I assumed I had been taking in my usual 2,500-3,000 calories a day since I've been Peat-ing. I've been eating whenever I'm hungry, eating basically anything I want, within the guidelines.

I saw a post by Andrew Kim, of what he ate one day, so I decided to join Fitday.com and punch in my nutritional data. My calories are way down on this diet. I'm around 1,500-2,000 calories a day. Yet I feel satisfied, energized, and I'm exceeding the RDA for damn near every nutrient known to man. My weight has fallen a little bit though. I've actually lost about 7 lbs in 3-4 months since I began eating this way. Weight that I didn't need to lose. I'm actually starting to look too thin, so I'm going to up my calorie intake.

What do some of you guys consume, as far as calories go? And what are your heights and weights?

What are you eating on a normal day? Print screen the fitday page? I'm trying to consume ~1800 atm as I have weight that I want to lose.

Im curious what that looks foodwise and do you have an active job/life?
Currently im awaiting a nutritional program from a chekpractitioner. He basically ptefers his clients to eat consostently 3meals a day amd 3000cals.in total which kinda scares the sh*t outta me but tjats due to my past.


Also i read somewhere that ray recommends at least 70-100gr of proteine daily. Does he mean those numners in actual weigth?or does 100 mean 500gr.weigthwise?

usually around 3000-6000, depends on activity level. I'm 6'2" ~185lbs

@dutchie- it's pure protein not the actual food weight.

I surf and skateboard a lot, crashed my car too so I have to bike everywhere for food and such too.

For swollen legs make sure your getting enough salt, potassium and not eating anything allergenic. Getting enough cals and sugar could help too.

cliff that sounds like an awesome diet (pretty similar to mine atm) , just wondering...it's been a long time since I've eaten a raw egg, is there any taste, is it pleasant or repulsive, and how does it digest? I remember once in the past I was with some friends and I ate 2 raw eggs sort of just to be outrageous, expecting to feel nauseous or something, but ended up not even having any gas and feeling pretty good...also is there any particular reason to eat the egg yolk raw as opposed to poached? (though raw is probably more convenient, if nothing else)

Just to stay on topic, I probably eat about 1600-2300 cals a day, a 5'11 male, about 125 pounds...I feel best when I get over 2000 but I only eat when I'm not under stress and can actually chew my food well, so that limits my availability of when to eat between work and other daily tasks, and often I only get about 1700 calories in. I don't feel tremendously worse than when I eat 2000-2300, but not as good either. I find that when I eat under stress it pretty much does little to nothing, and if anything just causes more discomfort. Ideally I'd have a job/lifestyle that would facilitate my being able to eat about 2200 calories a day under peaceful conditions...I think that would also work wonders to help boost the thyroid (more energy, less stress)

If you mix up the egg yolk good with the milk and sugar you can't taste it. I do it raw for the convenience factor.

This is actually quite yummy. I put it in the blender and call it eggnog. ;) But I use white sugar, not brown.

Why brown sugar cliff? I thought RP recommends against brown sugar.

This is the recipe I use.

2 egg yolks
1.5 c milk
2 TB sugar (or more or less to taste)

He does kinda recommend against brown sugar but I like the way it taste a lot better than plain sugar and I have no apparent issues with it. White sugar is better but I'll take the small risk for my flavor addiction :p

surprised people here eat so little

165lb male eating 3500ish - sedentary

How tall are you? How do sedentary people eat that much and not be overweight? Did you build up to that level?

I agree....Unless there not calculating them correctly over 3000 is a lot for the average sedentary male.


Andrew kim just posted what he eats in a day I think it was like 2200 calories


When I'm in a full out BULK i'll eat around 3500-4000 but put on massive amount of weight getting really strong
