This is basically Eat Fat, Get Thin in a nutshell.

First of all, you need to figure out your lean body mass. There are calculations in Protein Power or google on the net and find a good formula.
After you have found that, then you divide it by 2.2 to get the kilograms of
weight. Then you multiply that number of kilograms by 1 to 1.5 grams to find the correct amount of protein grams that your body needs each day.

For example, if my lean body weight is 100 pounds..divided by 2.2, then it is 45 kilograms. Multiply that by 1 which equals 45 or 1.5 which equals 67 grams. So, my range should be between 45-67 grams if I am not a bodybuilder or an athlete..Men will have a higher number, of course.

Once your protein requirements for the day is figured out, then Barry says
you can eat up 60 healthy veggie carbs/dairy (and a bit of fruit, if you wish) to stay in ketosis...Everyone is different on the ketosis. Barry says that you don't have to be dark purple, but you need to feel the effects of ketosis (no terribly hungry all the time).

Fat is what does that for you. The fat in your meat and dairy will help to
satisfy your hunger. Olive oil and coconut oil are also great fats to consume.

Your percentages should be 15% carbs/20%protein/65%percent fat..These are ballpark figures.

Some people cannot eat 60 carbs (these aren't net carbs), so they will go lower on the veggies.

Barry and his wife eat larger breakfasts and lunches and have a smaller meal in the evening.

And, fruit needs to follow the meal, not eaten with the meal.
