    I knew that and don't fault you for doing so... just wondering which equation we should truly be using. I'm sure it's confusing as heck to the newbies to have two possible equations floating around for determining our macros.

    Personally, I like the HarrisBenedict version b/c it allows me to eat more.

    Alright, My Fitness Pal might have been a good idea if I'm actually going to make this happen... because it's way harder than I thought. I normally really like eating fat, but I'm feeling a little nauseated now at the thought of it.

    I'm starting to have doubts about how long I can keep this up, but I'll see if I can stick with it for a little while longer before messing with the ratios. Right now it seems like I can only eat two really small meals before going over on carbs or protein. I thought I'd be alright with things like fatty meat, but apparently I can't even eat two chicken thighs in a day without exceeding my protein limit?

    If anyone would like to friend me on My Fitness Pal, my username is Kotato there too (I know some of you have posted your usernames, but I had a hard time sifting through this thread to find them). Maybe seeing all of your meal will give me some ideas of how to make this work.

    Hmmm, I did not see that being an issue. Everyone should set up their macros with the HSIS formula to start. The BMR calculations are really more advanced for those who exercise heavily or decide to use slightly different fat macros. For example the HSIS formula gives me too many carbs and not as much fat as I wanted, so I recalculated using BMR. Maybe I should not have put the BMR stuff in the first thread.

    I think I'll add a start here note.

    I've been posting here but haven't posted my macros or typical meals. I started out losing weight like crazy and have slowed down. I've only been doing this for 3 weeks and I'm not concerned about the slowdown...I get that it's a process but would like for someone to look over my stuff to make sure I'm not doing anything wrong already. I've made the decision to purchase a blood ketone monitor because I'm pretty analytical and need to know. :-)

    Goal - 90.7 kg
    Protein - 81-99g
    Carbs - 45g
    Fat - 180g



    BF - 3 Omega 3 eggs, 1 piece of bacon. Espresso with coconut milk and HWC
    Lunch - 8oz of pork spare ribs, 5 spears of asparagus, 1/2 c broccoli
    Dinner - 8oz of pork spare ribs, 1 c broccoli


    Yesterday
    Protein - 82g
    Carbs - 7g
    Fat - 161g

    Everything look ok? I do exercise 5 times a week. I either jog or swim laps.
    Thanks in advance for the help.

    According to the information I have gained reading this thread, at my current weight,

    Yes I weigh a lot for now. My question is how much fat should I be consuming a day?
    Thank you and I look forward to day day I can tell you I reached my beach body weight.
    Which I haven't seen since Jimmy Carter was in office.
    OK, well someone may have already answered this, but I didn't want it to get lost so I will give you my answer...

    I am thinking you figured your calories on your current weight. If you go to the first post of this thread there is an equation for you to use your beach body weight to figure out your protein/fat/carbs. Essentially you convert your HSIS to kg, and that is your approx protein intake, double that is your fat and half the protein is your carb intake (all in grams).

    Good luck!

    You are more than welcome, just be aware, sometimes a little TMI gets tossed around.
