I am new to this site and think this is just what I am looking for. I have been on hcg and have lost 17lb. I am going into P3 in 6 days. I think this approach would be perfect. I still want to lose 10lb but according to the protocol I need to maintain for 3 weeks by eating plenty of fat, some protein and lc.this sounds perfect. my question is how do I know what my lean body mass is. I am 5'4" weigh 130lb.

This is for maintenance but what if I'm trying to lose weight? I'm very confused the more I read!

Thanks for the help!!

Can I get the recipe for coconut oil bark? I really want to try eating more fat, my thinking has always been low fat protein! When I eat bacon and sausage I think of eating low fat the rest of the day. I've been trying induction for awhile with no progress.

Unfortunately cancer knows no boundaries. No WOE can completely defend your body against cancer. Even Vegans can get cancer. I do believe that certain WOE can help. Anything beats the SAD diet for sure

Really?

Help me out by explaining foods to avoid? I was regimented for a week or two in following advice from threads and gained a lot of weight. I ordered the book has not arrived.

as it says in post #3 in this thread:

The basic rules for EFGT are:

1. Eat Real Foods

All the foods you need, to provide your body with all the nutrients it
needs, and you with the pleasure you need, can be found in the meat,
cheese, dairy, fish, and fruit and vegetable departments of any supermarket.
You may have to add butter and other fats as meat today is bred so
lean as to be tough and tasteless. But even this is far healthier than the
junk that is beginning to be sold for the ‘low-carb’ market. And don’t be
afraid of eggs: they have a nearly perfect balance of nutrients, and are
excellent dietary sources of protein, vitamins, minerals and trace elements,
and essential fatty acids.

2. Reduce your intake of refined carbohydrates . . .

You can eat as much as you want of any meat, fish, poultry, cheese,
cream, butter, eggs – indeed anything that is high in proteins and fats and
low in carbohydrates.

You can eat as much as you like of green leafy vegetables:
cabbage, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, broccoli, lettuce, celery, and so on.

Although it is advisable to cut out altogether if possible some carbohydrate
foods, such as sugar and cereals, it is not necessary to stop eating
fruit and vegetables, merely to cut down on the sweeter and starchier
ones. It is necessary only to reduce the amount of them you eat so that
your total carbohydrate intake is no more than about 50-60 grams a day.

3. . . . but don’t reduce carbs too much

The object of eating this way is to reduce insulin levels in the blood by
changing your body from using glucose from carbs as an energy source
to using fats. To make the changeover, it is necessary to reduce your carb
intake, while increasing fat intake.

4. Replace the carbs mainly with fat, not protein (See Chapter 13)

The propaganda against dietary fat has been powerful and relentless
during the past twenty years. You may still be very frightened about
adding more fat to your diet, particularly if your doctor has told you that
you have a high cholesterol level. Don’t be. You will inevitably increase
the amount of protein in your diet to some extent but you should not
overdo it. For you to be healthy, your main source of energy with this way
of eating must be fat. A high-protein diet in which both carbs and fat are
restricted is probably the least healthy diet of all because your body will
continue to use glucose – which we don’t want – that it will make from
the protein, and it doesn’t like to do this except in an emergency. It
certainly isn’t healthy to use protein as a fuel long term.

5. Leave the fat on meat

6. Eat a high-protein breakfast

It is essential that you start the day in such a way that your energy levels
are sufficiently high that you will not want to snack between meals, and
your brain has a constant unvarying supply of energy.

7. If you are overweight, don’t try to lose more than 1 kilo (2
lb) a week

It is dangerous to lose weight too quickly, particularly if you are only
moderately overweight. Be patient: on this way of eating you may not
lose weight quickly, nor should you try to. If it took you ten or twenty
years to put the weight on, it is unrealistic to think you can lose it all
safely in a few weeks. Large weight losses are always followed by a
‘stall’ when you don’t lose weight for weeks at a time. This is demoralising
and the reason why most people stop any diet and start another one –
usually with the same result.

