OK so I know the big focus is on Protein but how many carbs do you get in a day? Today I got around 40 and I am 6 weeks out.

My target for calorie intake is 800 calories per day and 65-70 grams of Protein . If I consume 70 gr of Protein, which equals to 280 calories, then the rest of calories come from carb/fat. I stick to not going over 800 calories per day. However, I do sometimes go over 70 gram of protein, which lessens the carb/ fat that I consume that day.

How many calories r u targeting per day.? My goal is to each 1000 calories by the end of the third month, April.. based on what my nut provided. I am not interested in losing too fast. I feel that a healthy variety of foods will set a healthy habit for me in the long run.

I'm 5 months out and try for 1000 calories and 75 carbs. I was getting under 50 carbs but kept getting light headed so I'm upping the carb to see if I was to low. I get 80-100 grams of Protein a day. I don't track much else. Sugar meh I keep low less than 20. No one told me to use these numbers but they are working for me.

It's just crazy to me how little I can eat. I message out 3 ounces of stuff and get maybe an ounce.

Most days I am at 15 carbs or under. Every two weeks I allow myself to have a big carb day which is around 60 carbs. But my body has alway reacted bad to carbs/sugar. I am a sugar addict. If I start to crave sugar/carbs then I know I need to lower my daily intake.

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
