Now let’s add all of the arithmetic nutrients and vitamins together and see what the ideal numbers should be. I’ll use my own body as an example so you use your numbers. My ideal weight according to body fat percentage is 170-175. So I will use 1800 as my target calories. No matter how I work my numbers I will massage them to total 1800. My CCLL is 50 per the Atkins process. I go out of ketosis at 55 grams per day. I’ve been in maintenance so my actual intake starts at 55 these days, but I’ll use my loss levels. 50 * 4 = 200 carb calories. 1800 – 200 = 1600 remaining.
My protein minimum per PP is 77. I’ll call it 80 for round numbers. 80 * 4 = 320 protein calories. 1600 – 320 = 1280 calories remaining. If I picked the 80 gram level of fat to avoid fat based starvation mode, it owuld be 80 * 9 = 720 fat calories. 1280 – 720 = 560 remaining. So how do I deal with the fact that all of my numbers came out 560 calories short? Well you could just leave your gram levels at that and go 560 calories short for the day in an attempt to brute force everything low. Unfortunately that is enough that the body *can* decrease its metabolism down to match. It might lead to lots of loss, and it might lead to a stall. I expect it would lead to a frustrating alternation between the two.
