I eat more than those minimums. The only pound:kilo conversion I reliably keep in my head is my own weight. :lol:
Ted Naiman's 1 gram protein per pound of ideal body weight is much simpler.
He has been saying 30% protein would cure world obesity and diabetes before this paper. A good beginner interview to the PE diet. The #1 Solution to the World's obesity problem https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podca...i=1000529446358
Her interview with Marty Kendall also good: How to Optimize Your Nutrients, Fasting and Health Results
The averages we eat now, per DietDoctor (link as above):
The take-home message for most people who hear "eat your ideal weight in protein grams" will mean eating twice as much protein as they're used to, or more. I brought this info to my in-person weight loss group and the reaction was horror. :eek:
I'm not surprised at that type of reaction. Animal protein is the most nutrient dense and satiating macro. It takes a bit of planning and use of multiple sources to optimize how much one really is able to consume. I can understand the shock given the mixed messages we typically see regarding nutrition.
Agree with Rob. My first and only "real meal" yesterday was shrimp and veg stir-fry. Too lazy to use the scale, I used half a 16 oz package of shrimp, 57g protein and 5g fat. :o I've contributed to this same question in another membership group, the reaction to saying that I don’t eat bacon Is priceless. Apparently bacon is required :lol:
I "worked up" to those amounts using Marty's macronutrient course over months. And when I don’t reach the protein gram goal, I look at the Protein Percent for the meal or day. Shrimp or fish with veg or salad is a slam dunk for high protein percent. No way I could eat that much protein in a fattier food.
I have been eating lots of shrimp for years and never knew it had that much protein. I love the fact that where we live you can buy fresh shrimp which is tastier than frozen.
This Diet Doctor advice really struck me. They know plant protein is lower quality. I'm confident that site is backing up their advice with good studies, and this matches my own experience.
In fact, influenced by this thread (and my discovery I can make hot chocolate smoothies) I have been systematically upping my daily protein. Getting 50 grams of protein first thing in the morning is part of a cortisol resistance protocol I have returned to, with good results.
It just makes me all the angrier at all the plant-based everything that is appearing in the grocery store. I only get along with whey protein and that's harder to find that I would ever have thought.
Check out these results from the April 2022 DDF Challenge!!
Some new, some long timers, and the overall results from the entire class!
I feel like I cheated since I did not even participate in this challenge but that IS the ultimate goal.
I have "trained my hunger", know the general TRE window that works for me, have my "optimal 30/30 meals" and can cruise along around my goal weight. The goal for the first five months of 2022 was only to maintain, and restart June 1 when I add in 1-2 hours of aqua cardio and strength….we'll see how that goes :lol:
All so good!!
I'm not knocking it but to me, these numbers seem high and difficult to reach. Do hunter-gatherer diets get anywhere near?
Most people have that reaction at first, know I did. ;) But then it worked so well for weight loss, in addition to lowering my blood glucose, that I was willing to try it. I "worked up" to my ideal amount of protein; first with Marty Kendall's Macronutrient Masterclass, focused more on upping the Protein Percent of the diet.
Addendum to those ranges:
I am tall, 5’9”, have a large frame, and am Way Over 50 years old. I daily IF, and am moderately active (for my age) so 145 gram seems good target for me.
People eating a higher percentage of protein eat up to 60% fewer calories (without hunger). Good article explaining this with the data based on free-living challenge members.
Protein for Weight Loss: How Much You Need and Why it Works
If you are not interested in weight loss, but would rather bulk up or gain weight, there are recommendations for that both in the PE Diet book and Optimising Nutrition, with good recipes for bulking (or so I’m told :) )
There are many good podcast interviews with Dr Ted Naiman in the thread about the PE diet. A new one downloaded today from Boundless Body Radio. He spent some time answering the question how a person eating the more common 60 grams of protein increases it. (Slowly, small changes, what food works easily, like the fermented low fat dairy)
This is really working for me. I'm male, over 50 and currently 105kg - For Q2 I've been shooting for daily protein >125g and <200g per day and shooting for a Protein:Energy ratio >1 - On average (I didn't bring the calculator out for this) i'm ingesting about 1300-1600 kcal per day according to Cronometer and not that hungry. Some days I go wild with hedonistic eating (usually sugar or starch involved) about 4 days last 8 weeks - if you're interested you can track back my numbers here in this thread (yesterday happened to be one of those hedonistic days):
Checking in to say that I hit the 140s today thanks to Marty Kendall's group and you all. 149.8. This is an 8th or 9th grade weight for me (I'm 44 now). I'm loving it.
I know I don't post a lot but I was a member of Low Carb Friends starting in about 2007 and then just kind of a sporadic poster here after that shut down. I lost a big chunk of weight 2008-2010 and kept that mostly off but stalled at about a 28-29 BMI. It's a long, boring story so I won't try to type it all.
But anyways, more importantly, I cannot wait to see what this new Marty and Ted method will bring long term.
Wow, that's great. Appears you are even under your original goal. I never thought I could reach 150 at age 70, but it happened. And I have maintained it! At the link in post #427 you'll see I didn’t even participate, but tips like high protein first meal, or what my own "hunger" really feels like, are running in the background.
here's to long term sucess Beebsbert!! Stoked for you!
Love this statement, as it indicates you are on the path of knowing. Nothing better than that.
Marty Kendall wrote a new article based on all the newer DDF user data on how to maintain the concepts of DDF long-term. As a transition from testing before every meal, to using reminder alarms, to finding the eating window that works for you.
Data-Driven Fasting by the Clock for Long-Term Success

