    Now that you're at your goal weight, how have you modified your regimen? Are you keeping to the same schedule, but with increased calories?
    i will back off to 2-24hr fasts and 1200 the other 3 days.

    That's right, I remember now from another thread that this was your plan. It gives you so much leeway, unlike garden variety daily calorie restriction.

    i may even do 1-36 and 1-24. the fasting has really impacted my quad gut so im assuming im hitting that visceral fat around the organs.

    Excellent! To hit the visceral fat is a very big deal.

    Could you elaborate? Unless SCI all of a sudden makes you insulin resistant or spontaneously kills off pancreatic beta cells, you can't just say stuff like that man. People here will believe it without ever questioning it and just pass it off to the next person.

    What do you use to measure your BMR?

    When your BMR rate is cracking how do you know what speed it is at? Kcal/sec? What is the units for BMR?

    How do I determine my BMR and how do I keep it cranking?

    If you want the easiest way to measure yours, go get an RMR test. It takes 15 minutes and will give you a more accurate reading than an online calculator will.

    Not so sure about that. I would agree our metabolisms change and our BMRs decrease due to a more sedentary lifestyle and loss of muscle mass, but I can't find anything that talks about hormonal change when it comes to insulin, just because someone is paralyzed. If you do have something, pass it along, I'd be interested in reading.
