Start Weight:(31 Mar 16) 320.0 lb
Current Weight:(17 May 16) 327.2 lb
Goal Weight:319.0 lb
following: The Primal Blueprint
performance: gaining 2.5 lb a week

I have pretty much weighed 313 since 2006.

Paleo Diet - Mark Sisson's Primitive.
Macronutrient Goals:
1500 calories
110 grams protein = 440 calories = 29%
30 grams carbs = 120 calories = 9%
104 grams fat = 940 calories = 62%

Things I eat that are not primitive: mayo

+/- 10% on the calories otherwise I get too focused on being perfect.
I am a binge eater so my main goal is to stay on program.

How Often Do you weigh yourself?
One method I learned was to weigh yourself every day and then take the average. It balances out the ups and downs.

Week 1 weight: Add 7 weights together and divide by 7 days
Week 2 weight: Add 7 weights together and divide by 7 days
Week 3 weight: Add 7 weights together and divide by 7 days

Weight = Week 2 weight - Week 1 weight
Weight = Week 3 weight - Week 2 weight

This way the ups and downs are averaged out. You have to be patient at first because it takes 2 weeks to get your "weight" but if you are pretty much sticking to your eating plan you won't have to worry about errors due to scales, PMS, bad night, birthday, holiday, etc.

Weigh In
Hi there! Well, here is one way to weigh yourself that I know can help if you are constantly discourage by the scale. Weigh yourself every day - Day 1 would be Monday. After 7 days take the average (add up the 7 days and divide by 7). That is your average weight for the week. THEN the next week weigh yourself 7 days and take the average. The difference between WEEK 1 average and WEEK 2 average is the weight you use. This sounds like a pain, but it averages out the little bumps that go along the way. Every day we can go up and down.

For example, if you weighed yourself on Monday and then on Sunday you were 2 lbs down. You ate something that made you retain water. Then you weigh yourself on Monday and you're the same. Well, you really didn't stay the same, it's only temporary but since you only weigh once a week you are going to get sad for the whole rest of the week!! I don't do this because the scale doesn't bug me too much anymore (been there done that) so I just take it for what it is and as long as I know I have been following my program, I know it will be coming off. Good LUCK!

How my calories should I be eating each day?
The paleo idea is to turn from a carb burning body to a fat burning body. If you limit your carbs to between 100 and 150 a day, your body is forced to access fat stores to convert into energy. The reason you get so hungry in between meals is your body used up all its carbs and is not yet a fat burning machine, so you get mega hungry, especially if you are working out. Try it! You will probably feel like crap the first few days while your body adjusts and then your hunger will decrease a lot!