8. If you are not overweight, don’t try to lose weight

9. Get the ratios right

For the best of health and for weight maintenance research has shown that
you should try for the following ratios of the three macronutrients:

Carbs – 10-15 percent of calories
Protein – 15-25 percent of calories
Fat – 60-70 percent of calories

Fat

It has been so many years since I have eaten meat with fat on it, that I had forgotten how much better it tastes. I fell prey to the "eat as little fat as possible on your meats" for so many years and slowly packed on the pounds and went on diet after diet. I am going to save a lot on meat. It is so much cheaper.

Good morning!

First day started back on plan 8/30. Coming back from a 24hour stretch of not sleeping I should have expected no loss on the 2nd day weigh-in. I really am beginning to believe that if I don't get the sleep I need the scale won't go down either. Today I am happy, down 1.8 so am encouraged to continue...

Have a great day, take care!

Not sure where this needs to go but I need help!!!

I am getting REALLY discouraged!! I started a low carb, low far, high protein diet one month ago today...the first week I lost 8 pounds! Since then I have lost nothing! I drink a protein/whey shake for breakfast and lunch and have either a small salad only using the tines of the fork dipped in dressing, for dinner I eat one of the low carb recipes i have found on here. I exercise 4 days a week for 30-40 minutes either running, elliptical, bike or the 30 minutes work out at Planet Fitness. I drink 40 oz of water a day ( I know I could do better).
I am starting to think maybe this is not the right diet for me but 2 years ago when I went on it I lost 35 pounds!! HELP friends I need some positive reinforcement! Tired of people telling me I dont need to lose weight anyway...I do though! I am 5-2 and weigh 162! I am very athletic so I hide it well!

You mentioned you eat low carb + low fat + high protein.....
perhaps you could up your fat a little and lower the protein.
Hope you are still researching this one...

WOE: Low Carb EFGT
Start Date: January 19 2016
Hi all,

I'm a newbie here. Was so glad to find this thread with percentages for carbs/fats/proteins! I've been kinda winging it on low-carb since Tuesday. I use the Lose It App. It pre-determines daily calories based on ht/wt, but I ignore that. It has a really cool feature that lets you look at your day with all 3 categories broke down into percentages. At first I was mortified to see how much fat I was taking in (50-65%), but now I see that, for the most part, I seem to be following EFGT pretty well! I've lost 5.6 pounds since Tuesday (I know first week's can be crazy big numbers so I don't expect those high numbers every week).

I briefly tried Medi-Weightloss last year, but they are all about quick huge losses and even with the low-carb they were extremely restrictive calorie-wise. It just wasn't something I could do long-term as I felt extremely deprived.

Again, so glad to find y'all!!!

"...when you eat protein and carbs, anything excess is converted to fat. Carbs are the worst when it comes to releasing insulin and getting your body to store fat. Protein isn't as bad, but eat too much protein and the body converts it to glycogen (sugar), which releases a bunch of insulin and again you get stored fat.

But, by eating enough fat (is it 60-75%??), your body gets the fuel it needs, but fat doesn't convert well to fat since you do not get that needed spike of insulin to put you in "store the fat" mode. Plus fat satisfies your appetite better than carbs or protein, so you are not likely to overeat. So, by eating fat you end up losing weight."

Or maybe it's this...

WOE: Stillman diet/flexibility on weekends
Start Date: 1999 (Atkins) Lost most of my weight
Hi, just thought I would jump over here and say hi to all of you fine folks. I've been trying to do JUDDD as of late, and many of my friends over there have had great success with the diet. It seems though it is not enabling me to lose 10 lbs -- I also was having terrible carb binges on "up" days. Most of my earlier progress had been on Atkins and then a ketogenic diet. About three years ago I started gaining weight, and during that time tried a million different things to lose but nothing worked. I finally found out I was severely hypothyroid and needed meds. Once I was medicated, I lost the 14 lbs I have gained, but for the past year I've been stuck right around 130. There was a time I maintained 120's pretty well, but I can't seem to get back there...

So I'm wondering if jacking up the fat and lowering the carbs once again could help. For the past two days I've been eating butter and eggs only. We will see where this goes!

Barry is Barry Groves, author of Eat Fat Get Thin.

I think it is possible to get really slim. How old are you, Julie?
Unfortunately for me, I am 58 and well past menopause, so I must also cut some calories.

And I don't OVERDO the fat. I keep carbs to 20-30 grams per day and protein is low. Then fat to satiety, but I watch that, too.

If you are young, you will be able to eat more!
