adding exercise and upping calories

Current BMR 1370

I want to keep losing but not as rapidly as Stage II. Going to target an initial RDI of 1000-1200 cal (up from 500-600 in stage II) and see how it goes. Will start second round of hcg drops on March 27 (probably loading days on the weekend before)

From book:
On a typical day, your “diet” should amount to 100% to 125% of your BMR, consisting of 40% protein, 40% fats (with a 1:1 ratio of Omega 3s to Omega 6s) and 20% carbs (with half coming from fruit).

I've been so focused on keeping my carbs down to 30 grams per day. I am not sure how many grams of carbs I can have now. 200-240 calories worth.... This will be my new challenge to monitor.
143.7 lb Lost so far: 17.8 lb.    Still to go: 18.7 lb.    Diet followed reasonably well.

JGreen34 - this is HCG 2.0 I use drops from InsideOut Wellness. There's a good website and a book. :) And yes, it is similiar to Atkins in that it is low carb. But...there's a lot more too it.
