I have been primal for about 4 months now and am doing quite well with it. I dont have any carb cravings any more and have few vices (still love diet soda, but it comes and goes in my weekly routine). I definitely enjoy eating this way.
I eat 2-3 meals per day, sometimes 4 if I eat some protein right before bed. My immediate goal is to shed some weight.
I am a fast loser, and in the past it has been very normal for me to lose 5 lbs per week. Yes, I know that is a lot. Lately my loss has slowed considerably and I think I may be consuming too few calories. I eat probably about 15g of carbs a day, with 6g of them coming from greens.
I think I may be consuming way to few calories: ~1000/day, sometimes 1100. I don't really understand 'starvation mode' as I am never hungry and have to force myself to eat. But, my temp is consistently low. My exercise is very good, I was an active triathlete and know how to train. (I don't train like a triathlete anymore, my workouts are very primal - 2x lift heavy, 2x Tabata HIIT, walk ~5hrs/week, that is about it.)
So: do my fellow Grok(ette)s think that I will be a better loser is I increase my calories? Why? How much (I am a 35yo male)?
