      Higher carb day

      In the book there is a small mention of the benefit of a higher carb day for those who choose to do lower carb the majority of the time. I would like to know the significance of this. Is it to reset leptin? If so how does this work (quite an interesting hormone I'm told). Also is it to "reset insulin sensitivity" and how does that work?

      I'm sure others on the forum would like this cleared up too. I'm experimenting with it at the moment and am finding it beneficial for sprint performance more than anything. I'm not sure whether to eat more fruit or more primal friendly starch or both - doesn't fruit preferentially fill liver glycogen?

      Thanks!

        To add to David's question, years ago I tried out The Anabolic Diet, which apparently later became The Metabolic Diet, by Mauro DiPasquale. His reasoning for periodic carb loading all had to do with muscle building. Are you familiar with DiPasquale? Is there any truth to his work, and might it be helpful for the Primal body builders and hard gainers to do (not that I fit into either of those categories) with Primal foods?

          Regarding meat: any meat-- mammals, reptiles, amphibians, aquatic, or birds.

          I have eaten just about anything I could catch, but lately I am having questions.

          I would appreciate an in-depth study on consuming scavengers. They are just as full of poisons and nasty things as the meat produced on stockyards and factory farms.

          When --if at all--is it good to consider mussels, crabs, cat fish, pigs, buzzards, etc. etc. to be good for human consumption.

          I am starting to have feelings that eating animals of that ilk is akin to dumpster diving.

            Hello,

            I have been a type 1 diabetic since age 5, and recently started living primal! Seeing as I control my insulin production manually, I would love to see a post about living primally with type 1 and how to best optimize my overall health. Any information on this would be most appreciated.

            Thanks!

              It would be nice to see something about the potential toxicity, allergy, etc. effects of supplements. And, in that same vein, something about the potential release of toxins and their effects once once goes PB diet (I have a rash I am pretty certain is related).

                Could you do a post on primal lunchbox? I do house remodeling and must eat out of a small cooler, with no access to a kitchen. I don't want to eat cold meat everyday or a salad everyday. Need some creative inspiration on this one.

                  Could you run a topic on stress please. We all know that stress is bad for us - both physically and mentally but how is it bad for us? Does going primal help with the stress? How would Grok have dealt with stress? I'm not talking work, money, commuting type stress. I'm talking close family bereavement (x3), divorce, moving home all in less than a year type stress. Grok wouldn't have had access to Yoga or Pilates so what would he have done instead?

                      How about Mushrooms? I love those little buggers and i'd like to hear about the health benefits (or any problems) with them, along with maybe a breakdown of the different kinds, and the degree of primality to them? (made that word up!)

                        I honestly haven't read all 7 pages of ideas. I did, however, just go through the blog's "Raising Seedlings" archive. I'm a homeschooling mom to three kids, 7, 5, and 2 1/2. I'd like to do a nutrition unit with them. I have the primal food pyramid ready to go along with the PB and the PB Cookbook. I'm looking for other reading recommendations.

                        One I've gotten from the forum is "The Omnivore's Dilemma." Apparently there's a juvenile version. I'm wondering if there are other books geared toward kids or that I can adapt or highlight sections of for the kids. Thanks!

                          Hi,

                          There is a new study that is reviewed by the BBC here http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-10726414
                          suggesting that high meat intake is bad for us and related to weight gain. My husband is the carb king and is not happy about my efforts on the primal diet as all that lack of bread and starches makes him uncomfy.

                          Could you assess this study?

                              DOES THE BODY BURN FAT FOR ENERGY IF IT IS NOT IN KETOSIS ?

                              Can you lose weight if your body is not in ketosis ? If your body is burning fat as it's major fuel shouldn't we always be in ketosis ?

                              CONFUSED........

                                Hi Primal Toad,

                                I found this blog article (Science Based Medicine Blog) that speaks to some of the study's weaknesses.
