Hello, after being dx with fibromyalgia, issues with not moving as much, poor sleep, and meds have led to weight gain. Is there a carb calculator that is available based on age, gender (f) and weight to enable me to figure out best carb range for me? Also, alternatives to running for HIIT? HIIT can be difficult because of pain and general lack of endurance although I have tried it. Can lead to post-exertional malaise for days afterwards. For cardio, elliptical and walking on an incline of 4 to 7 doesn't lead to those after effects. Thanks in advance for suggestions. Would love to also hear from anyone with fibromyalgia that has tried paleo.

" Basically rapid fat loss is in the 50g/day range, modest fat loss is under 100g/day, 100g-150g is maintenance of the same level of fat, above 150 you'll tend to gain fat."
That's nonsense, and everyone knows that by now. Females especially sould not at all (!) restrict carbs from whole food.

Generally you don't need a lot of cardio, and you should be able to do HIIT on the elliptical - if the bike has a resistance setting, set it as high as you can stand it, then over time slowly increase it. Get as much rest as you can, eat foods that help you to recover from your efforts, protein, bone broth, supplement with L-Glutamine post workouts (10-20g as powder). There's no age/height specific carb calculation. Basically rapid fat loss is in the 50g/day range, modest fat loss is under 100g/day, 100g-150g is maintenance of the same level of fat, above 150 you'll tend to gain fat.
