    I'm currently trying to bulk. 3500kcal/day and still not working. Down 2kg in the last month due to low-level activity, walking and weather. It seems I can't fight the 'Summer slim'. Hopefully I'll put on some mass over Autumn if I just keep at it.

    That is why they hate each other.

    TRUTH
    That's the first I heard of that. I don't understand women and I am one. Then again, I don't dislike other women, so... Maybe you're onto something.

    Oxide, you and I seem to be on the same page

    This is the same for me. I've lessened the carbs (hovering between 25-35/day) and replaced with fat and protein. I now find myself not snacking anymore and only eating twice a day. And I've lost two pounds since Wednesday! Highly recommend trying this if you're trying to lose fat. My total calories have been averaging 1100-1200/day.

    I don't know what my calorie intake is anymore. To lose weight, just find what puts you off your chow. I have had to change it up many times to keep weight loss going.

    Now what works: eating bland paleo food (yes, Stephan Guyenet is right - this works for me) with no snacking and taking MCT oil shots Shangri-La style (in the middle of flavorless, two-hour windows). The only starch: potatoes or sweet potatoes, plain.
    2005 Low Carb - lost @ 80 pounds slowly, avg 15 pounds per year
    2010 Paleo Diet
    2013 Stephan Guyenet Low Food Reward/Seth Roberts Shangri-La with MCT Oil

    Last 40 pounds lost with protein-sparing modified fasts, potato hack, and low food reward/Shangri-La Diet with MCT oil.

    Now down 120+ pounds lost

    Yet I'm still eating 3500kcal/day (calculated based on weighing my food, multiplying fat by 9 and carbs and protein by 4 and adding it all up; I'm keeping a log of what I'm doing this year) and maintaining when I used to maintain on 1500kcal/day. Not all of that can be down to a few hours of walking and a couple of weekly weight sessions.

It's crazy sometimes the drastic differences between men and women in terms of goals and how we get to them!

    I always had a hard time losing weight or gaining weight, too (I say “had” because I’m pregnant for the first time, and I don’t know how that will affect my body). On a Primal diet of 2,200-2,400 calories (starting out at 1/3 carb, 1/3 fat, 1/3 protein and going to about 50% fat, 30% protein and 20%carb), I lost weight without wanting to. I went from 127 to 122 over the course of 3 years—all the while trying not to lose weight, lol! I worked in a preschool, so I was on my feet all day: walking, sprinting after kids, patting backs to put kids to sleep, picking up kids, etc. When I wasn’t working (i.e. Christmas vacation), I ate around 1,600-1,800 calories—sometimes less if I was really busy and didn’t care to take time to eat, lol. I’m 5’4” and 28 years old.
