  • How much calories do you guys consume?

    Just interested in how much calories you primal athletes consume. Personally I aim for 3000 but rarely get there.

    I consume between 1000 and 3000, but usually 2500.

          People say I am on a "crazy" diet. What is so crazy about eating veggies, fruits, seafood and organ meats? Just because I don't eat whole wheat and processed food doesn't make my diet "crazy". Maybe everyone else with a SAD are the "crazy" ones for putting that junk in their system.

            Up to 1600 a day. Trying to lose weight and increase speed and stamina as a runner.

              depends on the day! I am currently on a recomp so it is as follows:
              Workout day: about 3000 calories
              non workout day : 1500-2000 calories

                  Depends on what training stage I am in and for what event. If I am training hard, I am between 4-7000 calories. Maybe more. It is also usually when I am at my leanest and havea a hard time keeping teh weight on.
                  Every one is different and everyone's intensity is different.
                  In hard events in the past I have resorted to bacon wrapped brownies to keep the calories up (not primal I know but you have to get enough calories)

                    Sometimes I think I under eat tbh............... Workout days somewhere round 2300 - 3000 kcals and around 1800-2000 on non workout days. I train hard when I do and am usually on my feet most of the day at work.

                      Wow, 4000-7000 calories. That must be a ton of food. I wish I could eat that much, but its hard to reach those numbers on a paleo diet, and like malpaz said, without dairy it's even harder.

                        dunno - NEVER ever ever ever (repeat) counting the suckers again

                        BUT, on a sidenote - I eat more on non training days. On my rest day (today coincidentally) I am MUCH more hungry than on a training day.

                          Hard to say, I don’t have anything to weigh food in or the desire to do so. I’d probably say around 2000 on average. I basically just always load up on food but only eat twice a day regularly so it’s hard to get more calories in, but energy levels are good so I don’t feel the need to up those to more.
                          I used to seriously post here, now I prefer to troll.

                              I'm currently doing starting strength and GOMAD (gallon of milk a day), so I'm somewhere around 5,000. In a month or two after I'm finished with GOMAD I'll go back to my maintenance phase of around 3,000. I never count calories though so these are just rough estimations.
