I know this has probably been addressed many times, but I've been searching for an hour or more and I haven't found anything to point me in the correct direction. And I have some babies to feed, bathe and get to bed. ;) I use my fitness pal and am trying to get in ketosis. I was planning to do a high fat, moderate protein, low carb diet. But I'm thinking this IP plan would be better. I am planning on using alternative products because here is no way I can afford the IP products as our family's monthly food budget is $500 and I can't take up 4/5 of it all for myself. And my husband wants to do it too. Now way we could do $800!!! I have found some good information on products to use, so thanks to everyone who has shared their alternative product advice.

But....for my weight, 128 and wanting to lose about 15-18 lbs, what should my daily intake of calories be? And what should the breakdown for carb, fat and protein be? Percentages are fine too. Thanks in advance!!!

Just follow the sheet. Get the alternative products recommended in the alt thread. No need to track specifically. Let the plan work.
