Doing it by myself I found it too hard to get the ratio right so just went with calories and have about 500 calories per day (I weigh 50-52kg) which, as it turns out, are mainly carbs. That’s because I love salads, curried vegetables etc and can fairly easily cut out or drastically reduce my higher calorie foods. I just wonder if I would still get the benefits of the diet or if I’m wasting my time.
I believe you are just wasting your time. The formula is precise, and if you don’t get it just right you just have a low calorie diet. The easiest way to get it right is to water fast. If you can’t do that, then just don’t bother with trying to duplicate a fast with a makeshift diet.
