When I ate 1300 calories/day on CW, I could barely maintain a skinny-fat body.
When I cut to 1100 calories/day on CW, I didn't lose much but I was miserable.
This is with a lot of exercise.
When I ate 1300 calories/day Primal, I was stuffed beyond belief and lost one pound.
When I cut to 1100 calories/day Primal to feel less full, I lost 9 pounds very slowly and now I weigh less now than I did before puberty.
This is with almost no exercise and the midst of a depression.
Y'all can debate back and forth, but I know the path for me.
5'0" female, 42 years old.
Started Primal October 31, 2011, at a skinny fat 111.5 lbs.
Current weight: 101.5. lbs and holding steady. Spring yardwork here we come!
Co-worker 1: Needs to lose ~50. Now he wants to start Mayo Clinic Diet. Yeesh. Give it up, man.
Co-worker 2: Needed to lose ~55. Lost 20 from stress. Started Primal in Sept, lost 20 more, but gained 10 back on a carb spree. We're working on it.
