So…. I need to change things up to see some results. I have been doing some light reading on paleo, keto and intermittent fasting diets and like what I am reading.
This week I am going to start “counting” calories and macros. I will try to limit calories to a realistic amount, such as 1700 calories per day. I will be trying to stick to a carb-protein- fat ratio of something like 20%-30%-50% (or less on carb). And I am going to try to limit the hours of the day that I eat to about a 7-8 hour window with a fast of 16-17 hours (generally midweek) with a possible longer fast on weekends.
And I am still very concerned with nutrient density and overall food quality so I am reading this book to get started. I will also be researching more on the set point theory and how others overcome it. Any pointers are appreciated!
