Going Straight and some newbie questions

Postby cyberghost » June 20th, 2007, 1:08 pm

Hi folks,

Like a lot of the posters here, I'm coming back - I haven't really gone off plan, but I've had a few weeks where I kept cheating on my diet.

Well, I'm back on course, and armed with a new tool (diet and exercise tracker) that'll hopefully help me stay on course. I just have a few questions:

I think the daily amount of calories and carbs we can have is 900-1000 calories and 80-85 grams of carbs - but I'm not sure how much our daily fat intake should be. I know I'm not supposed to go by the numbers, and just stick to what the guide tells me, but I'd still like to know for future strategic wiggle room purposes.

Also, when I got back on track, I started exercising (which I never did before when I was on plan) - I know the guidebook says it's a bad a idea for the first few weeks, but it's really helped me in curbing my appetite and meeting my daily water requirements - has anyone else felt the same way?

Thanks for all your help!

Based on the new quick start guide, if you have the leanest protein, you are supposed to have an additional 2 fat servings (like 2 teaspoons oil), which is 80 calories or about 9 grams of fat. This is in addition to the fat that comes from your 5 meal replacements.
So, that's your wiggle room (not much). ;)

I have to be careful not to confuse excellence with perfection. Excellence, I can reach for; perfection is God's business.
