    I was being told this, but ive come to the realisation I was still eating too much for me, so I eat slightly less, I am never starving, and I feel good, and have energy and now the scales are consistently moving down more than they were.

    Are you always hungry currently?
    What is a typical day of food for you now? And how much weight do you have to lose?
    Are you 100% primal, or do you have "treats" in there?
    I have tracked my calories very carefully for a very long time. I was not accidentally eating more than I thought. To lose I need to maintain 1,000. That never works and once I reach around 1200 I start gaining again. I do eat 100% primal with the exception of a small amount of raw grass-fed dairy. No primal "treats". I don't "need" to lose but would like to lose 10 pounds of fat. My bigger concern is needing to starve myself for the rest of my life just to maintain myself above where I would like to be anyway! I am hungry often, but more importantly I'm obsessed with food all day long. I'm tired of food being my life.

    Just to report: Today is day 3 of this experiment. I'm up 4 pounds but my waist is the same size. I also feel firmer everywhere. Sort of like my fat is toning up if that makes any sense at all. I would guess this is an inflammation reduction. Also, my energy is up, focus is better, mood is better, stress is down. None of those things previously seemed like problem areas before, yet I still enjoy this further improvement.

    No need to free feed cats.
    My youngest eats raw, but he started that way as a kitten. The other two I could not get to transition. I tried for several months.

    My complaint with not free feeding is that they all follow me around all day begging for food and waking me up in the night for food (which I don't get up to give them). If it was as simple as putting dishes down 1-2 times a day that would be great, but even when accustomed to eating 1-2 times a day they continue begging for it the rest of the time. For the two small cats I gave them unlimited quantity but in limited meal times.

    I have to eat about 3,000/day to lose fat/weight. If I go lower, nothing happens (except I get hella cranky). If I get into the 4,000/day I start to gain. I had been stagnant for the past year on about 2,000/day. Lost 5lbs in the last 5 weeks and I can start to see my abs again.

    This is all paleo/primal low carb-ish/high fat on the weekdays, carb refeeds (600g+) on the weekends.

    *And I'm a guy - I know you asked for women's opinions, but still..............
    People too weak to follow their own dreams will always try to discourage others.

    Good for you. The weight is almost all water and glycogen and the firmness might just be muscles pumping of from the same. Check out 180degreehealth.com if you have not. He is almost entirely focused on what you are trying to do. A lot of people fly off the handle because he promotes junk food and grains for people in severe need of metabolic recovery but if you get passed that, he has some great advice and the people there are very helpful.

    No need to free feed cats.
    Cats need to be fed separately or in groups of similar eating style. As predators they are natural scavengers and thieves.

    I'm an English professor. The switch of "your" and "you're" and the bad punctuation was deliberate. Sorry you missed it.
