WHAT PLAN ARE YOU FOLLOWING - As best a version of Matol as I can get using Ideal Protein or Proti Diet foods.

FAV. QUOTE - “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” ― Albert Einstein

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU - I lost 111lbs about 10 years ago, through Matol. It was easy and healthy. Then a traumatic life event messed up my body and I've not been able to lose since. Only gain. I've tried to recreate Matol before, but it hasn't worked. I've got 20 years or food diaries - Atkins, Fit for Life, strict calorie counting, Keto... you name it. Only Matol worked. As I now face increasing immobility and being pushed for bariatric surgery, I'm doubling down. I see for the first time (geez) that Matol was not only low carb, but low fat and low calorie as well. Somehow I missed that all this time. I'm going to try similar foods to Matol, and strictly that plan and see what happens. I'm on day 3 now. Even though I was in ketosis already, day 2 I had major keto flu and/or detox. I think quitting cheese and eggs is a big difference here, too. With Matol my weight went down down down. Only ever down. EVERY other plan has up, down, around, up, up, down and then nada. The proof in this working will be the numbers being consistently down. I'm here to get support and accountability.

Carb Manager recommends a 35% caloric restriction: 2600 or so/day. Also macros of high fat and higher protein. I'll be doing closer to Ideal Protein and Matol... under 1000 calories, around 30g fat, 100g protein, and max 20g carbs. WISH ME LUCK!
