@dlajnef , with you saying that I'm curious how much weight are you looking to lose and what are your current calories?

I have probably 30-40 pounds to lose. My phase 2 macros starting today are 1453/122 fat/ 79 protein. Now I’m curious what made you ask! 😀 ( My phase 1 macros week 5 were 1532/129/82)

Hi Soberketodad!

thanks for the input. Very helpful for me to hear other people’s experience. I am in week 5 and week 6 starts tomorrow. So it sounds like I should move to the new macros and see how I feel. Congratulations on your success with the program! 

Hi @dlajnef !

So did you decide to do week 6 in phase 1? Just curious. I was so eager the first few weeks to begin the second phase, but by the time week 6 ended, my mindset had shifted nicely to a more patient and long-term pattern--realizing that DSK isn't really a 90 day program but reflects instead what type of changes we want for our body. So now I'm focused on achieving my ultimate weight goal (by whatever day that takes) rather than feeling pressure from an approaching 90-day deadline. Not keeping an end-date in mind makes any fluctuation in the scale readings easier to mentally handle 🙂 Just one day at a time, one macro adjustment at a time.

Thanks!  

Hi! I’m not going to go to my week 6 macros but I stayed at my week 5 ones a couple extra days. I had one workout where I felt weak and almost couldn’t finish. Thought it was a fluke bc I usually work out in the morning and this one was in the evening. But when I felt the same at my next morning workout, I knew something was up. So I’ll move to phase 2 tomorrow. I’ve settled into a similar mindset...one day at a time. Thanks for your help. 

I think one of the best benefits of this program, and the ketogenic diet in general, is the awareness of our body's needs that is restored. I had become deaf to my body's signals for hunger, rest, and nutrition but now I can hear much more subtle suggestions. Knowing how your body typically responds to workouts and seeing a difference and being able to make a decision based on that information is a valuable tool that I wouldn't have been capable of accessing while eating a Standard American Diet. 

Wish you the best of luck for your phase 2 journey!

You sound like me now. I'm always curious as to how people think and how things work. lol

I was curious because if you had a decent amount of weight, I would have you go to onboarding now and not start phase 2. Since you know your protein threshold currently, you would use that fat percent as you go through on boarding. 

However, there is another train of thought you have to think about. How long do you want to stay tracking like this? I only ask because when I was in this program, I was really wanting to not track near the end and while I was off boarding. 

I just wouldn't suggest going into phase 2 while thinking that you will need to do onboarding when your calories get to low. I would go to onboarding now if that was the case.

I guess I always take this one phase at a time bc there’s so much to take in, so I don’t even know what offboarding is at this point! I assumed tracking was going to be a part of my life forever, and it really doesn’t bother me at this point.

So, how do I go to onboarding? I did it before starting phase 1 to build up my calories, so same thing I’m guessing. And how long would I stay there ? Or would the spreadsheet calculate all that for me? So glad I asked.

You are correct, it would be the same thing for onboarding. I would stay there until you start gaining consistent weight or you feel like you are struggling to get in all the foods. 

I would start with the macros you have now with the fat percent you like best.
