    Leida was clearly eating significantly more than 1000 cals per day on average for the week that you homed in on.

    Again, I suggest that you are projecting something in terms of your personal eating disorders.
    F 5 ft 3. HW: 196 lbs. Primal SW (May 2011): 182 lbs (42% BF)... W June '12: 160 lbs (29% BF) (UK size 12, US size 8). GW: ~24% BF - have ditched the scales til I fit into a pair of UK size 10 bootcut jeans. Currently aligning towards 'The Perfect Health Diet' having swapped some fat for potatoes.

    Don't most of us on Primal do this?

    Most of us? No.

    Apparently this is something from another source -- I haven't dug into it but she mentioned it somewhere else (or maybe on this thread).

    I tend to eat a consistent 1500-1700 calories per day.

    Nope. I think I'd kill somebody if I tried to run on less than 1000/day with any regularity. I eat at least double that. I might have a day now and then when my appetite tells me I don't want to eat much, but there's no way I could undereat to that extent as a regular thing.

    This is my range as well, as active as I am I won't even consider dropping my intake that low - for any reason.

    I used to eat like that a lot, except with me, it was "try to eat way low" "try to eat way low" "try to eat way low" "oops, I binged." Rinse, repeat.

    So far can't comment on the impact of increased swimming vs land aerobics - I am obviously no Michael Phelps, so I dunno if you need to swim daily to see the effects?

    //////////////////////

    One more time:

    This quote is from my last 3 weeks on the Ultimate Diet 2.0. This is very deliberate calorie and carbs staggering method. It actually works, but I find it very hard because the daily intake is so low on 4-5 days and so high on 1-2 days. Funny, huh.

    I did Ultimate Diet 2.0 3 times, first time for 6 weeks, then 4 weeks,and this particular one I abandoned during Week 3 - over 4+ years on Whole foods/paleo/Primal. This is hardly representative of how I normally eat. When I eat normally I don't even bother recording calories, unless I am trying something new, for example adding beans to see how my carb count looks like or for a month wen I was trying to keep carbs total under 25 g. My journal coincides with attempts to very strict dieting. When I am not strict, I don't see the point of a journal.

    Honestly, I am one of those people who are more likely to over- than undereat. Hence the attempts to stricter caloric controls.

    Ah! There's the source. I haven't looked into the Ultimate Diet 2.0, so I can't comment on it, you know?

    Leida, considering your height weight, why do you go through these protocols? Is it to lose a sort of 8-10 lbs gain or something from not chronicling? Or something else?

    I know that, for myself, I hardly ever chronicle anything -- but I will do a quick look on a random day by a quick calorie count (using a counter). I don't actually weigh/measure, but my husband makes everything, so he has a good sense of the amounts that I eat (he's good at doing that anyway from years and years of measuring).

    I was happy with my weight at the doctor's office, but I weighed myself before at my friend's place just to keep myself from gettng any surprises, and on her scale, I was 2 kilos (4 lbs) more than at the doctor's office. I also feel a bit "puffier" lately (though I am menstruating currently), and my waist was up at 27 inches.

    None of this is inherently bad,b ecause in another 4 days, I could be back on her scale at the same weight as the dr's office (which means i'd weigh less there), and I'll be back at 26 inches at the waist and such, you know?

    For me, it's a matter of fine-tuning what I'm already doing.

    For example, I know that I'm currently not getting enough sleep AND I'm not getting enough exercise. I know that if I dialed in on those things, I'd "lose the 4.4 lbs" really quickly, and likely the inch too. DH and I have been talking about how I can get more exercise, as our schedule is really tight. Sleep s just up to me going to bed earlier!

    I'm also giving up caffine, so that's been an interesting physiological experience.

    I wonder if just doing something simple would make the difference for such things, rather than going to extremes. Although, I can see that IFing might be seen as "extreme" or being paleo itself might be.

    Because U.D.2.0 is the only method I found that lead me to consistently lose fat if I manage to stay faithful to it. Everything else leads to a weight gain.

    I am admiring anyone who could drop whatever fat that they need to drop. I have numerous character flaws that lead me to being unable to do so. I don't drink alcohol or ingest caffeine, cook every meal for 3 people from organic, grass-fed and heritage, go to bed between 8 and 9 pm, work at a standing desk/go for a stroll daily and adhere to what I consider a good workout schedule (lifting every 3rd day, support 2x a week, elliptical HIT/swimming for cardio). But my character flaws lead me to overeat and treat myself with food, so it leads to a healthy middle-aged woman with too much fat on her frame for her liking. It's really very simple.

    Hence trying stricter controls, meditation and studying mindful eating in an effort to overcome the said character flaws. So far unsuccessfully.
