      I think portion size is important, especially when you are in the later stages of weight loss and have reached a healthy weight range. PB works without conscious portion control initially for people transitioning from SAD because the increased protein and fats and elimination of processed foods and sugars leads to greater satiety, which in turn leads to what Mark terms a "spontaneous calorie restriction."

      Since we're here on the PB forums, I will focus on the PB and what Mark recommends- he never said calories don't matter. They do matter- but calories do have context and quality. In Mark's own words:

      "Suffice to say, people who weigh a ton and exercise a ton, but eat a ton, still tend to weigh a ton. I think Iíll have that made into a t-shirt . . . ."

      Let's get back to the basics of PB- you can find portion ranges here: How to Eat According to the Primal Blueprint | Mark's Daily Apple
