Below are resources for this class:

Fat For Fuel, Dr Mercola:
Dr. Tim Noakes, wrote the book The Lore of Running which he totally renounces today from a carbohydrate fueling stand point. Don't buy it. He has other books out there that he has corrected his findings in. Here is a link to his foundation:
For athletic performance, Phil Maffetone and the Maffetone Method is a great resource:
Glucose and Ketone blood meter: Keto-Mojo
Sugar alcohols are a weird deal. They all can cause gastrointestinal problems and some mess with ketosis. Erythritol is the one that is ok. Here is a list of other sweeteners and their glycemic indexes. GI is a rating system for how much of an insulin response it elicits in our body. You see high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is 87. Use that as a reference as horrible.
Pure stevia 0
Stevia glycerite 0
Monk Fruit 0
Yacon syrup 1
Maple syrup 54
Table sugar 68
Friend and mentor Dr. Cory Holly has a great article here:
Use his charts to calculate protein needs.
I found calculators for lean muscle mass, but you have to estimate your fat mass. I will suggest you get a lean muscle mass done with a DEXA scan or I have a scale that can get that for you as well. DEXA is the gold standard though and will cost you a bit ($150) and the closest place I know of is in Chicago. I do them for $65, but will do them for you guys for $50 since you are in the class.
