This video is good.

You may also find that your set point isn't as low as the latest fashions make you want it to be. Right now it seems to be cool for women to be not only very thin but also very thin and very muscular. Is this appropriate or obtainable for all women? Probably not.
Probably what is also missing from this video is that it may take a long time to reach a point of health where all these pieces work well together, where you can just eat whatever you want from healthy foods and trust your appetite and stay slim, and some people may need medical help to get there.
I don't think it can be all about food and dieting. I really think you also need the stuff in the primal blueprint fitness program. You don't have to do the exact program, but I think exercise of the type in the PBF program is part of obtaining the full gene expression and restoration of your primal health. Not that it will guarantee a skinny body, but a healthy, strong, resilient body is an amazing and wonderful thing that will become part of restoring your sanity with food.
Currently I eat as much as I want of salmon, white and sweet potatoes, steamed vegetables sometimes with butter, and other meats. I am naughty with cheese, nuts, wine and chocolate. I could probably lose some weight if I cut back on the naughty stuff and ate smaller portions of the good stuff and did more high impact interval crap. I don't count calories. I don't restrict. I eat WHEN. I eat for recovery for my strength program. I don't look like a cross-fit poster girl or like whatever crazy 15% body fat hell someone else might think is ideal.
