I am new to the Primal diet lifestyle. Does anyone know how to figure out the % of Carbs, Fat, etc I should be eating as a % of total calories?

Hi PSULadyLion,

Looking around online I found various sources discussing this and while the numbers vary from source to source, they are fairly close to each other. Here's one I found that has a breakdown and a brief discussion of each entity. Each entity is on the left side of the screen and if you click on the link to it, it will open up the page on carbs, protein, fat, et cetera. I'm sure others here may have other sources they like and want to share, but this one is pretty good in my opinion and I think it will help you get started.

I find many links to be too carb heavy. My primal lifestyle naturally has me at 50% fat, 35% protein and 15% carbs works for me.

I read an article that stated percentages this way:

Protein 10-35%
Carbs 45-65%
Fats 20-35%

Sorry I don't have the link.

Good for you Kathy. Climbing all those stairs, definitely a workout. I agree with mummydee, I had a small portion of ice cream at work, they couldn't believe I was eating it. Some people actually ...

How many calories should I be eating? What kind of diet? Macros?
Again, you haven't entered any info, without info it's hard to help you. I left my info as public so I was able to get feedback to help me on my journey.

Remember that this is not an all or nothing proposition. Changing a lifetime of eating habits will not happen overnight. Aim for 80%, any thing over that, is fabulous.
