    I am around 1700 a day, 50% fat, 35-40 % protein, the rest are carbs. I do eat butter, but sometimes I choose to make ghee out of my yummy pastured butter. I am 5'3 and 126 lbs.

    My goal right now is to change my body comp, it would be nice to lose a couple more pounds but I will be happy if I can get more muscle instead that will replace some of my remaining body fat. I've lost almost 100 pounds at this point, but that was long before I switched to Primal.

    -112g fat
    -107g protein
    -147g carbs
    -total water approx 4 glasses

    My carb intake creeps up when studying or stressed, otherwise I'll have a few high-carb days when I fancy a vegetable binge, but nothing else.

    Hope that gives you an idea!
    I'm at maintenance, but many find that their "weightloss" diet becomes their "maintenance" diet with minimal tweaks.

    I eat 1500-1700 calories per day running at about 45% fat, 30% protein, 25% carbohydrate.

    How many of you eat real butter?
    I eat real butter every day. Probably. . . 2 tbsp worth.

    Anyone seeing loss of cellulite?
    Dry brushing your skin increase circulation which decreases cellulite, as does just building muscle.

    Do you get bloodwork done and are the results good (low triglycerides, cholesterol, etc)?
    Yes, everything is good. I have naturally low cholesterol, so this helps me keep it normal.

    Also some people have to cut back on fats from animals for cholesterol.
    Supplementing with what? I have so much energy and feel amazing.
    What could I be missing?

    And cholesterol and animal fat? Are you serious? I suggest you do some more research about this. Its not how this works, that is CW.

    Between 1200-1400 calories, but it depends on whether or not I'm having dry red wine that evening

    I eat lots of real butter! Most days I don't count calories, but when I do I usually fall into the 1500-1700 range. And every day isn't the same, some days I'm simply not hungry and probably barely break the 1200 mark. Other days I'm hungrier than usual and probably eat over 2000.

    Are you kidding - you diet must be missing other nutrients from carbs. If you were on a higher calorie amount wouldn't be as bad.

    I suggest you do some research on the cholesterol and animal fat. I said SOME people don't do well with very high sat fat.

    I do eat some carbs, so how can I be missing anything? What % of carbs do you think people should be eating?
    Sure if I felt like crap, id know I was missing something. OK SOME people might not, fine, but I do, and I am not missing anything.
    But thanks for your concern.

    I don't track anymore, so I would guess about 1500-1600. I don't pay attention to my cellulite and have not had bloodwork done. I do eat real butter though - sometimes I even like to make it myself from heavy whipping cream (just stirring it real good in a big bowl for 15 or so minutes). I've seen a lot on here about Kerrygold butter, but it's expensive, so I just get Challenge butter (unsalted).
