My plan:

My plan:

Protein: minimum 100g/day. Ideal 130+g/day
Carbohydrate: Beginning Jan 1, minimum 15g/day, less than 50g/day. Subtract fiber grams only.
Fat: as desired of the following:
  • Coconut oil (and other tropical oils)
  • Butter
  • olive oil (not for high heat cooking)
  • Nut oils (avoid for high heat cooking)
  • Bacon fat (minimal unless bacon nitrate free)
  • animal fat (fresh)
Total calories: 1200+ per day
Intermittent fasting: 24h Jan 1, 2007, as desired.
Exercise: minimum 3X/week
  • Cardio: walking daily, starting minimum of 20 minutes.
  • Strengthening/toning: Body For Life program
Processed foods: minimal use
Grains: minimal.
Corn, canola, soy and other "industrial" oils: do not use.
HFCS and trans-fats: check all labels and avoid whenever possible.
Artificial sweeteners: minimal use. Mainly use oligofructose (Sweet Perfection brand)

I base my plan primarily from Protein Power Life Plan (2000 edition) with strong influence of Dr Atkins New Diet Revolution (?1992 edition).
