Default Fat and Protein intake

Hi Everyone!

I'm stalling a bit, and looking for info on what the optimal fat and protein intake would be? I cut out all diet sodas, because I thought they might be part of the problem. Does anyone know if there is a formula or something somewhere to help determine what is optimal?

Oh gosh.... I don't have my book handy. I just know that you can have unlimited protein and fat (until you are full) and YES... I found that SF drinks really slowed down my weight loss. I started drinking water most of the time and then treat myself to tea and started losing weight alot faster. SO try more plain water... that might work

How far are you into the program? Are you still on induction? Just after induction, I had a slow down for a week or two, but then it picked back up.

I'm just a week and half into induction. Iftheninfo is in the book, I'll look for it in there. I was getting some conflicting info on how much you should have, in order to keep you body in ketosis. I'll keep those things in mind, and THANKS:-)

Considering it's still pretty early on, I'd say just keep going. I'm ending week two today and have seen only a pound lost in comparison to 11 during the first week. I'm going to ride it out and hope for a bigger loss in the coming week.
