How to eat enough calories on a high protein high fat diet?
Avocados can push up your calories quite a bit as they pack in over 300 calories each. They are also quite filling. To increase your diet with some healthy fats, try adding coconut butter to your coffee. You could also add extra virgin olive oil to any leafy greens you might eat. PB is great, but often has about 5 grams of sugars (depending on the brand and its processing). If you incorporate one avocado, 2 tbsp of coconut butter to your coffee and 2 tbsp of evoo in a day, that boosts your calories up around 700 calories ---which would be nearly half of your daily caloric limit of 1500 calories per day.

As to the amount of fat to consume, it really depends upon your plan. Many people turn to the iifym site to establish their macro-nutrient limits. If you've decided your daily caloric intake should be 1500 per day, it might be easier to calculate the fats and protein you should aim for if you are clear on the daily limit you've set for your carbs. As you probably already know, one gram of fat is equivalent to 9 calories. A gram of carbs is equal to 4 calories. If you are limiting yourself to 100 grams of carbs per day and you eat your weight in protein grams (ie., 175 pounds=175 grams of protein), then you would need only 400 calories of fat (or roughly 45 grams of fat) before you would max out your daily calorie intake of 1500 per day assuming you weigh 175 lbs. 45 fat grams does not really seem like a high fat diet to me. But, again that would be higher if you keep a lower daily carb limit.

How do you prevent loose skin?
Have you tried wearing compression clothing coupled with strength training? I've heard that surgery is really the only way to remove lose skin, but I think you can improve the appearance of it over time.

hair loss please help :(
I was battling a lot of hair loss from November - February. Went to the doctor and all blood tests were normal. Really received no diagnosis for the reason behind the loss from a doctor. I believe that I improved my diet, but had cut my calories perhaps a little low in light of the amount of exercise I was doing. My average caloric intake has been slightly higher since February and the hair loss slowed to minimal. Unfortunately the weight loss has also slowed too. You might want to try increasing your daily caloric intake to see if that improves the matter.

Running Shoes
Also, as far as a lesser expensive brand, my son runs in a zero drop shoe called ALTRA. They are great shoes but I don't know that they will be great for high arches. Nevertheless, they are a little less expensive than what I have seen on Brooks.

Running Shoes
Go to running store and be fitted professionally. It makes all of the difference in the world.

I run in Brooks Adrenaline 14s but I have a bit of a wide, flatter foot. My running buddy has high arches and thin feet. Asics were a good fit for her.

If you cannot go in person to be fitted, try RoadRunnerSports dot com. They will allow you to try the shoe out for sixty days to ensure they will work for you.

Good luck!
