Over memorial day weekend I was eating 5000+ calories a day I would bet, and not all of it primal. Stuffing myself every day. Gained about 8lbs at the post meal weigh monday. I did one 30 hour fast and one 16 hour fast since then and I'm now 3lbs lighter than I was last friday. So total weight loss 11lbs in 3-4 days. Were did it go? Some was water weight and bloat, probably a bit of inflammation, and the rest was burned up by to my awesomeness . I am a fat burning beast after all.
This is where the high calorie refeeds help once in a while to break plateaus. Sometimes you just gotta hit the reset button. Of course I've been eating relatively high calorie for a few months now, so I'm not in the same boat as a chronic undereater. Not even close.

3 years "low carb" Primal.
Dietary hierarchy is: Fatty and gelatinous meat/eggs/seafood/offal > raw and fermented dairy > nuts and seeds > fruit > starch > veggies > everything else.
Backyard permaculture, gardening, and fermentation as healthy hobbies. Lift heavy stuff and move a lot.
