    Gorbag, as his avatar announces loves his carbs. I suspect this would be why it would not be to his tastes. I, OTOH, would rate that breakfast a 9/10. Skip the dried fruit and it would be perfect. We all have different macro ratios that we prefer.

      I'm with you on the figs... I used to love them, but my sweet tooth has kind of declined lately. I find them to be almost TOO sweet for my palate now.

The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

        Heh, logic don’t seem to be your strongest side Paleobird, even if is very true that I love the taste of healthy carbs it doesn’t then implicate that I don’t enjoy fat and proteins as well...

          I don't have a fear of fat... I eat tons of dairy and coconut oil, I just think there is a point in which it is excessive and harmful.

              Tons hey? So 50-60 % is OK but 70 % is not? How about 61 g.
              Thats pretty bloody close. Anyway who cares, we all have different things that work for us.
              I can't go over 50 g of carbs without feeling crap (10%)

                      You have to be joking right?
                      Are you even primal at all?

                          Depends. I usually get 60-80% of my calories from carbs.

                            OK thats great it works for you

                            But how many g a day is that?
                            Sounds like it would be well over the effortless maintence Mark suggests.
                            Are you even primal? I can't imagine it would be easy getting all those carbs just from fruit and veg.

                                Mark is wrong. Quote from Matt Stone, because I like how he words things:

                                "Yes, you heard that right. In Mark Sisson’s book, The Primal Blueprint, he shows a little chart with carbohydrate levels ideal for weight loss, weight maintenance, and the levels of carbohydrate intake that lead to, in his words, “insidious weight gain.” Get above 150 grams of carbohydrates per day in your diet and you enter the danger zone. I have said this many times and I will say it again – in all the information I’ve ever read on nutrition and health, this could very well be the dumbest and most unsubstantiated tidbit I’ve ever come across. It is downright retarded, with 5 billion…. 5 BILLION living exceptions to the rule that a carbohydrate intake exceeding 150 grams per day triggers insidious weight gain. This is just plain stupid. I couldn’t even believe my eyes when I read it. This guy is, and should be, the laughingstock of anyone who studies obesity or nutritional science. He completely undermines his credibility as an intelligent person with this one uber-knuckleheaded and poorly-thought out conclusion.

                                Let me tell you how I really feel about it… 99% of the 5 BILLION lean people alive on planet earth right now, most of them living in Africa and Asia, eat far more than 150 grams of carbohydrates per day. Meanwhile, countries like the United States enjoy one of the lowest carbohydrate diets in the world – barely getting 50% of their dietary calories from carbohydrates while everyone else on earth aside from the Masai, Eskimo, and some Europeans that also have serious obesity problems get far more of their dietary calories from carbohydrates. The Chinese eat more than 400 grams of carbohydrates per day. Every species of primate gets 70% or more of their dietary calories from carbohydrates.

                                150 grams of carbohydrates. Ha. It has been a couple of months since I’ve even eaten a MEAL with fewer than 150 grams of carbohydrates. I’ve got at least 150 grams of carbs in me by 9am each day, and often 400 grams or more by noon."

                                Not primal, no. It's also not hard to get that level of carbs eating fruit(such as dates), some starch, milk, etc
