I read the Primal Blueprint a year ago, went Paleo completely tracking every calorie & micro-nutrient. I lost about 20lbs, but then fell off the wagon and started eating some carbs. I maintained that loss until Thanksgiving of last year when I quit smoking! Woot! It's been 5 months smoke free! However when I quit it was the Holidays and tons of junk food around and I ate everything in sight! I gained the 20lbs back. Brutal. But then in February I decided to lose that weight again, unfortunately I had brain damage (read: carb addiction) and decided to follow CW. *hangs head in shame* Luckily I wised up and last week digitally dusted off my kindle copy of PB and started over. All that to get to this. I struggle with tracking everything. I hate it, but I feel like I should. Weight, waist size, calories, carbs, protein, fats. It doesn't feel primal, but it nags at me in the back of my mind. Is that CW telling me to count calories and get on the scale? I doubt Grok worried if he was getting enough calories. Do you count calories? As a newbie should I?
