WOE: N.K.=vlc/moderate protein/high fat
Start Date: Restart Oct 18 2009

The amount of protein has been pretty well discussed and carbs are a given (vlc) but I really haven't seen any discussion on the amount of dietary fat that is appropriate for weight loss.

Let's say a person has a good level of ketosis established via blood testing and is still not losing. Dr. Phinney has been recorded as saying that in that case, dietary fat should be lowered. So what would be the level one should shoot for?
Original start - Feb. 2000 180/125
