Here women are "recommended" to eat 35g/day. Needless to say, I just ignored it. I've been logging my macronutrient intake over the past few days (personal project). Not controlling it, just making notes at the end of the day. The lowest protein I ate was 66g. The highest was 130g. Averaging 96g/day over the course of 12 days, but usually eating 70-85g. Just used the 0.7 per lean pound thing. 73g a day.

I rarely talk to people about Paleo/Primal, but, when I do, it's when they're NOT complaining about their weight or health.
You see, I don't really "do" pity. And one thing I've learned about people is that they're more open to suggestion when they're happy and stable. When they complain they only ever want pity, not to be advised.
