    Counting...

    I have a question do any of you guys sit down and count how many grams of protein per body weight or whatever or do you guys just eat? I had been reading some post some of this things sound time consuming trying to figure out all this grams of this and grams of that... I just sit down and eat till I feel good, I eat 3 eggs 5 or 6 slices of bacon big glass of water and about 5 strawberries for breakfast who else does that?

    It's hard to say, since it depends on your activity level etc. I'm 5'5, ~112 pounds, but I eat more than my mom, dad and 17-year-old brother combined.

    I eat. It's boring to count. I know nutritional information for my food and will occasionally estimate grams of this and that, but I don't make it a habit. Counting too many macros detract from my enjoyment of eating.

    I'm new to primal eating, but don't count anything except on my IF days I count calories. Otherwise I eat when hungry, stop when satisfied.

    It's helpful to stay literate about the general composition and density of foods but I can think of no faster way to hate life than a daily tally. I also believe eating the same composition and quantity every day is not ideal.

    I used to count when I was actively losing weight. Now that I'm in maintenance mode, I don't need to anymore.

    Counting just to track where you stand for say a week can be very useful. It gets you some baseline data to see if anything needs adjustment.

    I find it useful to count when trying something new or adding new foods, just so I can ballpark it later. But usually, no. I don't count. I DID when I first started PB.
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.
