Macro targets for Induction? Opinions Please!

Guys! I have been "around" but on the HCG board but i did Atkins back 10 years ago (no idea if i did it "right" but lost 110 lbs over 18 months!) . I think when i did it "back in the day" I didn't worry about too much protein but I think the latest says that you should not get too much


Soooo i tracked my Macros for Day 1 induction they look a but high in protein but tell me what you think:

Calories: ~1400 (too high??)
Fat: 113
Carbs: 13
Protein: 101

Exercise = 30 minutes HIIT cardio on Elliptical

Dr. Atkins always said that you should not overeat protein, and explained in every book that too much protein will be counterproductive, and could interfere with ketosis. People liked to believe that meat was unlimited on Atkins, but it never was.

Now, to your intake today, it does look slightly on the high side, if your goal weight is appropriate. I would probably aim for somewhere in the 70-85g range, but honestly, you're in day one of induction, so your main goal should just be to eat on plan for the next few days, until you're in ketosis. Don't worry about overeating until you're fully in ketosis, and then you can try just eating to satisfaction and see where you land.
