The best macrat for me is the one that makes me stop eating. It's shifted over time but continues to be a trusty guideline.

Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

Winterbike: What I eat every day is what other people eat to treat themselves.
TQP: I find for me that nutrition is much more important than what I do in the gym.

As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

Hahahaha! If only it were that easy! I couldn't lose weight even when eating less than 30 g of carbs per day. I couldn't lose weight even in ketosis. Now I eat way more carbs (don't know how much--stopped counting), and I still haven't lost weight. (HAHA!! Joke's on me.) But haven't gained either. And I'm much happier now that I get to eat sweet potatoes and rice without feeling guilty.

Well I have no idea as to reasoning behind it all, but I do know for me that I am eating way more on this diet, but my weight keeps going down despite me trying to eat more to stop it. Lots of fat protein fruit and veg. My husband is constantly amazed how much I can eat these days, he has seen me on many diets over the years. Weight watchers I was starving all the time...... and craving. I wonder if my newly diagnosed food allergies were causing me to hold on to the weight. Our bodies are all different and finding what works for one just won't work for another. I don't track but my calories have to be a lot higher.....
Starting Primal June 2012 at 148.5lbs, goal weight in November 2012.
Now 95lbs and holding.
Primal, minus eggs, dairy and a myriad of other allergens.
