That would put you at 77kg
154g fat and
39g carb max
About 1800-1900 cals
Ez2cy, I would consider 1,500 basement low, wouldnt go below that except maybe one day a week. You don't want your body fighting back.
Ok......houston.....we have a problem...I've eaten just over 1100 cals today and I'm stuffed!!!!

Okay - I've done the math* and can properly post!
When I entered my calories and percentage goals into myfitnesspal, I selected the 10% carbs (it was that or 5%) and got these numbers:
Fat: 112g (70%)
Protein: 72g (20%)
Carbs: 36g (10%)
Goals: to increase my fat to protein ratio, to survive this cruise I'm doing next week, to not go stir crazy over all these darn numbers!!
*thanks to Pebbles67, who was an enormous help!
On a low day, I eat approx 1200 cals a day. On a good day, I am in the 1500's. I have never been able to hit that 1636 mark that I am supposed to meet.
I posted this earlier today but it got lost back on page 50 so I'm going to try 1 more time for the evening (?) crowd. I just feel like I'm not getting enough.
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. :-)

My thyroid has changed several times over the last few months. My free t4 was 1.75 a few weeks ago. TSH was .39 which is low. Which is right at the high end of normal. t3 was 2.7. Which is supposed to be normal. She did up my synthroid a bit. Blood sugar was 6.4 I think, high but I know that. Lower than it has been. Not sure on Vit D and ferritin but I am adding D3 back in as well as magnesium. Thanks for your experience. Maybe I am on the right track.
You know all those things you have always wanted to do? You should go do them.
