For those with time on their hands
I found a keto calculator today - it's supposed to give you your macros for a ketogenic diet. I tried it out for a bit of fun but the carb count was too high for me & you can't change it. It's quite slick at working out your 'BMI though if you are into that sort of thing:
I also found a calculator to determine how much water you should drink. |nterestingly, for me it was spot on my minimum:
Hydration Calculator: How Much Water Should You Drink Today?
UPDATE: sorry I was wrong, you can change the carb count on the keto calculator. Its also very good for converting weight & height from US to metric if you need to

Regarding the shoes and barefooting...my doc wanted me in padded shoes, not necessarily arch supports, my home had all tile and wood floors. AFTER it was healed he wanted me barefooting mostly in sand (I lived in Florida at the time-so the prescription was to do a lot of beach walking).
My DH now likely has too much scar tissue for surgery, which he wouldn't submit to anyway.
To my doc, the thing was that while you sleep (or rest) you are healing, you need to make sure your foot is at a 90 degree angle to the leg, or smaller while you are doing either, because if you step down on it after it has started to heal in a shortened position (greater than 90 degrees) you re-rip the fascia and create a bit of scar tissue. The less often you do this the better. Anything you can do to reduce or eliminate inflammation is also a good thing.
I re-calculated my waist measurement and it's actually 37.5". Like I've said before, I have trouble measuring my waist. To figure body fat percentage, I went by the calculations and photos. I looked at the pics first and figured I was somewhere between 25-30% The US Navy has me at 52% and I was like WTF? You can tell it didn't take into account muscle or build. When I went by the YMCA calculator, it had me at 30% which is pretty much right where I felt like I should be at. The last time I had my body calculated was in 2011 and they said I was at 37% using one of those handheld jobbies.
When I used the keto calculator, it is showing I should be at my goal weight by Aug 20, 2013. That almost seems fracking unbelievable.

But, also, I plan to be at 177 WAY before May 15, so we'll see how this graph actually plays out.