Marty Kendall wrote a good review of The Glucose Goddess a while back. Our library ordered it (not at my request) but I can see how her perky style has appealed to so many on Instagram. I'm not that far into the book, but here's the review:
The third part on How to Flatten your Glucose Curve has ten "hacks" is the crux of her advice.
Is this where we should be posting for Marty Kendall's Macronutrient Masterclass? Or is this thread limited to his Data-Driven Fasting?
You can post about any of Marty Kendall"s programs here, they might all be labeled "semi-low carb" but I spend most of my time on Mighty Networks and a few of his Facebook groups.
Visiting today to share his offer to a free two week trial of the DDF App, and the amazing 2 week results from a new member.
Thanks! I've decided to drop it for now. Too many things going on right now that can't be helped. I jumped in too soon, before I was really ready. Maybe I'll catch it next time.
Update about the Free Trial above...
After taking feedback from all the new trial DDF users, they have decided that the basic DDF app will remain "absolutely free"..continue to use to determine your real hunger signals, learn about BG, etc.
Diet Doctor Podcast #104:
The secret of nutrient density with Marty Kendall
Focusing on nutrient density may be the key to better eating. Marty Kendall shares his data and his approach to optimizing nutrition through nutrient density.
Marty Kendall is trying to help us all optimize our nutrition. He brings his engineering experience and insights to help us rethink how to choose what we eat — and for Marty, the key is nutrient density.
Marty has found through his website optimizingnutrition.com that people can achieve their weight loss and health goals by focusing on getting the most nutrients with the fewest calories. That frequently means eating higher protein diets along with low-energy-density foods.
But what exactly does that mean? The principles may sound simple, but putting them into practice requires a deeper knowledge. Marty and I discuss the key details you need to know to help you decide if this is the right approach for you,
We also discuss how Marty uses blood sugar readings and CGMs to determine the optimal timing for eating. And what about keto diets? Don’t they provide satiety and blood sugar control? Yes, says Marty, but again, the key is identifying the details of the diet that provide benefit.

CORRECTION to previous post!
The podcast sounded fine to me, but there was a sound balance problem with the YT video. So all the links were taken down..here is the new YT link to the DietDoctor interview with Marty Kendall:
And the post on DietDoctor website, under News and Media, now reposted. Sound balance corrected. It a very insightful interview WHY increasing Nutrient Density also increases Satiety, and you lose weight even if stalled on keto/ low carb as I had been. Also covers Glucose-Guided Eating, aka DDF.
My Two years Optimising Nutrition experience, after being stalled a decade on Low Carb. Updates on weight maintenance and food lists in the comments.
DietDoctor Success story: https://www.dietdoctor.com/succeede...-higher-satiety
I have been eating low carb for about 2 decades now. For most of those years I was puzzled by the lack of attention being paid to the nutrient value of the diet. When Marty Kendall entered the scene I was an earlier adopter, long before the nutrient masterclasses or the DDF challenge. I had him analyze my diet when he was just developing his algorithm. I took one of his first nutrient masterclasses when it combined both macro and micro before he offered the DDF challenge. It took me longer to get on board with the DDF method of hunger training but I am on board with DDF now too. I feel very fortunate that I have found a way to eat that optimizes my health and Marty Kendall is a big part of that as are many other low carb folks who came before him. I have lost weight and so much more.
Every time I would make a big adjustment to my eating plan I would track for a few months, to get to know my boundaries. I would always have stellar nutritional intake numbers per the RDA.
I give full credit to Marty's emphasis on protein for helping me realize if I'm hungry, it's because the body wants protein. And that's what I give it :)
In preparation for the next Micronutrient Masterclass, Marty has loaded the ON blog with articles about both the Macros and Vitamins and Minerals that contribute to Satiety. These four articles have the information about nutrient density that Jean used, and the levels that help control weight.

Marty is on another roll. He has been writing new articles and after proofreading, posted FOUR on his blog today. All,interesting, especially the first on Vitamins and supplements…could they be making us fat?
Nutrients: Could You Be Getting Too Much of a Good Thing?
The Perils of Belief-Based Nutrition
The Cheat Codes for Nutrition for Optimal Satiety and Health
Low-Carb vs Low-Fat: What’s Best for Weight Loss, Satiety, Nutrient Density, and Long-Term Adherence?
I need to read Marty's article on nutrients so I am not commenting on that specifically What I am offering is my approach to nutrition. I view supplements as exactly that supplemental. I work to maximize the nutrient density of all the food I eat and then I add supplements to augment the nutritional value of my diet not as a substitute for nutrient dense foods. This is all far from an exact science but I do believe that supplements have their place but nutrient dense foods certainly comes first.
I agree with this, since my own circumstances are such that I seem to have eroded some of my systems with stress. As a result, I do best when I supplement more niacin than I could get from food, more D3 than I can get from sunlight, and more protein than my challenged system can digest without some help.
Nutrient dense foods are the base we build the rest upon.
Every time I've embarked on a shift in my low carb eating pattern, I tracked the first few months, and my profile was always above the RDA. Actual food has other stuff -- beyond multivitamin -- like micronutrients and others yet undiscovered.
The difference between fertilizing with petro vs organic. The artificial fertilizer has everything we know plants crave.
The organic has everything.
