Great if you can read back through these threads, dip into them when there is time. If you can learn through podcasts while driving to family team events, I added a list of a few I liked for a basic intro to The P:E
Kathy is the real superstar in the Ted Naiman world! She is an actual patient of his and experienced the results as he moved advice to a higher protein diet. https://www.dietdoctor.com/higher-p...ike-gangbusters
I have been a DD member forever, but don’t often look at their app…mainly because I am a frequent user of Cronometer for tracking food (the best for nutrient content) plus Marty's two apps, a simple one for Data Driven Fasting and a complex one for Nutrient Optimisation. I downloaded the PE app when Ted was beta-testing it, it is very basic so I continue to watch nutrients on the NO app and use his original simple calculator if I want to check the PE of a recipe.
(Saved to HomeScreen so it acts like an app)
After regaining weight and feeling symptoms of low thyroid, generally blah, after a decade on LC, I was "on a mission" to lose 38 pounds.
i combined the data-driven fasting with Ted's LowEnergy Diet, and Marty's food timing and nutrient optimization tips, but others in the community have started with DDF, then Macros, then Micros.
DD is in the process of changing their food lists to a Satiety Score, the Food Navigator. https://www.dietdoctor.com/satiety/score
It's a new approach, I think by selecting foods above a certain "satiety" score, that would work without tracking macros??
ETA: once you open that article on the satiety score per calorie, there are the sub-categories, e.g. Dairy. Adding back low fat dairy was a huge benefit for me…1. I hadn’t been eating enough calcium, a few other vitamins, and needed microbiome support with yogurt 2. The PE calculator and Ted's interviews showed that IF you want to lose weight, non-fat yogurt and LF cottage cheese are great additions…for me they were like dessert so helped me stay on plan. 3. I didn’t particularly like high fat dairy favored by the "keto" and Atkins food lists. The Ted Naiman Ice Cream recipe tastes great, DD named it High Protein Berry Ice Cream:
or on Instagram find "Protein Fluff" or "Protein Pot" recipes. As long as the low fat products have not added starches or other processed junk, they go a long way to lower calories while upping nutrients...a win-win to lose weight.
