I am FAT, fat, fat, fat ... But it's ok because I read someplace, sometime, by somebody that it's ok to have extra fat when your near the end because if you get sick your body has the extra fat help you recover ... makes sense to me and besides that, 'somebody' has always been my fav doc and never proven wrong..

Have a nice day, think I'll eat another KitKat or two.

Still doin' good. Average daily intake over the past 13 days: 1,638kcal. My total caloric deficits:

Bed-ridden (1936 per day): 3,278kcal
Sedentary (2323 per day): 8,309kcal

So depending on how active I actually am, that would indicate I have catabolized between 0.94 and 2.38 pounds. Apparently "one pound" of fat is equivalent to about 3500kcal.

Only one "bad" day in this two week starting period, yesterday actually. Headache all day, but today was fine. Course by the time you get to 16:00 and have only eaten ~800kcal, yes you do feel HUNGRY. There are certain days where I just MUST eat more than what I would prefer to target, so the daily totals go something like: 1340, 1499, 2065, 1799, 2038, 1680 . . .

When you go into "negative nitrogen balance" with a subcaloric diet you also metabolize muscle.

You headache may be "ketosis" from fat metabolism after glycogen stores are exhausted and you have no current carbohydrate source. It might help to take some small carbohydrate containing snacks more frequently.

Nitrogen balance. Interesting! I would say I'm eating fairly high ratios of protein, but I probably should pay closer attention to that.

My understanding was: some reduction in muscle mass is inevitable to any weight loss process although resistance training with sufficient protein consumption can mitigate it to some extent. Plan for next week is to start adding more routinized physical activity into the mix.

That is a great idea about the small carb snack to combat the headache. I didn't think of that. It was really just that one day where headache hit.

1,708 mean daily kcal intake after 20 days.

At this rate, and without upping the activity level, I'm looking at (approximately) another 203 days to hit target weight goal of 81kg (178lbs). If I up my activity level from "Sedentary" to "Light Exercise" that could reduce time to target weight to 129 days.

At the extreme level of "Amish Farmer" activity level, ~75 days (vs ~490 days at the other end of the continuum for "Bed Ridden" activity level).

So, based on the level of deprivation I've so far managed, and which I feel confident I can maintain, I know my range of slow and fast project completion! Try for the best, plan for the worst . . . I'd say at worst, I will be able to hit target by 8 May 2019 (which is just past 51st birthday), but if I kick in some increased activity, I SHOULD be able to hit target in time for my 51st birthday! :shock:

I'm gonna DO IT! :P
