I don't feel restricted in my food choices. I'm HFLC and quite happy.
(Though I don't try to hit 80%... only about 65% as is needed for ketosis.)
I also feel free of many of the symptoms of my autoimmune disease that rode me into the ground day after day for nearly 15 years... because I "restrict" myself and don't eat any grains at all.
It's a wonderful thing IMO.
Derp is the opposite of me, he prefers low fat.
If we were to swap diets we would both likely be miserable and feel restricted however.
Not to mention I know that I would be sick, due to my needs for my brain condition...
And I believe that he would be too since he is very lean and has a higher metabolism, and is simply not suited to HFLC/ketosis.
People do genuinely have different needs in this world and it cannot be boiled down to one right way.
There may be people who feel their best on 80/10/10.
Durian Rider seems to love it and he's been doing it for years.
Is it my place to tell him he is wrong just because he says I am?
