Last night I Googled percentages of fat, carbs, and protein.

Every site says something different.

Yesterday was a typical day for me. I did 55% carbs (many sites say between 45% and 65% is acceptable), 28% protein, and 17% fat.

I would like to do fewer carbs. I probably shoud do fewer carbs.

However, that's not a lifestyle I can sustain without bouncing back in the wrong direction and bingeing on carbs. It seems to be working; I'm within the healthy weight and BMI ranges and I don't feel deprived.

I calorie cycle also, but the average now that I am still trying to lose the last few is 1350. I think it will average about 1650 or 1700 for maintenance if my activity level is the same.

I really believe that it is all about finding what works for you personally and what you can live with. I love hearing feedback from others about what works for them and their ideas...new things to try, new ways of thinking. People here are a wealth of info; take away what works for you and discard it if it doesn't.

We'll get it done together.
