I know I've done a thread along these lines before but I'm just looking for clarification and peoples' experiences.
Despite not even achieving my recommended maintenance calorie figure daily, I'm gaining muscle. I'm certainly getting enough protein. Is the total calorie count different for primal folks? I beat myself up about not getting enough food in and sometimes find myself contemplating doing shots of olive oil lol or something equally silly. But I am gaining muscle at the moment so I'm not convinced the usual calorie calculators work (I was using lbm x 18 btw.)
