The next day he made sure to eat 2,000 calories and he instantly felt better.
    So how are you sure that it wasn't something wrong with his hormones that caused his undereating?

    Anything is possible, sure he could have a hormone imbalance problem. But he's been a very picky eater since he was a kid, and pretty much never wanted to eat - it wasn't until he became a swimmer in high school that his hunger level improved to normal levels. I have a feeling that part of the problem is due to severe arthritis in his knees which prevents him from most physical activities, he never gets to work up an appetite, which clearly he needs to do in order to feel hungry. It shocks me that he's as lean and muscular as he is, considering his level of inactivity (besides weightlifting for the top half of his body).

    Too many variables

    But the closer your lifestyle and dietary choices are to optimal, the more you can eat and be okay, pretty much. Personally, I'm definitely not going to jump on the calorie-counting bandwagon again.

    I had to start counting because of leangains - but once I reach my goal it'll be easy to ignore the calories and eat until full on a primal diet/exercise.

    I just finished 5 days of eating only once a day, it was surprisingly easy. I was eating only dinner between 6-8 PM, and that's it, just coffee and water during the day. I noticed I lost quite a few pounds rather quickly, which wasn't what I was going for, but I'll take it as a side benefit. The only thing I noticed was that I need to work out very early in the day, because late afternoon I was kinda getting sluggish and running low on energy. I think I liked enough to try an experiment, I'm gonna do 16/8 on the weekends, and once a day during the week, for the next few weeks and see how that works out.

    Sounds good. I think I'll give my IF experiment another couple of days (so it will be 5 total) and see how my tape measure and scale react.

    Oh my lord, I don't know how you people do it! I get up at 4:30 am every morning to teach fitness classes. By 8:00 I am so hungry to the point of being nauseous! I eat a BAB consisting of 3 eggs, some sautéed veg and usually bacon. Then I'm still hungry for lunch, I think I've made it till 2:00 before. I could probably skip Dinner somedays but it's a habit and I think my DH would start to question if my "diet" is healthy. As he does not adhere to paleo and does not see IF as healthy.

    I just read yesterday's LA Times. There was an article on the front page about a study with mice showing that on a 16/8 schedule, mice on a high fat (which I've come to understand really means high carb and high fat) diet stayed the same weight as control mice on lower fat chow while mice who ate the high fat chow whenever they wanted got fatter. The stupid article came with all kinds of hand-wringing doctor quotes about how this might not be safe for people yadda yadda but I was like "duh." Too bad I can't seem to do it, though. If I didn't have a job, it would be way easier. If I cook my breakfast and bring it to work, just the act of cooking it makes me get hungry enough to eat it immediately. If I didn't have a job, I could just cook later.
