So I guess I'm also atypical...
I eat between 2500 and 4500 calories per day, depending. Today I'm clocking in at just over 4000 calories: 50% fat and about 25% each carbs/protein (it's squat day ). On days when I don't lift heavy, I typically have a lower carb/calorie intake, and fats make up a higher percentage of calories. I've cut out dairy as of December-ish so no more butter, but I make my own ghee from Kerrygold.
Since switching over to primal/paleo, I've gained about 15lbs, lost maybe an inch or two off my waist, and dropped a pants size. I'm currently 26 years old, 170lbs at 5'9" with a 27" waist and 41" hips. If I had to guess, I'd say I'm somewhere between 17-22% bodyfat (it's been a while since I had it tested - semi-visible six pack, but I carry more fat around my thighs/hips). I would be happy to gain another 15lbs. I lift heavy 3 times a week, try to cycle-commute 3 days a week (at a leisurely pace), and practice yoga a couple times a week.
My bloodwork is fine. Just over 200 for total cholesterol, over 90 for HDL. Can't recall my triglycerides off the top of my head, but they were in a healthy range as well. I also have a "family history" of CVD (all 4 grandparents, to varying degrees), but I feel the best I ever have in my life eating this way.
