Naypooie - that is a lot of protein, but did you read the part about subtracting anything above your minimum protein intake, dividing it by 2, and subtracting that amount from your fat? That could make a difference.
Anyway - I used this formula yesterday. Today I LOST 2 pounds!
I have been stalled for about 3 weeks, and then I actually gained 2 pounds. Maybe it was just time to lose weight, but I think for me, this is going to be a great tool. I actually compared it to the nutritional values that I was doing when I was on Slim4life, and they are very similar. But Slim had the fat values a little lower, and I found myself always hungry.
Moxie - I think this calculator just wants the total carb amount. I say that just because they would have to know your particular food and the fiber content to be able to come up with the numbers. So on my SparkPeople nutritional tracker I just changed my nutrition goal to 30 - 35 carbs. Then I think I changed my lowcarb goal to 20 - 35.
I can deal with the lower calories (1,159 for me) because I get to eat some fat to chase the hunger away.
I will continue on with this calculator tool, and I will let everyone know how it is going for me. I like the way you can put in any carb amount because somedays I might choose to have 60 carbs, and it will do all the figuring for me.
