    Can now see the wood for the trees on this. i've upped my cals to 1500, dusted off me Pilates Matt and hidden my scales. I'm really grateful for the time you've spent replying to this ����
    This is how the forums should work. Yay us. We didn't even fight about PUFA sources and dietary carbohydrate content. Woot!

If I increased my calorie amount to the 1,900, would I be losing fat quicker? I have a desk job and do light to moderate exercise 4-5 days a week.

    Not meaning to hijack this thread by any means but am hoping it will help the OP and anyone else reading this as well as myself.

    What did u set your activity level to on that bmr calculator. Mosy people overestimate their activity. If u are a desk jockey just doing 2-3 worlputs a week, I would use 'sedentary' as the starting point and monitor from there

    I think the OP needs more sugar to fix the obvious thyroid issues

    I set it to the second option - just above sedentary. I try to do 30 min walks @ lunchtime every day and then either a gym or home workout 3-4 days a week.

    From experience, I would be tempted by the sedentary pption for a couple of weeks, see how you lose, if too quick, ramp the cals back up,

    This.
    Have you read The Primal Blueprint or are you getting what "100% primal is from this forum?

    Ālso, iirc in the book Mark talks about intermittent fasting as something to be done occasionally rather than everyday. Ie. If you aren't hungry - skip that meal, if you're out and about and the are no good choices or even not so good choices which you're on with falling into your 20% - skip that meal, you're going on a long flight - skip the crap inflight meal).
    If your not hungry 1st thing in the morning that's fine, but you need to work a way to eat extra food in your day and for a lot of people that's more difficult the shorter the eating window they allow.

    My general rule is, when you're hungry easy meal if real food and stop eating when you're no longer hungry (not full or stuffed - unless your goal is weight/muscle gain), if you're not hungry enough to eat a meal of real food don't eat. Ymmv.

    I think to many people get caught up in the dietary tweeks discussed in here and don't just give the program as written a go, then find it hard.
