I have been sort of wondering about this, too. I wonder how does one know it's a plateau vs what your natural weight is? How do you know when to try to force your weight lower or to just accept what you've got? And is it possible on this diet to just find a level of eating that keeps you feeling satisfied without thinking about it and have that level work toward your ideal weight and then have your ideal weight automatically be where you stop, no changes needed in what you eat at all ever? Can the level that works to reduce your weight be the same level that leaves you satisfied AND also be the same level that gives you maintenance? Or do you have to reach some ideal through a lot of purposeful restriction and then consciously stop the loss by eating more? In other words, does eating primal in a natural way simply cause your body to reach an ideal equilibrium that's also visually appealing without any particularly vigorous tinkering through either exercise or food?
