am hoping someone can help with some advice . I am new to the Fast 800, although I have tried the 5:2 and paleo/low carb/IF etc in the past with good results & have always eaten fat (butter;cream full fat milk etc) and avoided “lite” “sugar free” fat free” stuff but just seem to have added too many carbs to my diet recently !
I started just over a week ago and now have myself more organised have bought the books etc. Weight loss so far is 4lb I need to lose another 10 – 14 lb . Mind you, I feel that I look as if i have lost more than 4lb which is strange !!
I am aiming and succeeding at keeping carbs below about 40g & some days even below 20g, Protein around 55- 60 g but struggle then to have enough fat ( I think ) for example today I ate 2 hard boiled eggs with a little mayo/mustard and a few pieces of chorizo for lunch 297 cals ; 15.5 g protein ; <5g carbs; 22g fat and later having half of a Easy chicken tagine recipe (from the book, totally delish btw) = 447 cals 17 g fat and 27g carbs and 41g protein . I might be able to fit in a coffee and cream later and that makes the fat about 41-43 g which is actually better than I’ve managed on previous days because if I aim for 60g of protein I then sacrifice the fat!
Am I doing something wrong and how much fat should I be aiming for whilst on the 800 a day ?? I have tried to find this info but haven’t so far.
