Good morning!

It's ANOTHER fluctuation from Hell!

I'm up two full kilos.

Have to say, I'm getting slightly tired of these crazy fluctuations. These days, it's like nothing is predictable.

I was stressing badly yesterday, and I am sure that is where the biggest factor lies.

I didn't over-eat, though. I stayed in control, but probably didn't make the best choices of foods. I had too much fat, and too much salt, as I was snacking on a bag of pork rinds. I haven't had those in AGES, and I figured it'd be better than sugar (even if fat is twice as calorie dense).

It's ok though. At least my body fat percentage looks GREAT today. lol.

I slept great. I stayed in bed and got a couple of extra hours. I think I needed them.

Today, I feel WAY better. I feel like I'm ready to take on the day again, and good to go. I have my meals planned, and my schedule for the day is good.


Today, I'm thankful for:
- A "pretty" body fat precentage. Thank you, fluid fluctuation! ;)
- A good night's sleep.
- Morning coffee.
- Kitty cat insisting on sitting with me as I type.
- Wife!

Life is good!

BF is the key... You must have loads of water or put on loads of muscle lol. Have a good day sounds like the extra sleep has done you good.

Fat in your diet is very good, the higher the better. I know that sounds contrary but you will learn new science is supporting that. Visit

Deb, I do believe that fat is important, but not the more the better. The right amount will help your body run efficiently, the rest will sit on the love handles like everything else, but at 9 calories per gram where protein and carbs are only 4. :)

A diet high in fat, and low in carbs becomes a ketogenic diet. Its what we all want. I didn't make this up, its from what I've learned from a doctor pioneering low carb, high fat weight loss. The

If you are following low carb, high fat you want 70%, or more fat, 25% protein, and 5% carbs.

25% protein wouldn't support his lifestyle Deb, though I agree good healthy fat should replace a good portion of the carbs if you arent eating them, it should be balanced out by protein for someone living an active lifestyle. Probably somewhere closer to 35-40% protein.

If you're talking about an Atheletic who is not bend on losing weight, that is one thing. But what I am publishing is not MY concepts but that of Andreas Eenfeldt, MD from You want "moderate" protein intake, not high as it can be turned into glucose for fat storage. We on the other hand want to lose weight. High fat, moderate protein, low carbs. That means something different to each person as we are individual.

"while the biochemical pathways for the conversion of protein to fat do exist in humans, the likelihood of it ever happening in any but the most absurdly non-physiological circumstances are effectively nil. No human could consume enough protein for this to happen." -Lyle Mcdonald MD. 'The Protein Book'-----Excess protein does not get stored as fat, it simply passes through your digestive system and is excreted. So eating a higher protein diet while losing weight does NOT harm weight loss, it does however, prevent the loss of muscle during weight loss. I should know, since I lost my first 35 lbs on a high protein diet, and I am now on a high protein diet to lose the next 15.------"Certain amino acids are processed to a great degree in the liver (as I discuss in The Protein Book) and this can produce glucose, ketones and a few other things. But triglycerides (the storage form of ‘fat’) isn’t one of them. I imagine that if protein were going to be converted to fat, it would first have to be converted to glucose and only if the amount produced were then in excess of daily maintenance requirements would there be conversion to fat. But as noted above, this simply isn’t going to happen under any even reasonably normal circumstances. No human could eat enough protein on a daily basis for it to occur."-Lyle Mcdonald MD. 'The protein book'

I would have to be with Chad on this one. Main goal for me is enoughprotein for muscle maintenence, enough fat, and consuming less calories than maintenance on average. If higher fat works for you, Deb, then all the power to you. It wouldn't work for me.
