    Lol, okay maybe I was exaggerating with the fructose g amount. And yes, it would be in one sitting, unfortunately. I just feel uncomfortable eating 700 calories in pure fruits, and then wanting to eat a crapload more afterward because it does nothing to quell my appetite.

      Start slowly. It's a gut bacteria population issue. Buy a good probiotic pill and eat your starch along with a good quality whole milk Greek yogurt or a glass of kefir. It should really help you in the beginning and after months, your gut should repopulate. Also, maybe you'd be better off starting with fruit instead of starch. Something like a banana may be superior to a potato because it's only around 1/3 starch. The sugars may be easier for you to digest than a big pile of starch from a potato, and the sugars may better feed your gut. Maybe even start with apples, then move to bananas, then sweet potatoes, then white potatoes. Find something carby and low fiber that you handle best in the fruit and tuber world.

        choco do you care if the dairy is raw or pasteurized? for example whole fat milk from grass-fed cows, but its pasteurized, good or bad?

          Im not Choco but i think that pasteurization is overblown when it comes to ruining the nutrition of the milk. Those with lastose issues might have a hard time digesting it compared to raw but overall it is still quality nutrition. I think added vitamins can be problematic as well.

          Also if anyone didnt know, cheese aged over 60 days can be raw so load up on some good sharp chedders.

            Raw is best, but it's hard to find. Homogenization as far as I can tell is the absolute worst. If you can find a grassfed slow-pasteurized milk that is non-homogenized, that would be good quality IMO. I don't really drink milk so it's not a staple by any means. The more you drink it, the more you want to make sure you're getting good stuff because the bad stuff adds up fast if it's a staple.

            Sometimes when I make ice cream for friends as a dessert, I'll just get a small pint of regular whole milk for 99 cents. But again, it's not a staple. It's not even once a week. Maybe once a month. If I drank it every day, I'd be getting at a minimum grassfed milk.

              My dad was a manly man and had gorgeous skin with few wrinkles.
              My mom had convinced him to use her oil of olay after each shave.
              I can smell it today and smile while holding back tears.

                Any time you lose a lot of weight you will look older. The skin was stretched tight from the excess fat. Remove the fat and the previously over-stretched skin sags and wrinkles. It doesn't matter how the weight is lost. Nothing to do with protein or primal.
                If you're young the skin will eventually tighten up but if you're older you're likely going to have to live with permanent wrinkles and sags as long as the weight stays down.

                  He works long hours in a high stress job often on the night shift and switches back and forth between days and nights sometimes IIRC. I think micro-manging his diet is not only missing the forrest, it's looking at a whole separate forrest on another continent.

                  If he didn't look a big haggard he wouldn't be human. It's also easier to power through sleep disruption and stress when you are a young pup but, knifegill dearest, you are not 22 anymore.

                    Diet is without a doubt the biggest factor in health. With the right diet you can overcome and manage ridiculous amounts of stress. With the wrong diet, the slightest stressors can send you into a tailspin.

                    Although im not saying that getting a normal sleep schedule going would not be very helpful.

                        Yeah, he's the ancient age of 30. His job being stressful is even more of a reason to change a diet that is already elevating his stress levels.

                        I switch back and forth too, it's not aging me, even if I hate my job and everything about it.

                        • I'll be honest, the way I worked changed after age 30. I can't do all-nighters anymore, let alone consecutive ones that I could do when in univeristy, and really, up to age 30 or so.

                          And then I had a kid. I now know why babies are a young person's game. You're not as much as a zombie with the lack of sleep when you are younger.

                          A friend of mine had a baby at 38, and her prenatal group were all under 25s. A few days after birth, they were all getting together and looking chipper and rested. I had to go and help my friend get sorted to go for coffee. She was a disaster.

                          I remember feeling like that disaster.

                          When I look at younger women having babies, they are so relaxed. They sleep with the baby and it doesn't affect their energy levels (and this is with TERRIBLE diets). THey look all kinds of fresh and chipper and not at all tired or haggard. And, it could be because -- unlike my friend and I -- they had a lot of help from family/friends, or it could be just that they were younger.

                          I was exhausted the first year with DS. Absolutely wrecked, and often looked like a train wreck as well. Looked aged, too.

                          And hten once I was getting more sleep (like today -- since the kid sleeps well for about 12 hrs), i started to look normal and younger again.

                            He says that certain people can't process Vit K2, so they wrinkle more easily. Maybe that's the problem? If it is, I have no idea if it can be solved.

                              30 is when it stops being easy. Yeah I suppose he should just start powering down mega doses of caffein, soda, and candy and his skin will look like a baby's. Right?
