    I set it to the second option - just above sedentary. I try to do 30 min walks @ lunchtime every day and then either a gym or home workout 3-4 days a week.

      From experience, I would be tempted by the sedentary pption for a couple of weeks, see how you lose, if too quick, ramp the cals back up,

        I'm so proud!

          This.
          Have you read The Primal Blueprint or are you getting what "100% primal is from this forum?

          Ālso, iirc in the book Mark talks about intermittent fasting as something to be done occasionally rather than everyday. Ie. If you aren't hungry - skip that meal, if you're out and about and the are no good choices or even not so good choices which you're on with falling into your 20% - skip that meal, you're going on a long flight - skip the crap inflight meal).
          If your not hungry 1st thing in the morning that's fine, but you need to work a way to eat extra food in your day and for a lot of people that's more difficult the shorter the eating window they allow.

          My general rule is, when you're hungry easy meal if real food and stop eating when you're no longer hungry (not full or stuffed - unless your goal is weight/muscle gain), if you're not hungry enough to eat a meal of real food don't eat. Ymmv.

          I think to many people get caught up in the dietary tweeks discussed in here and don't just give the program as written a go, then find it hard.
          If you're interested in my (very) occasional updates on how I'm working out and what I'm eating click here.

              Hi all, I wanted to thank you all for your most recent posts, your time and support is really kind, I have taken huge steps forward after reading all your posts and re-reading the Primal Blueprint book, I've finally stopped worrying about the little things... Eating well and getting out for walks and watching my figure slimming down slowly but surely, finally I've put to bed the over-eating/under-eating cycle by being consistent and careful not to eat any trigger foods and without access to this forum I would have just carried on micro-managing my diet and exercise because I couldn't see it for myself. I eat when I'm hungry-stop when I'm full... Simple. Life is good! So, thankyou. ImageUploadedByMarks Daily Apple Forum1379884288.154593.jpg
