CaveWeirdo, don't worry, I'm eating a lot more now, probably too much
I agree that calories aren't the best measure of food intake but when I'm desperate it seems 'safe' because I know I can lose weight with a calorie deficit and 99% of people giving weight loss advice go on and on about calories like the calorie content of food is the only thing you need to know.
I might have to go back to calorie counting when I stop losing weight though because I doubt I can get to my goal weight without restricting.
What is "short?" 130lb is not wayyyyy too much for anyone. The scale is THE LAST tool of measure that you should be using.I'm short and I'm like 59kg which is way too much for my height.
DITCH THE SCALE
Well you're wrong, and everybody keeps telling you that. Stop trying to do this your way. It's clearly not working for you. You can't do PB half assed, eat "semi-primal", apply your own twisted version of CW, and expect it to work "really fast".I don't think I can lose weight fast unless I keep my calories low.
Read the book, follow the lifestyle, trust the research.
One of the reasons PB works is that you're eating clean, natural foods that your body knows what to do with them. It knows what to do with the nutrients, it knows how to process and eliminate it extremely efficiently. Its why you can eat many more calories than you ever thought possible. When you eat FAKE sup-optimal food, your body is confused and doesn't process it properly, which is why those poor quality carbohydrates and fat arent processed and eliminated, but stored on your body.
Ok, but I don't want to label myself or tell anyone because I don't want people watching me all the time and expecting me to suddenly lose a lot of weight. And I don't want my parents to know. I don't know what to do though... I keep feeling guilty for eating and arguing with myself in my head all the time about whether to eat or not. I keep telling myself that I can lose weight easier on paleo but then I see a skinny girl or someone mentions something to do with weight and my automatic reaction is to think about starving myself.
