    Sorry, don't know the answer to this. I tend to err on the side of fat, but for me personally, going a little higher (just the amount of whatever carbs I didn't use, probably wouldn't make a lot of difference. I DO think the amount of protein I was eating before PB (almost 3x what I'm eating now) was WAY too much and probably caused at least some of my hunger/cravings.

    Hi all. Stepped away from this thread on Thursday as I was off work Friday and over the weekend. I always get so far behind when I'm away from this thread that getting back to it is very daunting. So I skipped reading yesterday too. I'm 12 pages behind. I think I'll just skip it all and jump back in here.

    Still following the EMF. Reading the Drs' book now. The Art and Science of Low Carb Living. I got the performance version too. I'll read the first one and then when it's time to ramp up for half marathon training, I'll study the performance edition. So far I like what I'm reading.

    Doing well so far. I'm on day 16 of the 21 day sugar detox coupled with EMF and I'm down 9 lbs. I feel it's necessary to give the disclaimer that these 9 lbs were part of the 12 I gained in February when I let myself eat wheat and sugar. But, 9 lbs is 9 lbs. 3 more pounds and I'll be back to my primal low. Looking forward to it.

    I bet you that there is some flexibility there. It looks like another N=1 experiment.

    Paula, try canned coconut milk in your morning coffee instead of black. Once yo get used to the difference, it is actually quite taqsty.
    Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.

    Kwasniewski's Optimal Diet says "Ideal" weight in kilos (140lbs=63.5k so 63.5gr) the trick here is how to define "ideal".
    Phinney & Voleck say :according to this table How to Add More Fat to Your Low Carb Diet for Nutritional Ketosis my range as a 5'10" female would be anywhere from 81-169gr
    Rosedale says:Welcome to Dr.Rosedale's Website Ideal weight in kilos-10% so for me 63.5-6.35=57.15gr


    PLEASE HELP ME FILL IN ANY OTHERS YOU CAN THINK OF. THANKS.
    In the Keto Calculator I use the average of the suggestions of Phinney & Voleck, and Lyle McDonald.

    Lyle McDonald (author of "The Ketogenic Diet"), writes that for overweight individuals who want to lose weight 1.5 g/kg lean body mass is the minimum. More if you train or are lean (see here, it's a good read!)

    Phinney & Volek wrote in the book "The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Performance" that 0.6 g/lbs (1.32 g/kg) of lean body mass should be the minimum.

    For the calculator I use 1.4 g/kg as the minimum, the average of the two numbers.

    I liked your calculator. Kept it simple and easy to understand. Maybe the mods should just link to your calculator and have that be the official formula.

I am NOT yet loving my black coffee, but other benefits are coming to light. I also dropped dairy. This will be a 30 day experiment. More on that later.

    Interestingly, Robb Wolf says that when a client is having trouble losing weight, he asks 3 questions.
    1)Do you use Artificial Sweeteners?
    2)How much of your daily calorie intake is from dairy? (Dairy BTW is a Paleo no-no. So I was surprised that Robb's clients would be eating dairy.)
    3)How is your sleep?

    Here is an article that explains the negatives of sweetener intake.
    The Dish on Sugar & Sweeteners | Balanced Bites | Holistic & Paleo Nutrition Education


    BTW all you stevia enthusiasts. Apparently unless you are using the green stuff made from the ground leaf, you are using what amounts to an artificial sweetener. (Please don't kill the messenger. lol)
    Hello Pebbles67. There is a lot of misinformation circulating on the webs regarding aspartame safety and because I wanted to address that issue, I just finished writing a detailed rapport on this subject: Are There Any Aspartame Side Effects Or Dangers Like Getting Cancer?

    I hope I clarified the subject

Most NK gurus recommend at least 65% (Keeping carbs and protein the same, 105 grams of fat would be 65% with total calories at 1445.)

    Glad to have you back.

    Well - to answer you're question, I'm not really sure! hahaha! When I posted that I was feeling like I needed to shake things up a bit and see if I have better results - but then I started to really analysis my progress since starting the EMF plan. Truth be told --- I think the weekend rum escapades is probably what is keeping me in the stall. I've been stuck in the low 180s for nearly 6 months - but haven't 100% given up the rum. So, now I need to focus on eating very clean and see what happens. But after reading more about the EMF thing I'm leaning towards just focusing on the LCHF for a bit longer. UGH! this is hard.

    So many different ways to calculate and plan......... my head is spinning - which is why I wanted to take a little time away from it all. I need to find what seems best for me and my circumstances and stay with it for a good 3 months. I'm gonna think things through and do some more research and get back to you................

    When I first started the LCHF thing I lost 10 pounds, then things stalled out. But since then I haven't gone without the rum for more than 2 weeks. So --- that needs to be my focus I think, huh? Stay with the same way I was eating when I lost the initial 10 pounds - and stay clear of the rum. We don't have any, and I've asked hubby not to buy any!

    I've had sleep issues for years and going primal/paleo has only minimally helped that. ?
    Salina - I have suffered from insomnia for many years!!! I found this and its makes a huge difference!

    I buy it at Fred Meyers (AKA Krogers) in the health food section. Its pricey - but works - and if you watch they often have it 1/2 off - thats then I stock up! I also use ear plugs because I'm a very light sleeper, and hubby snores! I will sleep like a baby as long as I take the Knock Out, and use the ear plugs! No more insomnia!

    good luck!
