercises. I feel great. Definitely feel I am building muscles. I ate a baked potato one day this week. I lost the sucking nickles taste in my mouth the next morning but it was back by evening so it didn't do too much damage.
Hope everyone is having a good weekend. Loved the formula above it gave my a goal weight very close to what I had chosen as my hsis goal.

Re the protein chat we have been having, I have just come across this
Nutritional Ketosis (LC/HF/MP) Challenge Anyone? - Page 6 - Low Carb Friends
While it doesn't add anything it does lay it all out the best I have seen in 1 place
PS Can't remember who mentioned this forum but thanks. After MDA & the EMF thread this is the most useful one I have found

For anyone struggling to work out percentages this calculator does it well. Its an excel spreadsheet. Just download it & input your desired protein & carb grams (these should be fixed based on your goal weight & carb requirements) & your required fat grams (variable) & it will return the fat % & total calories.
PS for anyone interested Rebecca's NK blog can be found at

Small victory report:
Last evening, Saturday night, I watched TV with my husband for a while and even after he went to bed I DID NOT go foraging out in the kitchen for bad snacks. In fact, I had NO snack. For me, this is huge. HUGE
I did think about it a time or two just because I always snack while watching TV, but the thoughts were fleeting. This makes me immeasurably happy I can't even say how happy.
I've been right on point with macros. Eating higher calories than normal. Not much budging on the scale. I might lower calories today, but stay on the macros.
Thank you everyone for all of the information I am gathering here.
